The fort is scenic and well kept. The views of the bay from inside are great. It is a small fort and the tour is self guided, wasn't much too it.

This is a great place to visit if you have the imagination to fill in the missing details. The Park Service gives only a sketchy description.

When we went, we walked in to what we thought was the entrance. There was a sign that said $3.00 per person to tour so we walked around looking for someone to pay but another person let us know that no one was working that day. (odd, since it was a Monday mid day). So we gave ourselves a tour on our own. Not a lot of literature telling you what you're looking at, but pretty cool nonetheless. My husband isn't big into historical stuff like this but he loved it. It was one of his favorite things to see on the island. The dungeon was creepy! Very well maintained and you could go in almost every part of it. Smaller than I imagined but would recommend it to anyone. We saw it for free but 3 dollars isn't so bad for it, especially since the money probably goes to its preservation.
