“Fort Abercrombie State Park”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is such a magical park. Beautiful moss covered trees, good jogging/walking trails, right down to the ocean. I've heard it's an excellent place to watch whales, but as they had already left for Hawaii, and I was going there also, I wasn't too disappointed. This park does not disappoint, even without the whales

“Great for tide pooling!”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Go during low tide to see the local sea life. We took a hike with a ranger on a Saturday morning with our kids and had a blast searching for sea anenomies, hermit crabs, and fish. Just bring your rain gear!

From historic gun placements to scenic views, I found this park to be an enjoyable day visit. Great views of the coastline coupled with a nice hike made for a good day.
