The only national park style property in the Vancouver and Portland metropolitan area, Fort Vancouver National Site comprises a series of historically educational attractions within the landscaped grounds.
The extensive Fort Vancouver is almost a whole village in authentic repair with buildings such as the blacksmith's, the jail, the bakehouse and the expanding bastion.
The Vancouver Land Bridge is ideal for push and wheel chair users. Its 3,800-foot paved trail begins southwest of Fort Vancouver, threads past the fort’s orchard and Village, over SR-14, through Old Apple Tree Park and connects to the popular Columbia River Renaissance Waterfront Trail.
The Officers' Row and Pearson Air Museum sites provide architectural and aviation perspective to the era.
Fort Vancouver National Site is located in the heart of Vancouver, Washington. The 366-acre historic campus is situated next to downtown Vancouver on the picturesque Columbia River, just eight miles from downtown Portland.Get directions
