  • Nice view of river, plenty of room for a little downtime and a picnic. Right off Maine route 1. Worth the stop.  more »
  • I'm torn about my rating of the fort. The fort is incredibly cool to visit. It's well worth the visit. The view is beautiful - perfect for photo ops. You can climb down to a tiny little "beach". The history is remarkable. The issue, and reason why my rating is so low is because the shear amount of dog waste. We saw a couple of locals allowing their dogs to do their free range pooping, without a clean-up in sight. It is so extreme heading to the picnic tables, that we couldn't walk two steps without having to try to miss piles (and failing). As the grass grows and hides the poop, I can't imagine how many kids are going to be sitting in/rolling in this potential hazard. I've lived in Maine my entire life and I've never seen an area with so much dog waste.
  • Very nice change from the ordinary. Wonderful views and some interesting history.
