My husband and I drive here about once a month to take our dogs and nieces on walks. The bunkers are fun and there is a lot of space to be on a nice leisurely walk . The view is real nice too. We never have camped here but they do have a nice camping area. Plus you can rent... More

Have spent a February weekend at Fort Worden for the past 16 years, as mentioned in my title a great group destination. Lots of room (Officers houses are 4 - 5 bedrooms) big dining rooms and roomy kitchens for meal preparations.

We walked the beach to the Light House. Its seemed to be deserted, to bad. Interesting history of the park with all the military housing still there.

It looks like they are turning the area into a college so check it out while you still can. There are a lot of things to do there and plenty of history to go along with it.

The parade grounds are perfect for a little game of soccer, football or volleyball or flying kites. From a film buff perspective "An Officer and a Gentleman" was filmed here. The light house is also quite nice for photos.

the grounds are great and the wild deer are so close you can almost touch them. The Castle can be rented which would be great for a family or even honeymooners.

If you enjoy some bits of history, you will love this place. Very well kept and lots of walking and investigating old bunkers along the beach front of Washington. Make sure you purchase a parking pass, which is a little bit hard to find the building that you purchase it in.

Water, wind, waves and a lighthouse. Beautiful park to visit. Take the time to walk out to the point. It was worth the stop.
