Nice park and plenty to see. There is a fee for parking, $10/day/car or $30/year/car. Very clean park and plenty of places to park.

We live on Whidbey Island, and this is one of our favorite places to go. Beautiful expansive views of Admiralty Inlet, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Olympic and Cascade mountains, etc. Lots of area and trails to walk on (including along the beach), the lighthouse, the gun battery, fishing, and lots of wildlife (seabirds, sea lions, harbor porpoises, etc.)....

Drive around the deer and rabbits. You have found a wonderful light house near the ferry to Port Townsend. Well kept lighthouse. Well kept grounds. Some camping. The embatlements are still in place to be seen where the gun batteries were. Don't forget to pay for day pass or even better get yearly pass and visit more frequently.

Found this park accidentally, glad we stopped. The lighthouse was closed, only open on weekends. Deer munching on grass, must be used to people. Enjoyed reading about history on the big guns. Park bench available to rest and see natural beauty!

I had no idea this was even here. This is a great state park. lots of open areas to explore. The gun batteries are fun to climb on and look around. Then there is the beach for a walk sunset walk. We will be back again soon.

What's not to like? it's all there - shoreline, wheeling seagulls, old gun placements (with history), great camping on the beach, ocean fishing for those who want, ferry to Port Townsend. Old military housing now used for conference center (friends tell me it's a great place for that). And great open space for family activities. Well worth a visit.

I could not get over how great the view was from the Lighthouse. The docents were also the best I have seen in a long time. I hope more people come and visit the lighthouse and the Park.

Great park and some of the guns are still in place, unlike Fort Stevens and some of the other forts of this era.! A lighthouse is also on site.
