While in Astoria a visit to Fort Clatsop will be an interesting history lesson showing how the pioneers survived in this harsh climate. Take the time to have a guided tour by rangers to maximise the information

If you are even a casual student of American history this is a must see. I spent probably an hour here and then actually spent money in the store.

Glad we stopped, nice museum, the actual fort was pretty interesting. Gift shop is well stocked with books and other goodies. Right on the way between Seaside and Astoria, good signs so easy to find.

Really enjoyed this attraction. It was not overdone - just nicely done. The recreation of the fort was interesting and the trip down to the river was a nice trip with trees labeled, etc.

This is the site where Lewis and Clark over wintered and prepared to return east after their journey west. Our volunteer docent added good local information to make the reconstructed fort come alive. The gift shop has items hard to find elsewhere.

Dogs are allowed on all outside areas and trails. They are not allowed in the museum portion. The fort itself is so small that you can stand in the doorway and peek in.
