Absolutely the most scenic State Park we've seen yet. Large sites with lots of trees. Great walking paths, easy 1 mile walk to the beach and shipwreck. Fort Stevens museum was outstanding, the walking tour was very informative too. Everywhere you go, there is more to see, from the Pacific Ocean to the Columbia River. All of the staff, volunteer and paid, were wonderful and very helpful. Satellite and TV reception were very site and weather dependant. Stay a week to see it all. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

In addition to everything to see in the park, don't miss Fort Clatsop, Seaside, the Astoria Column, and especially the Columbia River Maritime Museum.

This is our 2nd stay and we love it even more than the 1st time. Full hookups in the middle of the forest is awesome and the park has so much to offer everyone. Trails everywhere that are accessible to all. We have a big rig and we felt very comfortable getting in and out of the park. An Oregon park jewel! We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Astoria Coffeehouse and Bistro was a great place for drinks and food. We went there 3x in 3 days!

Stayed 4 nites in early June. Weather drier & warmer than might usu be expected. Nice shaded P/W site. Big dump station on the way out works fine. Close rest/shower room with plenty hot water if you don't mind pushing the button every 2 mins. Lots to do in the area incl Astoria, Seaside, Canon Beach. Even made a day trip to the cheese factory at Tillamook. 3rd time camping here & definitely will return. Do think its strange that have only 1 trash/recycling site for such a big park, but it works OK. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you have any VA disability, investigate the Oregon State Parks pass. 5 consecutive days (max 10 per month) free camping. Doesn't include Yurts or cabins & you do have to pay the $8 reservation fee (if you reserve in advance). Doesn't matter where you live, if you have proof of VA disability you're eligible but you have to have the pass when you arrive. See Ore State Parks homepage for info.

This is the most beautiful park we stayed in during our tour of Oregon! Each camping loop is tucked amongst massive pine trees, the sites feel large and secluded. The beach goes for miles; or you can follow the loop road around until you're at the Columbia River. I wish we had stayed longer than a night, there was so much to see and do! We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

There are several historical features to visit in this park.

We stayed in Loop O which has more non-shaded sites than any of the other loops. Very large campground with paved roads and sites, lots of full hook-ups and with multiple sizes to fit large RV's. Many walking and biking trails to different attractions within the park including being very close to the ocean with miles of beach that can be walked or driven along. The grounds and washrooms are kept very clean. Beautiful location and setting which we would return to. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Nearby Warrenton has a large Fred Meyer, Costco, and other shopping. Astoria has a neat trolley that travels along the pier with a guide giving historical details

This is a large park with many sites most full service or water and electric. Most sites were built decades ago so aren't the most modern. Services were all satisfactory and this park has a lot to offer, ocean beaches, lakes, paved trails, historical sites etc. You are allowed to drive on the beach but access is thankfully limited to 4-wheel drive so there is limited traffic. Biggest issue is too many kids on weekends whose parents seem to think the roadways are their personal playground. We plan on returning for a longer visit next year. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure and allow plenty of time to visit the military ruins and take the tours.

Paved streets and campsites. After weekend rain and high winds, camp hosts and rangers worked very long hours recovering w/cleanup efforts. Noticeably vacant spaces due to rainy weather conditions much to our surprise. Burn ban in effect and understandable though campfire would have been nice. Loop I sites found comfortable, some open allowing use of our DISH Tailgater. Sirius radio reception fine, daytime, for short periods. We were actually not outside enjoying this spacious state park. With excellent nearby shopping and no sales tax for purchases meant we spent more $s than in other states. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Costco, Fred Meyers, AT&T, Verizon, Petco, Starbucks, Dutch Bros Coffee, fast food restaurants not far away

Ft. Stevens is a great park. We always come down the Oregon Coast on our way back to Arizona at the end of our summer RV trip. We always include the Astoria area and we always stay at Ft. Stevens. The park is quite large and has hundreds of camping sites. Most of the sites are under some large trees and getting satellite signal will be a challenge. The park is beautiful and very well kept. You really can't go wrong here. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Price includes a one time online reservation fee of $8. As with every other Oregon state park we stayed in, this one was wonderful. The campground is quiet, very clean, well maintained, and extremely large with over 400 campsites. Even though there are a lot of campsites, the park did not seem overcrowded or closed in. There is a large network of biking and hiking trails that also double as walking areas for your pet. The bathrooms and showers are immaculate and well maintained. It took a minute or two to get the shower temperature just right, but once regulated there was no problem. Our site was very well shaded, but some others are a little more open. Sites are blacktopped and fairly level. Our site had 50 amp service with a sewer hookup. There is no cable or Wifi, but we were able to get about six channels with our antenna and we had a strong signal with Verizon. It was very easy to navigate through the park in out 36' motorhome with easy areas to hookup and unhook our tow. We stayed here three nights and would stay here or in any other Oregon state park again. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Ft Stevens and the gun emplacements from WWII are very interesting and worth the time to take a look.

