Warrenton/Hammond

A model lighthouse sits in Lighthouse Park in Warrenton. At the end of the road is Fort Stevens, the United States’ major defense for the mouth of the Columbia from the Civil War until the end of World War II. The fort’s military purpose has ended, but the remains of the installation make a fascinating historical center. You can visit a museum and tour the old batteries on foot or in a vehicle.

Old Fort Stevens is part of Fort Stevens State Park, which has 15 yurts and 510 campsites (476 with utility hookups), more campsites than any other park on the Oregon Coast. There are sites for hikers–bikers and RVs up to 50 feet. Camping is popular here, and reservations should be made.

Enjoy miles of hiking and bicycle paths, and on the beach see the wreck of the ship Peter Iredale. The visitor information center (503-861-1031) sits at 143 S Hwy 101 at the edge of Youngs Bay Shopping Center.

The community of Hammond was named after Andrew B. Hammond, a pioneer businessman in the Pacific Northwest. Until 1991, it was a separately incorporated city, but the voters decided to dis-incorporate and Hammond has been merged into Warrenton.
