  • This is a really nice historical park. It is a former U.S. Army Coastal artillery base, one of three built to protect the mouth of the Columbia River from invading naval forces. It includes barracks, officers homes, and massive concrete bunkers. Today it offers scenic vistas of the Columbia River estuary. If you are lucky, the barracks may be open and allow visitors into the small museum area.
  • Fort Columbia provides the amazing historical experience of Fort Stevens without all the people. Beautiful park with plenty to explore, I would recommend planning a visit when the museum is open, or if you're lucky- when they're doing tours of the civil defence bunker.
  • Our family favorite place. We come here at least one a month. We live in Seaside. Historical, view, nature, photo shots perfect. We hide eggs for Easter here grass thick flowers blooming.
  • It's a beautiful spot overlooking the ocean and the Captain's Quarters, enlisted men quarters, are fun to visit. There's also a trail behind the quarters that I just mentioned.
  • Great history. Fort was active through WWII. Spent a good deal of my youth going through gunnery emplacements back in the day.
