Fort Stevens State Park
Fort Stevens was the primary military defense installation in the three-fort harbor defense system at the mouth of the Columbia River. After WWII the fort was abandoned by the US military and has since become a 3,700 acre park that offers exploration of history, nature, and recreational opportunities such as camping, beach combing, freshwater lake swimming, trails, wildlife viewing, historical shipwreck, fishing, and historic military museum. Tours and battle reenactments are available in the summer.
Fort Stevens State Park is located in
Hammond off of Highway 101 just 10
