A former coastal defense fort at the mouth of the Columbia River active from the Civil War to World War II, Fort Stevens State Park still shows remnants of its military past. Visitors can take a free underground tour of rare turn-of-the-century artillery gun batteries, the fort's old jail and an extensive military museum. Families enjoy stopping at Fort Stevens State Park for a glimpse of the beached wreck of Peter Iredale, which ran aground on Clatsop Spit in 1906. But in addition to exciting historical pieces, Fort Stevens is a 4,300-acre park that offers camping, freshwater lake swimming and hiking trails.
