My wife and I spent most of our time here viewing the fort from afar on the beaches of the park. We really enjoyed the Willow Pond Loop. It was a great, easy forest trail.

This is a great state park. I especially enjoyed the trails and the beach access. We spent a little time at the fort but the hiking was definitely the highlight.

Bicycled our way in. Only complaint is that at the entrance there is no sign posting rates for entry to the park and entry to the actual fort. Road in is scenic, tree lined and excellent to bike ride. The self guided tour of the...More
