The fort is quite small and interesting to see how Lewis and Clark spent the winter. The movie in the visitor center is worth waiting to see.

This isn't a huge place, but worth an hour visit. It has a nice museum and a small fort down a short trail.

I'm sure the original wasn't built this good. It does give everyone a idea of how they survived the harsh winter waiting to go back home.

Along with the reconstructed fort, there is an interesting museum (with gift shop) and a number of trails you can walk. We visited on a sunny day (which they say is unusual) and enjoyed viewing the quarters in the fort, walking out to the river,...More

Ft. Clatsop is not only a historically important and interesting place but the park and trail system are top notch and the park staff is always looking for more ways to improve conservation in the area.

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.
