Lewis and Clark Historic Marker at Steamboat Landing

One week into the long journey home in April 1806, The Lewis and Clark Expedition were warned by the Native people that spring salmon had not yet returned so food was scarce traveling east. With that news, they decided to establish a provisional camp at this location along the shore of the Columbia River. They hunted elk, bear and deer and dried the meat that would last them until they arrived at the Nez Perce village in present-day Idaho.
