The gun placements were in stalled in 1910 and never used and removed in the early 1920's. Some history of our early military. Also have barracks used in WW II and a light house you can enter and climb to the top for views of Mt Baker and Rainier. Very peaceful considering what it was. located in state park so... More

We are used to visiting east coast forts, so we had a great time exploring this west coast fort. It's pretty much an explore on your own sort of place, there is very little for description or guidance. We were okay with this format - but it would be a great addition for some additional signs. This is also a... More

I have been visiting Fort Casey for more than 40 years. We use to camp every Easter, and more, and loved watching the bunnies, the ferries, the running tides, the ships and more. Great place to ride a bike or hike around. This lighthouse is my very favourite, they have a great little gift shop(or did). When we came with... More

I have visited MANY times and it never gets boring to walk around the historical place! It is also a pretty good place to throw a ball around or fly a kite. They have some picnic tables so you can eat and that is good. My only complaint is that one time I saw a man "relieve" himself inside of... More

What a surprise! My 13-year-old and 15-year-old boys loved it. We were not sure what to do one day on vacation while visiting Seattle. We decided to take the ferry to Whibley island. A great choice. My boys loved Fort Casey, the highlight of the day. We were only on Whidbey Island for a half a day and wish we... More

This is a wonderful State Park, amazing! Plentiful history of the fort, amazing, be careful and don't get lost! Tours do occur, lighthouse is beautiful, small amount of stair climbing, plenty of knowledgeable staff. Lot's of trails, hiking, nature, views, beach access, camping, retreats, can stay in the park, beautiful accommodations for any type of family, wedding, business needs!

This was a really neat place to stop in and explore. The Fort itself is very interesting; seeing how soldiers used to live and kinda eerie creepy in places. One thing that would be nice is more interactive experiences, like an on-site guide or information officer and more plaques with information. The view from here is spectacular. As well, the... More

This is such a neat little place to walk around. When you get to Fort Casey there is a gorgeous lighthouse you can also walk in. The Fort is so neat with it being old and huge. When you climb to the top part of the fort you have a stunning view of the water and Port Townsend on the... More

Fort Casey is unique in its juxtaposition of a military site with lovely views. I fell in love there fifty years ago (we were camp counselors) and alas, I could have and should have married that young lady! But even if you don't fall in love there, your senses will thank you for the experience. Puget Sound has a particular... More
