“Fun place to visit, right down the road from the beach.”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

Good place to explore and have a picnic on the rocks alongside the ocean. Just down the road is a great beach.

“Visited in off season - so could not get into Fort, but beautiful location”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Tide was in when we were there so the "beach" available to walk on was nearly non existent, but it was just pretty cool to see the Fort still standing. If you're into history, stop by if in the area during regular season and check it out.

“The Fort that Never Was”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

This fort, built during early colonization, has been forgotten historically.  A lovely little spot to tour briefly, think about the past, and maybe have a picnic lunch.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed December 8, 2011

This place is so much fun to see! Just wish it had more rooms to go into! Go to the beach while you're here, of course!!
