5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Love the Fort, we take it in on every visit. And the Tea room over looking the lake is a great place for lunch!

“Amazingly preserved historical site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We braved low temperatures and blustery conditions to tour this fort, and it was well worth the effort. The buildings and artifacts are in amazing condition; it's obvious that a lot of pride goes into its preservation. A young uniformed "soldier" gave a brief tour and he and another "soldier" demonstrated rifle and cannon firing. It would be easy to spend several hours here in friendlier weather.

“Worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

Not only was the Fort interesting, but the views from the terraces were awesome. Visiting in October, we were given the gift of seeing Mother Nature at her best with a brilliant show of colors. The reenactments were very well done.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

There is a lot to see there. We spend over 2 hours exploring the Fort. It was interesting to see the rifle shooting and the canon being shot.

“Muskets Firing, Canons Firing, History Comes Alive at Fort Mackinac”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Make sure you take your kids and grandchildren to this wonderful fort. As a former school teacher, I can tell you that kids of all ages will love it. The actors are dressed in full costume, they fire the muskets and canons and make history come alive! I watched the faces of the children who where there, and they were loving it! The actors
