The Happy Place Diaries

A Happy Life starts with a Happy Place

Ft. Stevens State Park is on the Oregon Coast between Seaside and Astoria in a little fishing town called Warrenton.  Ft. Stevens was an active Army Coastal Artillery battery dating back to the Civil War.  It was very active during the Second World War, preparing for a possible Japanese invasion or attack.
Ft. Stevens State Park Campground is one of Oregons largest State Parks and offers an amazing beach complete with the a historic ship wreck.  The Peter Iredale ran aground in 1906 and still sits today on the beach at the State Park.
The campground itself has 174 full hook up sites.  It is nestled in woods between the beach and highway 101.  Beautiful hiking and biking trails as well as close to shopping and restaurants.  Ft. Stevens State Park is a great place to visit and camp.  It is only a 2 hour drive out of Portland and is open all year.
We spent the Veterans Day weekend out at Ft. Stevens a few weeks ago with family and friends and had a wonderful time.
We had a pull through site which makes it real nice to set up at night.
Ft. Stevens is one of our favorite parks to stay at, close, lots to do, and always a great time when camping with great people!
