  • Biking The Great Allegheny Trail and the C&O Tow Path. Stopped here for a picnic lunch. Nice spot for a picnic.
  • No great place to launch a kayak. Very old (war 1812) fort. Nice campground.
  • I love to go here an observe the wildlife. highly recommended
  • The grounds are quite nice. The fort itself has two buildings with many rooms open for viewing. There are paid living history actors around most days. It certainly isn't the best "museum" for that historical area but it is nice enough. We enjoy watching the musket/carbine demonstrations.
  • A hidden gem of a state park. We'll maintained and interesting.
