My husband and I rented a car during our cruise port time and headed right to the fort first. There was misty rain but lovely. We hiked the Wildflower Trail first and saw a few bunkers left over from WW11. Nancy, the forest ranger was very informative and gave us some suggestions. We did tour the museum which cost only...

It is right on the water. There are cliffs and scenic overlooks and lakes and all manner of paths. Some of the paths are even stroller friendly. There are plenty of outhouses too. Go once or go everyday of your time in Kodiak. Lots of locals use it too.

486-6339 - Call for info. Great place to get out and hike and see some of the WWII bunkers and buildings that are still standing. Great to walk and hike, make it a quick hike or a longer one. Great views from Miller Point for whales and puffins!

This is a very nicely-laid-out park, with lots of room to hike without the bother of vehicles. The campsites seem very sweet, though I visited in January and would not have wanted to pitch a tent then. The promontory with the giant artillery mechanisms is arresting. You can imagine the thoughts of the men and women stationed here in WWII,... More

enjoyed seeing the WWII generator station and what was left of the gun. Seeing the moss trees up close. Picking salmon berries and trying them.

This state park is a gem. Miles of great trails for hiking, a nice stocked lake, fabulous ocean views from countless scenic overlooks, good beach access, historic WW2 bunkers, and camping. Old growth forests draped with moss give Fort Abercrombie a unique atmosphere. Don't miss this place if you visit Kodiak.

Some of the best views of the island. I enjoyed walking along their trails and seeing the remnants of the WWII fort. They could use a better mapping system but getting lost was half the fun. If you cannot handle being lost, I suggest you download their online maps because the maps at the park are useless. Overall I had... More
