Fort Casey is a place I've enjoyed most of my life. Located on central Whidbey Island, northwest of Seattle, visitors get to experience the Fort (one of three built to protect Puget Sound) and its massive guns and concrete structures, a deactivated lighthouse and a panoramic view of Admiralty Inlet including the Cascade Mountains, Mt. Baker, Mt. Rainier, the majestic... More

Nice quiet park with fantastic views. The remains of the old guln emplacements are interesting, there is a lighthouse to visit and it seems like there are always deer eating on the lawns. We go every time we can.

A walk around unexpected history. The gun emplacements are well preserved and accessible. Well worth a visit and be reminded of those who served and protected our country.

A great place to visit if you have any interest in big coastal artillery forts. There is a couple of actual cannons mounted there that escaped the scrap heap. The gun emplacements, tunnels and open fields are a fun place for kids to run around and burn some energy. The museum in the lighthouse is quite interesting. It is well... More

The fort is an interesting place to explore. An amazing beach with lots of rocks and driftwood! Lots of boat and ferry traffic to watch.

Fort Casey is one of three forts that were used to guard the Admiralty Inlet into Puget Sound. It and Fort Flagler and Fort Worden were built to provide a "that point. The fort had huge 10-inch guns that were on disappearing carriages that lowered the guns out of sight after they fired. At the fort you can see how... More

Family fun exploring the historic barracks and scenic grounds. Huge guns weighing 125 tons each! Great hands on experience!

It's been many years since I was there, but I must say it was an awesome part of an already awesome summer road trip. We loved exploring all the concrete rooms, running around to the different levels and lookouts, and actually envisioning the Fort being used in war times. Wished we brought flashlights as there are some dark, dungeon-like areas... More

I came into the park by car and immediately had to brake for 2 deer wandering around as if they didn't care I was there. The lighthouse was easily accessible for me; The fort was not. The parking lot was a good 100 yards from the attraction and I would have had to cross that grassy, uneven terrain. I probably... More

We arrived late in the day and it was very windy and cold. It was great to get out and see the sights this area has to offer. Amazing! There was a deer that arrived on the grounds which seemed unaffected by the people. Posed for pictures while enjoying the lush green grass! Definitely worthwhile for a few hours.
