Fort Clatsop National Memorial

Fort Clatsop National Memorial Review

See where the 30-member Lewis and Clark Expedition endured a rain-soaked winter in 1805–06, hunting, gathering food, making salt, and trading with the local Clatsops, Chinooks, and Tillamooks. This memorial is a faithful replica of the log fort depicted in Clark's journal. The park has evolved into a 3,000-acre, forested wonderland, including an exhibit hall, gift shop, film, and trails. Park rangers dress in period garb during the summer and perform such early-19th-century tasks as making fire with flint and steel. Hikers will enjoy the 1.5-mile Netul Landing trail and the 6.5-mile Fort to Sea trail.
