the views are gorgeous. The Fort is interesting enough although I'm not much into war related sites but you should read the various plaques to get a better idea about what you're looking at. it's a huge area with beach access. While we were there the constant military airplane noise was virtually intolerable. We could hardly communicate. There are decent... More

We have been coming to Fort Casey for quite a while. The sites are close to each other and most now have power and water hook up. The campground does offer some super views of the puget sound. The Port Townsend ferry docks real close to the campground. You can walk on to the ferry and hang out in Port... More

The fort is not what is amazing about this place, though it is enjoyable, it is the long beach walks you can enjoy along the inlet. Go grab some cheese and crackers, put them in a small back pack with your favorite beverage.. and hike it. Drift wood is all over .. enjoy. The lighthouse was a great visit too..... More

The Fort Casey is in good condition and affords beautiful views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains. The beach walk between Fort Casey and Ebby's landing is beautiful and rugged. We are so fortunate to have such wonderful state parks

Open area, clean bathrooms and a wonderful view of the Sound. Going through the concrete bunkers and getting to touch the cannons was a thrill.

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!
