What's not to like? it's all there - shoreline, wheeling seagulls, old gun placements (with history), great camping on the beach, ocean fishing for those who want, ferry to Port Townsend. Old military housing now used for conference center (friends tell me it's a great place for that). And great open space for family activities. Well worth a visit.

I could not get over how great the view was from the Lighthouse. The docents were also the best I have seen in a long time. I hope more people come and visit the lighthouse and the Park.

Great park and some of the guns are still in place, unlike Fort Stevens and some of the other forts of this era.! A lighthouse is also on site.

I love stopping by Fort Casey when I am on Whidbey. Always reminds me of a camp trip we did there with a school program when I was young. Great views, neat history, spooky empty bunkers... love it!

I have visited this wonderful place since I was a kid. The best about it is that is makes one feel like a kid going back. Every time. Without fail. There are WWI era concrete bunkers with disappearing gun emplacements. From the top you can see a commanding view of the "ring of fire" - a straight that is flanked... More

We really enjoyed Fort Casey. We took so many pictures of the beautiful view and lighthouse. The lighthouse was especially lovely and we spent much time there soaking up the atmosphere and history that was very well presented. Wished we would have had a picnic because it was hard to leave all that beauty behind.

The views are wonderful and hiking around the park is great. Some of the camping sites are close to each other. You could camp here and walk onto the ferry to Port Townsend.

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.
