The park is beautiful! The best part for me is the week we spent we were completely unplugged. AT&T doesn't work at the campground. Also we were in a site that couldn't get satellite service either. At first, we were a bit miffed but it turned puff to be a wonderful blessing. The bathrooms could have been cleaner. The loop we stayed in had no sewer connections. We had water and 50 amp service. There were 32 sites taken by our group. It was a wonderful time and being unplugged helped us reconnect with each other and those we love.
The camp sites are very nice. There are clean showers and bathrooms on each loop. The hiking and bicycling paths are really nice and the beach was so awesome. There is a ship wreck to explore and a bald eagle who comes out in the evening near the beach parking lot.

We love going out to Fort Stevens. We first came camping as a family, but now that we've moved to Astoria, we got as often as the weather/time allows. We love swimming on the river side and taking walks. It's always been clean and pleasant, and lovely to get out in nature. The only area I avoid is the jetty, because you can get caught out there with the tides.
This is such a neat park. There's a cool shipwreck. And the walk out to the end of the jetty is not to be missed. It's cool to reach the beach there and think about how you're standing on the very northwestern tip of Oregon, right where a grand river meets the open seas.
Was one of the best places to camp. Beautiful and lots to do and see. Problem is the mosquitoes have grown beyond reason. Too many. Need to start fogging the camp before the camping season again. If you can survive the mosquitoes then this is the place to go.
