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

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.
