  • I rode the GAP and C&O Canal trails this spring. While there were many pleasant experiences, this was one of the biggest (and most pleasant) surprises. I rode in late in the afternoon and had the plac...  more »
  • We enjoyed seeing a bit of history. Kept things original. Staff dressed in 1800 clothes. Must see. Great for school age and family event. 
  • This fort saw a lot of history! It was very interesting. We were lucky because they were expecting a bus tour so we could see all of the exhibits. It is definitely worth seeing!

  • Excellent historical site with a large fort and other original surrounding buildings. It's right off of I-70, just about a mile. Well worth the small entry fee and time to check out this well preserved site.
  • We pulled off I70 looking for a place to have our picnic lunch and are so glad we ended up here. $5 day use fee. Lovely picnic area past the fort. The fort itself is fully renovated with impressive stone walls (most forts had wooden stockades). The barrack buildings have been carefully set out to represent the typical spaces. Staffed by docents in period costume, Fort Frederick State Park exceeded our expectations.
  • Very clean and great for children and families. Educational. Staff very helpful and kind.
  • Learned a lot visiting here. Knowledgeable interpreters and the interpretive text was very informative. Was a great little stop and nice park. Learned a lot!
  • Excellent fort and even better staff - a must see if you are in Western Maryland!
