Plans are being made to restore the 1911 Fort Stevens Guardhouse to its former self!
Funding consists of grants developed by the Friends Of Old Fort Stevens, fundraisers such as this Labor Day weekend’s SUMMER’S END CONCERT, and a major investment by Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
The Guardhouse will be used for museum displays, interpretation of the Fort Stevens, and provide much needed work space.
The Friends of Old Fort Stevens recently funded permanent signs for the Columbia Shore Disc Golf Course located in the Historic Area of Fort Stevens.
The 23 hole disc golf course guides players along the Columbia River and historic gun batteries. New interpretive signs are posted at each tee pad to inform visitors of the history of the land. The Friends have been happy to support this project in collaboration with Oregon State Parks!
A new disc design highlights a course favorite- Battery 245.
Disc sales in the museum gift shop help support the mission of the Friends of Old Fort Stevens.

The Fort Stevens Historic Area is now home to the Columbia Shore Disc Golf Course, an 18 hole course.
The course was designed to respectfully showcase interesting features at the historic fort while bringing in new visitors who might not have otherwise visited.
In the near future, the Friends plan on adding interpretive signs along the course to educate players about what they are seeing as they enjoy their game.
The Fort Stevens park rangers did an excellent job of creating a course that is fun for all skill levels!
The Oozlefinch is flying again at Fort Stevens!
The Friends are selling a limited remaining discraft discs with the Fort Stevens Oozlefinch logo. The Oozlefinch was the mascot of the Coast Artillery Corp and has received a warm welcome back to the fort.
