Fort Clatsop commemorates the 1805-06 winter encampment of the 33-member Lewis and Clark Expedition. A 1955 community-built replica of the explorers’ 50’x50′ Fort Clatsop is the focus of the park. The fort, historic canoe landing, and spring are nestled in the coastal forests and wetlands of the Coast Range as it merges with the Columbia River Estuary. There are approximately 2 miles of hiking trails, through woodlands, availble.
Even though the replica fort was destroyed in a fire in the fall of 2005, the site continues to be open. The visitor center, expanded museum store, newly renovated theater, brand new orientation film, new 6.5 mile Fort To Sea Trail and new 1 mile Netul River Trail are all available to the public in addition to visiting the fort site.
