This park has something for everyone. From hiking and exploring to kite flying and Nerf Wars! Fort Casey was originally built as one of three artillery installations tasked with protecting Admiralty Inlet (Puget Sound) from foreign invaders. No shots ever fired in anger but practice must've been really fun. The concrete emplacements are still here to explore and two of... More

I visited Fort Casey on a cold and windy day at the end of January. It was raining when I arrived but stopped shortly after. I loved every minute of it! Having the large guns there you get a better idea of what the Fort looked like when it was actually in use. It is smaller than its neighboring Forts... More

My husband, adult son and I got to feel like kids here. You have full access to all but the lighthouse to climb and walk through old military structures. There are trails along the water and in the woods. Even with the lighthouse closed we spent a couple hours here. The view is great. There was also a family of... More

The Ferry comes and goes, deer,eagles.geese.ducks,sea lions and wonderful people to get aquainted with. Not a lot of total hook ups, but I believe total camp sites to be 35 and tent camping included.

Amazing place to stroll around, fly kites and explore the navy base which is no longer in use. Fantastic views from the top. Great for friends family and a lone adventurer

We arranged for a tour/guide by calling the Ranger station. They directed us to one of the tour guides who met us at the Fort and turned our visit into something so very memorable. We were introduced to all the history of the fort and the lighthouse which greatly improved our visit. Well worth every minute!

Interesting old Light house, located on Whidbey Island, Washington. It is a good site to photograph if you have an interest in light houses. It is located in a State Park and there are fees for entrance and to tour the lighthouse.

Whitbey Island has a wonderful Fort which is open to the public. We climbed the ladders, checked out the big gun, wandered the top of the fort, enjoyed friendly deer and climbed to the top of the Lighthouse. The view from the top of the Fort, the walk to the Lighthouse and at the top of the Lighthouse was just... More

Fort Casey is a State Park on Whidbey Island, part of a system of fortifications built around various sites in the Pacific Northwest in the late 1800s, and continually updated until closed in 1950. All the fortifications are still in place, and examples of the huge guns are also in place. It is a wonderful, and very interesting place to... More
