Such a beautiful setting for wildlife viewing, picnicking, and weddings! The lighthouse and grounds are well-maintained and the overlook gives you a beautiful backdrop for photographers. I'll be going back often.

When we reached there, the first thing we saw was the vast open land with military instalments on one side and soon we saw the lighthouse. The fort has lot of alcoves and many levels to climb up and down the iron ladders and concrete stairs! The two guns are big and facing the sea. One of them is elevated... More

Some of the best views of Northern area of Puget Sound. Can watch the Cruise ships go by in the evening on the right days. The fort is fun to explore, BRING A FLASHLIGHT, you will need it. Lots of little alcoves to get in and out of, and multiple levels to explore. Lighthouse is nice and well cared for.... More

I am a fan of lighthouses in general and try to see them at every opportunity. We have been to Whidbey several times, but have not made the time to go to Fort Casey State Park. It was well worth the time. The lighthouse had docents with loads of information and a small gift shop to boot! The fort itself... More

The lighthouse was closed on the day that we toured the fort. We have toured forts on the Gulf coast and this one is in better shape than some of them. There are two big guns here dating back to the early 1900s if not the late 1800s. The place is pretty large and has an excellent view of the... More

Reading the historical information here shows an incredible history of the Fort, Lighthouse and surrounding area. A beautiful place to visit and for Lighthouse Lovers like me the lighthouse is well maintained and very accessible.

We were there around 6-7pm and were able to see the sun setting over the water, watched the ferry boats on their way, walked around the garrison and down to the beach. It was peaceful and gorgeous.

Really cool! Old bunkers, cannon, and lighthouse, all with amazing views because they were designed to protect the WA coast from Japanese invasion. The lighthouse is fun to climb up & has amazing views! Bring a kite or a sketchpad - there's a lot of wind!

Probably the most interesting of the parks / old military compounds on Whidbey. The lighthouse is wonderful and the old batteries that housed the guns are fascinating to stroll through. This place will really bring the past to life and remind you of the challenges faced by generations past. Make sure you check out the viewing stations from further up... More
