Get splashed! Fort Stevens State Park  is your front-row seat for watching the Columbia River join the Pacific Ocean.

Its offerings to campers are unique, diverse and fun. Where else can you swim in a freshwater lake in the morning, then while away your afternoon beachcombing near an old shipwreck?

Walk along the six miles of hiking trails or bike on the nine miles of biking trails through dunes, shorepines, hemlock and spruce forests. Talk with long-distance hikers as they leave this spot for their journey along the Oregon Coast Trail. Visit the historical museum on site and learn about the military history of Fort Stevens.

Yes – that is ALL in one state park!

Yurts! Cabins! Not into sleeping in tents? Yurts are available for rent here, too. And do you know what else? Deluxe cabins.
