Fun stop

Such a fun place to see if you're into history! The fort is actually pretty neat, no frills, just the fort. But it has nice views and is pretty self explanatory.

We have been here numerous times over the past ten years and always see or experience something new. Today it was dolphins frolicking off the jetty...last spring it was bald eagles in the downshift courting or confronting......

Fort Cinch is well kept and easy to walk around. The history is very interesting. There are folks dressed as soldiers and they will answer any questions. We did not see any reenactments that day, but they do have those also. There is also plenty of hiking and a wonderful museum.

This was just such a nice surprise! Loved the living history weekends, especially at night. Actors/volunteers were well-informed and the presentations were entertaining

Great history very interesting. Only $2.00 pp to get in. Would of been more interesting if we could of seen how it functions with the volunteers dressed and working as if it was 1864.

Fun place to visit before hitting the beach. Short and sweet. I read that on some nights they do a candlelight tour.

Great park to go fishing, hang out on the beach, hike or bike the trails, view the marshes, bird watch and maybe even spot a few deer on the beach. Just the drive through the park is beautiful through the canopy. Both camp grounds, river side and beach side, have great bath houses and nice camp spots.

We love this beach as there is always room to spread out. Perhaps only about 10% as crowded as a typical public beach. No lifeguard. Amenities include changing rooms/lavatories. Admittance to the park is $6 for the carload. Perhaps more for more that two people in the car. Pack a lunch and enjoy the solitude.

I love history and this place is a must see. Lot of hands on and up close views. Park rangers dressed in period uniform are on hand to answer any questions. Very impressive.
