This 4,300-acre park has everything from Civil War history to disc golf along a beautiful riverside.

Fort Stevens State Park is a recreational park settled on a peninsula in the very northwest corner of Oregon. If you are a history buff who also loves to spend ample time in the great outdoors, you should definitely make a stop at Fort Stevens. Fort Stevens was built in 1865 to guard the coast of the Columbia River from Confederate boats during the Civil War and is the only fort from the Civil War still standing on the west coast. You can typically take guided tours of the fort and see the authentic artillery used back in the day. The park also is the home to what is left from the Peter Iredale Shipwreck, which occurred in 1906.  

Aside from all of the history embedded at Fort Stevens, there are plenty of recreational activities for guests to enjoy. Numerous campsites and picnic facilities can be found throughout the entire park. If you enjoy the sport of disc golf, there is a 9-hole course along the Columbia River shoreline. Biking trails and hiking trails also wind around the grounds of the state park. The Coffenbury Lake Trail is a doable 2.4-mile hike that will guide you around the peaceful lake and through sizeable spruce and cedar trees. Fort Stevens State Park is the perfect destination if you want a slice of American history while being able to enjoy lovely Oregon nature.
