“Well preserved with lots of history to read”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We really enjoyed our visit. The cashier was very friendly and helpful. We could have had a tour guide but just used the notebook we borrowed. It cost $3 per person we think. The fort was very well preserved and had a lot of historical info to read in appropriate spots. Definitely a must see place. We learned a lot.

“Interesting...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Altho it needs some fresh paint...such an interesting place to learn of St Croix history...the guides are excellent and the fort is well maintained (except for needing paint)

“The fort was ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

The fort was relatively clean and well taken care of, and was a pretty good self tour. It would have been more enjoyable if there had been more of the original (or reproductions) of the guns and other equipment that had been stationed at the fort back when it was in use

“I toured the Fort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

A National Park site with NPS rangers who knew the history and fielded questions (where was Alexander Hamilton`s mother incarcerated at the fort ?) with a history professor`s knowledge. This is definitely worth a visit as it is also quite scenic . Bring your camera and don`t miss the Weighing House across the street

“Cool and unique but nothing fancy.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Enjoyed the fort. We were right there at the end of the short boardwalk so we stopped to visit. Made for nice pictures of it and from it. We had read write ups of nice 1840's furniture but didn't find any there unless u count the beds shown.