This a VERY large campground and sights are kind of close to each other, but still nice. Great sights to see in area either by foot or car, so make sure and plan some time to enjoy all the area has to offer. Very clean bathrooms and free showers. I found it very odd that for large campground there is NO trash cans around the park, but yet, dog poop bags, so if you pick it up you have to carry long way to throw away...(I did). FYI the maps we were given of the park and area did not seem to be correct on mileage or paths. I would for sure stay here again. No ATT cell at campground but pick up in other spots in park. $30.00 a night is WAY less than the KOA right before the park, so please don't give KOA your money unless you want all the bells and whistles of a KOA. I would of given this a 10 but sights are close and the no trash can thing... We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure and take the time to see all the sights in area, rather by foot, car or bike.

We stayed at the Fort Stevens State Park for 4 days in our 40' RV. Check in was easy at the office due to our having reservations online and our name was on the camp post at our spot. Getting to our site was easy and pulling in was not a problem in space 65 C loop. Our hookups were located in the right location and they were in working order. Our Verizon hotspot worked surprisingly great for not having a town close by. Our satellite worked fine with all the trees around after I pulled in another way to get a clear line of sight signal through the thick forest. It was one of the reasons we chose this spot was for there being a clear sky view. There are awesome hiking trails through the park to the Fort or the beach where you can see the shipwreck of the Peter Iredale. This park has a lot of history of military forts and bunkers. This park is quiet on weekdays but the weekends are a nightmare, barking dogs, screaming kids, kids on bikes, people walking through your camp, no regard for privacy. The bathrooms are totally outdated, spiders everywhere. The park volunteers are friendly and bring firewood to your camp. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Check out the fort's old bunkers. It is the only fort on American soil that had been attacked since the revolutionary war. You can also hike to the shipwreck. It may be gone in our future due to erosion.

The park is huge with hundreds of sites. Plan half an hour for checking in and finding your spot. It is an excellent location with the beach nearby, a nice lake nearby with boat ramp. There are playgrounds for the kids. Make sure to get a map when checking in to navigate your way through the park. Some spots are wooded, some open, some have grass, some dont. Ask when making your reservation if you prefer one over the other. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Stevens State Park has been our favorite campsite through our travels. The park is well-maintained, and there are plenty of hosts on every loop to help out. The park is in the woods, so every spot is in the shade. There is plenty of room around each site, so you never feel crowded, even though there is a lot of capacity. Plenty of walking trails and places to explore. A path leads right to the Oregon Coast and beautiful beaches on the Pacific. A place not to miss! We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Astoria, and buy fresh fish & chips at The Bowpicker. They use fresh tuna. And visiting the various Forts around the area is a fascinating history lesson.

When we pulled into the park we were immediately impressed with how everything was kept and maintained. A very lovey area. But to be completely honest we sometimes dread working with State Park employees. Sometimes they are incredibly unfriendly. THIS PARK WAS DIFFERENT. The woman we met in the check-in area was absolutely wonderful. Talkative, bright and super friendly. She made us feel welcome and glad we came. She shared that her husband gave a talk down on the beach about the various shipwrecks that had happened over the years, and we attended and very much enjoyed his talk. (There is a shipwreck remnant on the beach.) Speaking of the beach, we loved that 4-wheel drive vehicles were allowed to drive right down onto the beach. The campsites were beautifully kept and well maintained. We would most definitely stay there again. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't miss the Fort Clatsop museum where Lewis and Clark wintered after arriving at their Western most destination. A replica of the original fort stands in the same place. This is a great place to come with kids and provides a terrific educational experience.

We arrived the day before the big seafood festival. Got the last site. Lucky... We skipped the festival and spent time on the beach. If you have a 4wd unit, you can drive on the beach for about 15 miles. The dogs love it. This park is normally clean, but in two different sites, we had to get trash out of the fire ring and clean up the previous dog poop. At least I know it was clean when we left. Camp staff/host should have been checking the sites.

We were limited on the sites we can access because of overall length. But adequate sites above 50'. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

Millions of places to eat and drink. Love to visit the Astoria area.
