1 | County Jail (Oregon Film Museum): Jailhouse

This is easily one of the most recognisable Goonies filming locations in Astoria. The county jail in Astoria was the jailhouse where Jake Fratelli was held until his family helped him escape. It’s possible to visit the cell where he was held and the actual jeep that was used by the Fratellis is usually parked out in front of the jailhouse.

The county jail is now home to the Oregon Film Museum which celebrates the history of film-making in Oregon. The self-guided tour of the museum is short at less than 30 minutes but visitors can see the cell where some of the Goonies scenes were actually shot.

8 | Ecola State Park

Ecola State Park is home to several Goonies filming locations that visitors will instantly recognise from the movie.

One of the best-known locations is the spot where the Fratelli’s had their hideout and where the Goonies started their treasure hunt. Known as the Lighthouse Lounge in the movie, the hideout was purpose-built for filling and taken down afterwards. Today you can visit the location of the scene where a small structure stands in place of the hideout in the movie.

The second scene is when the Goonies stop on their bikes when searching for the start of the treasure map. This scene is from along the Indian Beach trail through Ecola State Park.

  1. You can park on Duane St. Pedestrians are at least tolerated on.l 38th St. There is a box for donations. Please put some cash in it to express gratitude. This is a sacred place for some of us. Show respect lke you would in a church. My son was 7 years old when we saw this movie. His name is Michael but we didn’t call him Mikey

  2. We went and saw the house today. DO NOT DRIVE UP THE DRIVEWAY! The owners just recently let people start seeing the house again and one way that can be ruined is by ignoring the clearly stated signs. Great experience.

  3. I’m going to Astoria in July 2021 and cannot wait to visit these locations. I am MOST excited about the house now being accessible by foot!!! I will definitely leave a donation next month if I can walk up there.

  4. We visited the Goonies house and Data’s house this evening. Signs clearly say no cars but that you are welcome to walk the driveway up. Further, as mentioned there is a donation box at the house. Well worth the stop, and the owners have some awesome gardening skills!
