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.

Unfortunately, the lighthouse was closed the day were were there, but the area around the old fort is just gorgeous. Overlooking the inlet, you have stunning views of the water, the ferries, huge cargo ships and the mountains in the distance. We were extraordinarily lucky to be there on a clear, sunny day, and the view upon climbing on top... More

We were cycling the Olympic area and after a day of riding in the rain, coming across a kite festival was a great treat. The wind was low that day, but the design and work that had gone into the kites was amazing. Exploring the rest of the fort was an added bonus, if you have time and can wait... More

Recommend a visit to this beautiful old fort located just outside Coupeville WA. The old officers' quarters have been turned into an inn and wandering the grounds is definitely worth doing. The beautifully restored Admiralty Head Lighthouse is worth exploring as well. There is a $10 fee for one day that can be used to visit any state park on... More

We came especially to see the kite festival, but the winds were low. So after exploring the different kite stalls (one set up for kids to build their own), we went for a walk over the headland to the lighthouse. Excellent exhibition inside with knowledgable volunteers. You can climb up to the top where the light would have been and... More

Interesting historical site. Lighthouse. Military batteries you can climb up on and around. Also has 2 "disappearing guns" you can get up close to, and these are the last 2 in existence.

Fort Casey is a "Must See" when taking out of state friends or family on a tour of Washington State. I like to show visitors the three eras of forts on Whidbey Island: Whidbey Island Nave Air station in Oak Harbor, the Coupeville Block house, and Fort Casey.

We spent a night at the Ft Casey RV campground and loved it. We saw a beautiful sunset over Puget Sound and then Sunrise the following morning during our 5 min walk to the Port Townsend ferry. We had breakfast at the Bayview Restaurant and took the ferry back. The rest rooms at the park where clean and we highly... More
