  • Exceptional staff who made history come alive! The tour guide's historical knowledge about the fort and it's engineering was awesome. The young people who fired the cannons and muskets took their roles so seriously that I felt transported back in time to 1812. All this done while in wool uniforms of the time period during the hot August heat. Well done! This was an incredible experience that I will remember. Well done! Very professional. Thank you!
  • I've only ever been here for music festivals but it's a great venue. It's large enough that lots of people can enjoy the show without it being too large. I love cooking here even though the commute there isn't fun.
  • This site is so very special. We need to keep our heritage alive and showcase the way things were for the next generation. Just needs more budget for advertising to get people there to see the history, not just special events.
  • Very cool place. Nice things to see. I would only go once though. It does get Boeing after 30 min there
  • Historic. But too many mosquitos
