My wife and I stopped by Fort Casey a couple of times during our stay on Whidbey Island and thought it was a nice way to relax and see some interesting coastline history along the way. The grounds were immaculately kept and provided beautiful views of the water and Olympic Peninsula, while highlighting the uniqueness of the fort and the... More

New to Whidbey Island and while I was driving around one early evening after work I decide to "stumble" upon Fort Casey. I could not have have asked for a nicer day, clear out to the west where I had a gorgeous view of the Olympics. Strolling up and down the beach walking along with the driftwood was an enjoyable...

We are on our way back to Seattle and my son wanted to fly his new kite. We were told about Fort Casey Park. This is a wonderful spot that incorporates history, natural beauty, gorgeous views and a wonderful large field with enough wind for kites. A great stop for an entire day or just an hour. Evidentially it is... More

We love the campground which is right on Puget Sound and next to the ferry dock. You can watch the ferry go in and out and wave to the folks on board. It is so close you feel you can touch it. Nice to walk on the boat and visit Pt. Townsend without having to pay $100 plus dollars RT... More

We've been at Fort Casey several times over the past 15 years. It is a great spot to take kids- tons of grass for running around, and the gun placements to explore (just watch and don't fall off the edges!). Don't neglect to visit the beach as well. The park location is beautiful, and right next to the Coupeville-Port Townsend... More

the views are gorgeous. The Fort is interesting enough although I'm not much into war related sites but you should read the various plaques to get a better idea about what you're looking at. it's a huge area with beach access. While we were there the constant military airplane noise was virtually intolerable. We could hardly communicate. There are decent... More

We have been coming to Fort Casey for quite a while. The sites are close to each other and most now have power and water hook up. The campground does offer some super views of the puget sound. The Port Townsend ferry docks real close to the campground. You can walk on to the ferry and hang out in Port... More

The fort is not what is amazing about this place, though it is enjoyable, it is the long beach walks you can enjoy along the inlet. Go grab some cheese and crackers, put them in a small back pack with your favorite beverage.. and hike it. Drift wood is all over .. enjoy. The lighthouse was a great visit too..... More

The Fort Casey is in good condition and affords beautiful views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains. The beach walk between Fort Casey and Ebby's landing is beautiful and rugged. We are so fortunate to have such wonderful state parks
