Wander the extensive grounds, explore the bunkers, check out the lighthouse, & admire the amazing views. You may even see deer wandering around. A great place for everyone. It can be very windy so dress appropriately. Purchase of a Discovery Pass is required ($10 per car for 1 day or $30 annual pass).

This is a great spot for a day visit. History buffs to beach lovers. The view is fabulous. It can get quite windy and cold depending in the time of year. Pack a lunch and extra clothes, a windbreaker for sure just in case and your good to go. This is a must see. The entrance fee is low.

Fun day exploring the all the gun displacements and bunkers of the old fortification overlooking Admiraltry inlet. Great area for kids to play and explore. Has good beach access and your likely to see several resident deer. Also includes a light house. They also have a campsite area along the beach.

this is a good place to see the ocean and check out the old light house and weapon batteries. but there is also a short walk thru the woods with recycle and compost info that is worth the time.

We thought this would be a nice outdoor stroll and it turned out to be a really interesting and historical park. Well worth a visit.
