We went to several informative presentations led by rangers and volunteers. All were interesting and well done. The Junior Ranger program is a great way to get children involved. It is very hard to imagine how difficult life must have been for Lewis and Clark and their company. This park does a great job of making that history come alive.
Lewis&Clark lovers, rejoice! Feel the spirit of exploration as you tour their recreated dorms and hike the easy trail through lush forest and wooden bridges. Attend short lectures and demonstrations, and get your fill of the westward movement! Happy travels!

Very informative visitors center with tons of artifacts.

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
