We attended a wedding. The view and scenery were beautiful and very accessible for the crowd. Parking was not a problem. There were lots of folks viewing the fort, but the wedding was still intimate.

We arrived at the ferry much earlier than we had expected, so had an hour plus to kill. We saw the sign for Fort Casey and wandered up. Hesitant to pay the $10 park fee because it was late in the day, we explored first. I have been to forts before, and most are completely closed off in the dark... More

What a lovely lighthouse in this state park! It was cool to be able to take the step to the very top for a wonderful view overlooking the shore:-)

Visited on the Fourth of July week and the park was not busy and very well kept and beautiful. Many places to stop and take pictures, hike and enjoy nature.

Spent two wonderful days camped here with our fifth wheel. We were in site 14 which has a wonderful ocean side view. This site is not serviced, but there are sites in the campground that have power and water, however they did not have the ocean side view that we had. The site is large, but not very private, but...

With history and scenery all in the same place, it doesn't get much better than this. One can easily spend all day just exploring the fort never mind the beaches, trails, and lighthouse. Like some reviewers have stated: bring walking shoes, and, I would also recommend a flashlight for exploration of the spooky gun emplacements.

Wonderful views of the water and looking across to the Olympic Peninsula., excellent easy walking trails. A Washington Discovery pass is needed and available at the entrance.

Yes, the conference center sign and the row of buildings do little to entice one’s curiosity but after a short drive towards the water you will come upon the remains of a coastal artillery fort. This military post, built in the late 1800’s to protect the entrance to Puget Sound, was a Homeland Security original! Walking the grounds you will... More

Good side trip to see the old gun emplacements, and light house. Bring comfortable shoe as it could be a long walk, if you choose. If you like military history, you'll enjoy the visit.
