  • We did a quick stop with our three young children and loved it! Lots of fun interactions, great history, plus clean bathroom and cheap treats. A big hit all around.  more »

  • A really cool stop on our road trip. It is $6 for non residents and $3 for in state residents, military, and seniors. Dogs are not allowed inside the fort. Bathrooms, picnic tables and gift shop are right across the road from the fort. Character actors are there to give you a tour. The kids get to dress up and sign their name in a book with a quill. The guides also did a gun demonstration which the kids loved.
  • Enjoyed the visit. Visitor's center was well stocked, clean and nice bathrooms, a good playground and picnic area. Docking a star because it isn't that walkable within the park.
  • If you you like history come here. Fort is beautifully made and designed. Comesee how the people lived. We have it easy. Brkng your children for history lesson.
  • Hidden gem with insight into our colonial history. 60 yr in Maryland and I finally got there.
  • Biking The Great Allegheny Trail and the C&O Tow Path. Stopped here for a picnic lunch. Nice spot for a picnic.
