  • One of the better of the many Historic Forts along the NW Coast and into the Puget Sound. If you go here, be sure and cross over to WA to see Fort Columbia.  more »

  • Great place to visit in late March on a Monday. Very few people were present. Gives you an opportunity to visualize the scene and pay your respects to those who served our country. $5 to park and look around. A small investment for such a impactful POI.
  • Gorgeous- it's always cool to explore a place with some history. The plaques are useful in understanding and visualizing what the fort used to look like- and being able to explore it freely was a bonus for sure. The views from atop the fort itself were wonderful, and it seems well maintained and clean.
