Camping at Fort Stevens

We camped at Fort Stevens State Park for 3 nights and visited Astoria.

Fort Stevens State Park in Oregon - what a beautiful place! We got an up-close and personal tour of the old guardhouse/prison

The tank testing area

At a wildlife blind. We biked throughout the whole park on the day that we rented bikes

This section of the fort - Battery 245 - is IDENTICAL in structure to the battery at Fort Ebey

The rifle range

The wreck of the Peter Iredale

Miles and miles of beautiful windswept isolation is possible here...

We really enjoyed biking through the parkThe bikes we rented from the nearby KOA campsite

The observation tower

A living history demonstrationThe old barracks

The moat at the Parados - old civil war era earthworksWent down to the Columbia river to have our snack

No idea what this is

Mine loading building

Picnic in the grass

Getting ready to roast some marshmallowsKenny is giving Peter "points" for giving him a head massage

Beautiful views from the Astoria Tower

They sold 1$ gliders to be flown from the top - they were a big hit

We had tuna fish and chips here - interesting, but I prefer halibut

During the tram ride through downtown Astoria, we saw the old staircase from the Astoria Column
