Enjoyable time going through the fort. Many people like to fly kites. Always seems to have a brisk wind here. Tried to eat at the picnic tables but too many bees around forced us to have our picnic in the car.

Great place to visit. Gun emplacements and plenty of trails the hike. Spent a good hour exploring the gun batteries. There is an adjacent lighthouse is the history of the fort and there are stunning views from the top of the lighthouse Tower.

This is a must see when on Whidbey island! The lighthouse/ state park is next to the ferry, so it's easy to do either when you first get off the Port Townsend ferry. Just hang a left when you get off the ferry and you'll see the state park sign about half a mile or so on hwy 20 on... More

There's a little something for everyone at Fort Casey. Love the little lighthouse, the cannons and bunkers. The views, especially on a sunny day are magnificent! It was sunny and warm and there were several people flying kites. There were two deer very nearby the kites grazing. There are picnic tables near the entrance. We previously visited on a rainy...

What a great place to watch the sun set. There are two HUGE cannons...be sure to walk a little further to see the second one. Read the history of these guns in the book store at Coupeville. Time your visit for their huge August art festival.

This park is located at the mouth of Puget Sound and contains an old fort intended to protect the waterway. The main parking area is at one side of a large open field behind the bluff hiding the fort from views from the water. The cement bunkers have rooms and hallways and large wells for the gun emplacements. Two of... More

Unique and interesting place to visit. Walking around and under the canon installations was awesome. Great place to fly a kite, too!

We had an hour to kill before our breakfast reservations in Coupeville so we drove over and explored the park. Huge bunkers with cannons and a short walk to the lighthouse. Great views and large grassy fields for the dog to play. You will need a pass which si $10/day or buy a Discovery Pass for $30.
