Despite the cold windy day in December, we wanted to get out and about. Fort Casey is a great place to learn about a military installation. It was interesting to see the layout and they have the last examples of that kind of artillery left...More

This is a beautiful, historical park with lots of space to climb around on the fort. They are currently restoring some of the areas and what they have done so far looks great! There's a long set of steps down to the beach where you...More

The fort is well preserved and the guides are very knowledgeable. Kids of all ages will have a great time wandering around the tunnels and climbing up and down the levels. The lighthouse up the hill is a nice view into the past.

Washington State has changed this park (and probably many others) to reservations year round this year. Did not know in time so we were only able to get sites without hook ups. Also the hook up sites (electric & water) have the nicest view sites...More

Such a fun and interesting spot. My son climb every ladder, went in every room and loved every minute of exploring the fort. I highly recommend taking a few hours to explore.

Quiet campsite, some sites with hookups. View of Puget Sound ship traffic. Great Fort to explore! Get in early, only 22 sites.

The park has several areas. In the area we were in, we were able to do a self-guided tour of the fort itself. Also, the lighthouse is open for visitation. There are hiking trails, including hiking along the beach. There is a... More

7 Days on Whidbey with 2 kids in August - what to do? (4 Replies)
Hello! We'll be traveling to Whidbey with our two kids (7 and almost 1) at the end of July/beginning of August. We're staying outside of Langley, but would love to take adventures throughout the island and even venture to some of the San Juans if there's time. We like a mix of relaxing and sight seeing and fun for the kiddos...a good mix of local and tourist fare. I'd love any recommendations on must-do's, must-see's, or must-eat-at's...anything really, especially stuff that families would...More

On the following post, a website and more information should help answer your questions; if not, please post again. There are several state parks on WI, all beautiful. Deception Pass State Park, included, but especially striking is the bridge. Bowman Bay, two entrances, scenic picnic areas, at low tide, tide pools. I assume you know to take the Anacortes ferry to the islands. I'd take your car, you'll need it to sight see. San Juan Island might be the most interesting with the kids...More

day trip itinerary (8 Replies)
Hi, We are planning a daytrip to Whidbey Island from Lynnwood on a Sunday in August. Taking a ferry from Mukilteo to Clinton. I'm interested in these stops: Fort Casey State Park, Ebey's Landing Historical Reserve, town of Coupville, and Deception Pass State Park. Is this doable in one day? Any suggestion is welcome.

Easily doable. Don't forget Langley. Whidbey Island (Great day or more getaway that is iconic of the Pacific NW, with key websites.) tripadvisor.com/Travel-g58824-s2/Whidbey-Isl… Sunday afternoon ferry might be busy; I assume you'll work from south to north, then east on 20 to the freeway.

Fort Casey Closed? (8 Replies)
So we are heading to Whidbey Island in less then a week and was noticing on the Fort Casey State Park site that it is closed due to snow and falled trees. Does anyone know more info on this? Is the entire park closed or just the camping area? Any news on to when it will reopen? Thanks

Yeah, that's kinda weird. Wouldn't hurt to give them a call and ask.
