We took the ferry from PT to spend a few hours exploring. I stayed on the beach, but my husband said the bunkers were more maintained than fort worden in PT, and s couple of the old heavy guns are there for viewing. The beach was nice and quiet, I did some beach combing while my kids played in the... More

This fort is one of the triangle of fire that was built to prevent the British from gaining access to Puget Sound and the naval establishments that were located there. I believe that the guns/rifles were later removed to be melted down and used to produce other arms during later wars. The original guns were only fired in practice and... More

You must have a $10/day pass or just pay $30 and you can visit every park for an entire year. We were here for 10 days and definitely got our $30 worth between Deception Pass, Ebey and this park. We were visiting this park because we thought it would be fun to explore it with our granddaughter who is 8.... More

Wow, a part of our military history you don't hear in history books or on the History channel. We had to defend our coastal waterways and land as a young nation and this is a great example of how we did that. The technology of the retracting canons is amazing for that time period.

Interesting park set on bluff overlooking bay. Need a Discovery Pass or a $10 per day pass which can be paid in the park via the kiosks.

There are lots to do in this state park. Download the map from the web before going as it will help you plan your visit. The fort area is wonderfully restored and relatively easy to explore. Parking is just a short walk away. In addition to the fort, there is a restored lighthouse. Great photo opportunity there and by the... More

I am a photographer and Ft. Casey delivered big time with lot's of bird action including multiple Bald Eagles. The vistas of the straits are wonderful and it is not overcrowded. It is a great place to go for a quick weekend get away.

This Washington State park is an interesting pre-WW I fort you can tour, but the beauty comes in the view and the beautifully restored lighthouse. From the top of the fort on a clear day, you can see Mt. Rainier to the south and the Olympic Peninsula. See the Ferry come and go across to Port Townsend. Easy access for... More

I love going to old forts, especially ones that you can climb around on and explore and this was a good one. Lots of history and wonderful views.
