If you are in the area this is worth a visit. There is not a great deal of information re the history but the gun emplacements are in good condition and you can get a feel for the history.

It's been a awhile since we visited Fort Casey. There is so much to see and do so plan the day accordingly. Kids will have a blast here running through the various rooms in the fort. Make sure to walk over to the lighthouse. The...More

Ridiculously beautiful and well maintained, enormous facility. What started as just killing time before we could check into a b&b turned into one of the highlights of a weeklong trip. The grassy meadows, wildflowers, headlands, bunnies, trails to driftwood-strewn beaches alone are worth your $10...More

Stayed one night each for the past two weeks, depending on weather. Wanted to beat the summer crowd. The campground is great to watch the Port Townsend Ferry traffic and shipping lane as well as birds, rabbits and deer. We even saw a submarine being...More

Excellent display of late 1800s/early 1900s artillery emplacements that were essentially obsolete by the end of WWI.

Fort Casey is a great place for a family outing. There are picnic tables, large fields for frisbee or flying kites, beaches to walk on, and of course the old fort with lots of twisty passages to explore.

Large WA State Park with access to a typical rocky NW beach - great for beachcombing. The remnants of Fort Casey are available for exploration - great for kids to wander through; however, be mindful of safety rules. The lighthouse was a great stop for...More

We have been camping at Fort Casey for 40 years. We find it an awesome place to go relax and just watch the ferry boat come and go. The required campfire makes it so much better.
