Experience History Come Alive at Fort Clatsop
Fort clastop is also the starting point for a number of hiking trails including the Fort-to-Sea, Kwis Kwis, Netul trail, & South Clatsop Slough trail.
Best time to come:
Mid-June through Labor day
12:30pm-3pm will give you the best chances to see ranger led programs and demos!
Time spent varies greatly depending on time of year and how much you want to do. Add more time if there will be ranger programs, you want to watch all the movies, or if you plan to hike a longer trail such as the Kwis Kwis, South Slough, Or Fort-to-Sea. If you plan to hike, you may want to consider making it an activity for an additional day.
