We loved visiting Fort Clatsop. Upon arrival, we rushed to the fort as they were having a special demonstration of how Lewis & Clark Expedition would have celebrated 4th of July. They read the entries for the two July 4th days they were en route (not in Oregon) and talked about the meaning of Independence Day to the expedition. Then... 更多
Very informative visitors center with tons of artifacts. There are also two films, one about Lewis and Clark and one about the same thing but told as a story through the eyes of a Native American whose ancestors handed down their stories of the winter Lewis and Clark spent at Clatsop. The forest is majestic, so it is worth going... 更多
There's a lot of bad reviews for the wrong reasons (weather, rude kid, etc), and now I'm adding one. Rangers gave me a color map of the trails like it was something special. It was tiny and I couldn't match it N or S or buildings. Trail signs didn't match what I wanted-- Netul Landing. I think it said 'canoe... 更多
Even though I am a history buff, I didn't expect to spend an entire morning at Fort Clatsop NHP. There are plenty of things to see and do here. The visitor's center includes a number of exhibits which tells the story of Lewis & Clarks stay in the area during the winter of 1805-1806. They also show two movies each... 更多
This is the highlight of Lewis and Clark Expedition history. An essential part of American history, at the end of their trail. It is a well done replica of their original winter fort. We have been here several times and learned more each visit, especially after reading Undaunted Courage. Perfect family activity for kids of all ages.
Nicely presented exhibit which shows the story of that long winter far west for the Corps of discovery. The rangers are well informed and show and tell a lively story. We were there only for a short hour, but saw the museum exhibit, visited the replica fort, heard the tales of the half blind Frenchman shooting Lewis through the bottocks,... 更多
Nice and well preserved National Memorial and a fundamental piece of the local history. It's, obviously, a replica rebuild on the original grounds, and there's lots of info available for you to learn about it. The forest nearby makes it nice for hiking.
This is a nice little stop. It has one of the better park movies about the site being visited, The staff was extremely friendly. The small fort and exhibits gives insight the Lewis & Clark journey. Overall, a great history lesson summary of the exploration.
Ft. Clatsop was mildly interesting, but 4 1/2 stars?!!! C'mon! The fort looks like it was built a few years ago; not particularly authentic, even if it is an exact replica. Do yourself a favor and spend your time hiking the trail from the Visitor's Center to the beach. The video presentations were OK, but no more than that.
