I am a fan of lighthouses in general and try to see them at every opportunity. We have been to Whidbey several times, but have not made the time to go to Fort Casey State Park. It was well worth the time. The lighthouse had docents with loads of information and a small gift shop to boot! The fort itself... More

The lighthouse was closed on the day that we toured the fort. We have toured forts on the Gulf coast and this one is in better shape than some of them. There are two big guns here dating back to the early 1900s if not the late 1800s. The place is pretty large and has an excellent view of the... More

Reading the historical information here shows an incredible history of the Fort, Lighthouse and surrounding area. A beautiful place to visit and for Lighthouse Lovers like me the lighthouse is well maintained and very accessible.

We were there around 6-7pm and were able to see the sun setting over the water, watched the ferry boats on their way, walked around the garrison and down to the beach. It was peaceful and gorgeous.

Really cool! Old bunkers, cannon, and lighthouse, all with amazing views because they were designed to protect the WA coast from Japanese invasion. The lighthouse is fun to climb up & has amazing views! Bring a kite or a sketchpad - there's a lot of wind!

Probably the most interesting of the parks / old military compounds on Whidbey. The lighthouse is wonderful and the old batteries that housed the guns are fascinating to stroll through. This place will really bring the past to life and remind you of the challenges faced by generations past. Make sure you check out the viewing stations from further up... More

We attended a wedding. The view and scenery were beautiful and very accessible for the crowd. Parking was not a problem. There were lots of folks viewing the fort, but the wedding was still intimate.

We arrived at the ferry much earlier than we had expected, so had an hour plus to kill. We saw the sign for Fort Casey and wandered up. Hesitant to pay the $10 park fee because it was late in the day, we explored first. I have been to forts before, and most are completely closed off in the dark... More

What a lovely lighthouse in this state park! It was cool to be able to take the step to the very top for a wonderful view overlooking the shore:-)
