The End of the Oregon Trail

Warrenton is at the end of the Oregon Trail. Located west across Young’s Bay from Astoria, it sits on the most northwestern point of the State of Oregon. The area’s history is visible to this day.

Explore the same landscapes seen during expeditions made by the Corps of Discovery in the early 1800s. Surrounded by water, Warrenton is a charming community located on the Columbia River, with a sizable marina and Victorian-era homes. The nearby Fort Stevens State Park, which extends up to the jetty at the mouth of the Columbia, offers camping, trails, beach access, and swimming at Coffenbury Lake. Fort Stevens itself was built overlooking the Columbia during the 1850s and is now a military museum open to the public. On the Pacific Coast nearby, the large iron skeleton of the 1906 shipwreck Peter Iredale sits embedded in the sand.
