WELCOME to Netul Landing

Netul Landing - BEST Places to PicnicTo reach the wooded site that would become Fort Clatsop, the Corps paddled up the Netul River past lush riverbanks and tall evergreens teaming with wildlife, such as playful river otters and majestic bald eagles.

Now the river is named after Lewis and Clark, but Netul Landing pays homage to the former name and is an excellent place to launch your kayak or canoe for a paddle trip. Bring your non-motorized boat or sign up for a guided trip through Columbia River Kayaking (360) 795-0895.

The launch is part of the Lewis and Clark Columbia River Water Trail, a 146-mile stretch of water that follows the explorers' route on the Lower Columbia River from Bonneville Dam to the Pacific Ocean, near Ilwaco, Wash.

Netul Landing also marks one end of the new Lewis and Clark River Trail. The Lewis and Clark River Trail is a gentle, 1.5-mile meander along the river, taking in many of the same sights that the expedition members did. 

You can park your car in the nearby parking areas and walk to the Visitor Center at Fort Clatsop to continue your own journey into local history, or connect up with the Fort to Sea trail and trace the Corps� trip to Sunset Beach.

Netul Landing also offers a life-sized bronze statue of Sacagawea, the Shoshone woman who accompanied the Corps to the Pacific Ocean.

IF YOU GO: From Astoria, head south on U.S. Highway 101 and follow the signs to Fort Clatsop. Drive 1.5 miles past the entrance to the fort to Netul Landing. From Seaside, head north on U.S. 101 and follow the signs. For more Information, call Lewis and Clark National Park, (503) 861-2471. There is no fee to use the trail or landing. Restrooms are available.

During the peak summer months Netul Landing serves as the parking lot for a visit to Fort Clatsop. Shuttles from Netul Landing to Fort Clatsop leave every 15 minutes all summer. While a visit to Netul Landing is free the entrance fee for Fort Clatsop and the visitor center is $5.00 for adults, $2.00 for those 4 through 16 years of age, and free for children 3 years old and younger.
