Interesting piece of History
Jun 2020
Located at the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center next to the Cape Disappointment Lighthouse. Several of the old Batteries are still in fairly good shape. Interesting place to stroll through and read the historic information.

Fascinating

We loved it. We were there in the shoulder season so it wasn't crowded. The stillness and solemnity of this place was an experience. We rambled around and explored all the tucked in places. So much information.

We stumbled upon the Battery as we were returning on the trail from the lighthouse. It is worth a look!

Located under the Lewis and Clark interpretive Center Beware of handicap parking area has one lane road access. Please use turnouts and remember that uphill has right-of-way. If you are headed downhill, please back up. Just be aware and courteous

Exploring Fort Canby State Park
Aug 2018 • Couples
This battery was a success during the 1864 to 1947. They were defending the Columbia River.

We could explore the battery of this pre-war I.

They were successful and now it is a reminder from the past.

Worthwhile to see!

Photographers dream. History- fascinating details - murals from the past - decaying metal - overgrown concrete.

Interesting history

We had already visited the batteries at Ft. Stevens, Oregon, which are larger, so while part of a bigger story, this only got a brief look from us. It was closing time at the Interpretive Center and bad weather, so we mainly toured the Center. On a good day, this would be a cool place for portrait photography.

A wonderful smaller site to wander around and explore

A great fort to walk around and explore, the views around here are awesome. We spent just about an hour just looking inside the various bits and pieces of open areas and old rooms. You are quite sheltered from the wind here, and there is quite a bit of cover to get away from the rain.
