As with any state park, you must have a State Park pass, which is $10 USD. There is an automated machine in the parking area which makes this nice and easy, and then the pass is good for the entire day at any State park.

Try to catch one of the walking tours. I have been there before but learned so much more this time about the cannons and the shells they shot. Also tour goes into rooms that are normally kept locked. Views are awesome.

Great place to visit and look at housing for artillery & dismantled cannons guns. Protecting the harbor back in the day! A guided tour would hsve been nicer that a few signs.

Nothing is better than walking around Whidbey Island and taking in how gorgeous it is here. Fort Casey has always been beautiful every time we've been. We take out of town guests here when they visit. It is a must for anyone to see. Fort Casey is set woth views of the Admiralty Inlet and the Strait of Juan De... More

One of the 3 forts that provided triangulated fire across Puget Sound should an attack have occurred during WWII. History buffs, great kite flying (strong winds), awesome views and a lighthouse. All within walking distance.

We were there when the visitor center wasn't open, so we didn't get the full effect. But the lighthouse was beautiful and the gun emplacements were fun to climb around on and explore! This is a good place to come if you plan on being a bit early for the ferry. The ferry is just half a mile away. I... More

Just lovely! Well done displays and historical documents. Wild life is everywhere. We looked up to catch a bald eagle flying right over our heads and as we left the parking lot, a fawn stepped out of the edge of the woods. So peaceful. Just a great mix of so many elements. A super experience. Worth the drive off the... More

This is a good park for those who like history more than nature but nice in that you get a mix of both. The main attractions are Fort Casey and Admiralty Head Lighthouse and you can walk up and explore both up close. There are some small trails. Watch when you do come though as the park is near the...
