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.
