Great place to take your family

Fly a kite/see and play in the bunkers or visit the lighthouse. They have a great staff and crew that take great pride in keeping the historical nature of the park.

On New Years day our son suggested going to the park to see the Fort. Being a history teacher he wanted to see the Fort the grounds and the guns. Well it was bitter cold but beautiful. The view of the ocean on the clear sunny cold crisp day was one we will not forget. We walked with deer a... More

One of three forts for the protection back during the war of the Straits of Juan de Fuca. Barracks, bunks, light house, cannons, campground and Fort Casey inn stay in old houses.

We had visitors in from Minnesota and decided to take them to Fort Casey. Unfortunately it was a cool (36 F) rainy day. The fort itself was very interesting and since the children had never seen the ocean the fact it was on the beach was a plus. They had a great time collecting shells and sand in jars for... More

It was a cold and blustery day, probably a gale force wind, but I was determined to see the 10" disappearing guns mounted on Battery Worth. These are vintage Spanish American war weapons and two of the few remaining in the world. The fortifications that are part of the Endicott System devised in 1885 are some of the most extensive...

We came to Fort Casey State Park with no expectations but were immediately blown away by the panoramic views this park has to offer. There are amazing views of Olympic National Park, and Puget Sound. There are also historical gun barracks, as well as a lighthouse. Coming on a sunny day is a must, in order to enjoy the views.... More

Nice historical visit--the guns are big, the barracks intact, and a glorious lighthouse. Very windy the day we were here, but hey, nothing like a Pacific Northwest storm to complement a vacation.

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
