Chinook Washington
Lewis & Clark Trail
Lewis and Clark Campsite State Park, "Station Camp," is 2 mi. south of Chinook, on US HWY 101. Right image, across HWY 101, looking south toward Astoria and the Expedition's future destination. Clark's map, above, shows major geographical features visited by Corps members (names added). Captain Lewis's group surveyed the area November 14-17. Captain Clark led an excursion November 18-20, 1805 (see next page). By the 22nd, they had seen no white men or ships. The stormy weather returned and the Captains began planning for a permanent winter camp.
