Nice ocean views. Fort is just rubble. It is interesting to learn about the history of the fort from the information on site, take a quick walk around and continue on to your destination. If interested in history, worth a stop for 30 minutes or...More

There is not too much left to see, but the history is very interesting. It doesn't take too long to see everything. It is worth a stop, but I wouldn't go out of my way.

Old fortification on the coast, the outer boulder covered earth walls being all that remains. The fortification was used to secure a provisioning station for Russian - American ships trading between the American Northwest and Asia.

We stopped at this park. There is nothing there except a sign, some rocks and a restroom that need repair. We were there about three minutes.

It may be the historic site of a once interesting Fort, but now there is nothing left. Pity. A few foundation stones and a state park plaque.
