Panoramically perched on the hill overlooking the water, the Fort Casey lighthouse was everything I'd hoped it would be. The surrounding cannons, bunkers disguised by grass, and yes, even roaming, grazing deer made this a stop I'd do again in a heartbeat!

Lots of grass and history - with great views of the Puget Sound. Must display a state Discover Pass.

We were told about Fort Casey but didn't know anything about it (didn't look it up online or on trip advisor). Therefore we had low to no expectations. Well those were blown away! Fort Casey is super cool! The best part is you have free reign to go in or climb on anything. It's rare to have this kind of... More

We stumbled upon Ft Casey State Park one day while walking the beach trail from Pratt Reserve. WWII history buffs will enjoy this park.

Like Fort Ebey, but on a larger scale. Well maintained and there's always staff on hand either at the lighthouse or Ranger Station. A great view and picnic spot.

Loved this park. Some full service sites and some without services. Has new shower and bathroom building. Sat and watched the ferries arrive and depart. Saw a surfaced submarine being escorted out of the Sound. Went up to the old fort and found a tv show filming the season final episode for Z Nation. Lots of deer and rabbits.
