Fort Columbia Historical State Park is a 593-acre day-use historical park located at the Chinook Point National Historic Landmark and along 6,400-feet of freshwater shoreline on the Columbia River. Within the park are original U.S. Army Coastal Artillery fort buildings and batteries, active from 1896 to 1947. This area was also home to the Chinook Indian Nation and their famed Chief Comcomly, and explored by Robert Gray and the Lewis and Clark expedition.

Fort Columbia is one of the few intact coastal defense sites in the U.S. and features historic fort buildings and batteries. The park provides beautiful views of the Columbia River estuary. An interpretive center, observation station, historic officer’s house, and 5-miles of hiking trails through mature forest are additional features of this park. Wildlife viewing and picnicking are also popular activities. Two of the historic buildings are available for vacation rental.
