  • This historic location is unusual from other American historical locations in that it was a British installation established to defended the British colonies at it's Western edge plus it is very close to the historic C&O canal. It is well worth a visit.
  • Great place to visit. Has a campground as well. Very peaceful and quiet. The history is very interesting as well.
  • very cool place to literally walk back into time ..we went with the dogs (it was off season) but they are not allowed ..we went back again (offseason) and just walked around it was peaceful and intriguing the fort walls are beautiful
  • Had a fun time with my family here. Would go back any time it's nice out!
  • A great historic site plenty to see and do easy access to location.
