What more could you ask for? The lighthouse (open seasonally, check the web site) has good views from the top and good interpretive displays. The artillery pieces are interesting artifacts from previous times. There are broad expanses of lawn for kite flying or just letting children wear themselves out. You may see deer wandering around in the early morning or... More

We made it a round trip going over deception pass in the morning. we visited some relatives in oak harbor before... More

This is a great places for families. Children have the ability to run, play, climb, and fly kites. The views are incredible and you often see deer walking around.

Fort Casey is one of the military gun batteries protecting Puget Sound during the first world war. It also has a very cute lighthouse, but it was not open while we were there. The gun emplacements are quite interesting, and several of the guns are still in place. Military buffs and children would all love this place. A word of... More

I have been here three times the last month. The views of the ocean and Peninsula are amazing. The fort has several lodges from the military and barracks. There is also beautiful trails and old guns the size of plains that you can walk up and touch.

This park is located above the ferry that takes you to Port Townsend. It is a scenic, open area for walking (dogs love it - leash them). The pre WW1 huge guns and maze of concrete tunnels are interesting. You will need to have a discovery pass or buy a park pass (at a vending machine or at the park... More

More hiking and an excellent history of Naval Defenses and lighthouse keeping in the early 20th century.

Our family goes to Whidbey Is all the time and love it - we actually own some land near Ft Ebey. We went to Ft Casey on a very rainy mid-week day last summer - no one else was there, no other cars parked in the lot. I opened up the back of our car and our dog jumped out... More

We spent over two hours wandering around this old fort. Lots to see. The resident deer are not afraid of people, they let you get up very close to take pictures! Take a picnic and spend the better part of your day. You won't be disappointed.

The fort is one of three that were built in the early 1900's to provide security over the Admiralty Inlet which leads to the US Naval base at Bremerton. It is interesting to see the massive effort required to build this fort and it's disappearing cannons, and one can realize how quickly they became obsolete with the advent of armed... More
