  • Really interesting park, some nice camping spots, some great walking trails, lots of area and beautiful beach accesses. We’ve come here every time we visit the area and it never gets old!  more »
  • A terrible waste of time. The Oregon state park service should be ashamed of themselves. The entire park is not taken care of, lacks safety precautions and is dangerous in some parts of the park...  more »
  • We drove to Fort Stevens State Park early in the morning from Astoria to visit the Wreck of the Peter Iredale and we also walked the beach which was pretty nice. We came on Wednesday, July 28 and it....  more »
  • Great disc golf course running through portions of the historical site. Currently has 9 holes, but they're wanting to add more. That would be amazing; It's a great way to showcase the ruins. Rangers and employees all extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Will continue to visit again and again. There is always something to discover.
  • Absolutely enjoy this area. It’s our third time going and we love to fish here. Bathrooms, picnic area with tables. Beautiful scenery. We went on a cloudy day. Seen a bald eagle. Camping locations near by and a market. Swimming and hiking. Lots too see and the beach is not to far either.
  • The camping here was good but a little cramped. Tons of spots but they fill fast. They also have yurts and just a couple cabins, which I'm sure are hard to get. Bathrooms where very clean, great for family camping. Overall a good place to set up especially if you come to the area for fishing
  • Nice place to camp. However, showers are not close to certain circles, so you do have to walk to the next camp sites which can be far depending the camp site circle. The site is older, so the paths to restrooms are not marked with lights nor have signage. Make sure you look for the path during the day to familiarize yourself so its easier during night time.
  • This place is an amazing bit of history, where you can get up close and even wander through the fortifications and see some of the coastal defense guns up close. Take a walk through the museum and learn some interesting facts about Fort Stevens through the years. A must see if you're in the area!
