The view from the park would not quit. I just wish that there was someone there to talk about the history of the place.

Fort Ebey has the scenery as the other fort state parks in the area (Casey, Worden, and Flagler), but it has a lot less fort to it. It is still a great place to get away and have some fun. There are plenty of trails to explore and the fort is fun too. The main trail is the Bluff trail... More

The best part of Fort Ebey is that is on a high bluff that overlooks the Puget Sound. There's a long trail that goes along the top of the ridge that is a joy to hike on. The camping facilities at the park are great. There's a large group camp site on the southern end of the park. Beach access... More

This is a wonderful, historic park right on the water. It has great hiking trails, water front walks and beautiful views.

Loved the sights, we stayed in an RV at the State Park. Very nice, clean park. My only complaint would be how dark it is. The sites have very little sunlight as they are in a very wooded area. But overall, beautiful park and wonderful hiking trails!

Don't expect to see the same kind of military history at this site. Fort Casey is much more interesting. However, Ebey battery and beach do provide a nice perspective out to the open water of the Pacific. We didn't hike many of the trails, but it looks like a great place to take the bikes some other time.

With 5 kids and 8 adults, we had a big group to keep busy, and Fort Ebey was perfect! Suggest you try for a sunny day to enjoy the GORGEOUS views and fun beach. Bald eagles flying all around. The kids and adults loved the rocks, kelp and tide at the beach. Little ones cannot get to the water due... More

This is such a beautiful place. We found a table high on the bluff with panoramic views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The battery is fun to explore, and there are trails along the bluff and down by the water. Even when other people are nearby this is a peaceful place.

The parks are all worth stopping at. Very informative on the history of Fort Ebey. We were with friends and drove through it. Would go back again.

If you don't have time for a long hike on Whidbey, don't miss the chance to at least see the gorgeous scenery from the bluff trail at Fort Ebey State Park. Instead of starting down below in the prairie at Ebey's Landing Reserve, drive a little further up Hwy 20 to the state park entrance (north of the reserve). Follow... More
