Small but informative museum. We have visited several times and never tire of it, as each time is different. The fort itself has been meticulously recreated. If you get there early before the crowds to explore on your own you can really get a feel for what it might have been like for men who made this epic journey. You... More

There was not much going on when we visited. It was a quick visit maybe spent 30 minutes. We have been to many forts not one of our favorites.

It's hard to describe this place without using superlatives. In short, it is awesome. The replica of the Fort Clatsop of the Lewis and Clark expedition is much more detailed than like exhibits elsewhere and provides a great insight into how they lived when they occupied it. The surrounding area is Pacific Northwest scenery at its finest. Their museum is... More

The signage for the Fort is excellent and so it is easy to find. The museum is small but very informative. The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. The walk to the replica of the fort was lovely and peaceful with stately cedar trees along the path. The whole experience gave a sense of the history of the place.

My kids had a great time seeing the replica of the fort and just how small it was. The paths around the area were nice and they liked seeing the drawings from Lewis and Clark that matched up with the plants around the park. The items inside are also very interesting and the kids liked seeing all the clothes and... More

If you are a Lewis and Clark history fan you need to visit this. Not the original buildings but a good recreation. This facility has access for anyone with a disability.

Reproduction of the fort and camp for the Lewis and Clark expedition. Well presented and maintained with hiking trails, demonstrations, educational museum and self guided or guided tours. We interacted with docents dressed in period costumes: candle making by a camp fire, and a demonstration on how to load and shoot a musket. The statues representing the Lewis and Clark... More

An actual reproduction of the winter fort and camp for the Lewis and Clark expedition. There is a great museum and informative guides or you can tour without guides. A must stop for all ages.

The museum is very educational and our group learned a lot more about Lewis and Clark than we previously knew. Especially enjoyed talking with the ranger in the fort area outside for more details. It is a little out of the way, but well worth the drive. Great visit!
