Fort Stevens Campground

Stars: 4 out of 5

FORT STEVENS STATE RECREATION AREA: GPS 46.18422, -123.95682

 

This one ranks fairly high because the campground had lots of trees, the pull-throughs were easy to navigate, it is near some cool towns (Astoria, Seaside, etc.), it had some nice hikes (a lake, the beach, the fort, etc.).

The campground had showers and nice restrooms.

I didn't take any pics of our specific site, so I'm posting this one from the walk we did around the lake. It's an easy 2-mile hike on a narrow trail. We also did hikes to the fort, the shipwreck, the beach, and some of the other paths along the campground.

There is a KOA across the street that has laundry, which was a plus, too.
