“Real History”

Fort Griswold Battlefield State Park
Ranked #5 of 25 things to do in Groton
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 13, 2012

If you want to see what a pre-revolutionary era fort looks like, this is the place to come. The earthworks are much like they would have been two hundred years ago. The various tunnels are fun to crawl or walk through, and the Spanish-American war gun from Santiago was quite a piece of history. The only major disadvantage was the fact that portopotties had been put in and ruined the view of some parts of the park. Still, a recommended visit overall.

It was interesting to see this historic fort. However, there were a line of port a potties located directly in the middle of the fort. That kind of ruined any photos one might want to take.

this place is pretty cool. the climb to the top of the obelisk is tiring, but worth the view. the fort is nice too. bring a date or your wife or hubby, and have a picnic. the museum is cool too! it has some belongings of George Washington too!

Found this place while geocaching and stayed for an hour. Wandered inside the fort, through the tunnel and into the trenches. Up to the museum for a bit, climbed the monument... and chatted with the rangers. It was a really nice way to spend part of the afternoon, and a nice view of the harbor.

This was not a very exciting site to visit but was more of a park and was very peaceful. This would be a great place to go eat a picnic lunch after a visit to Submarine Museum
