  • Well preserved smaller fort. Self guided tour runs $8 per adult & $4 per child. Bathroom facilities & drink vending machine on site. Tickets are good for the entire day. Lovely small museum exhibits & lots of fun areas to explore.
  • $8 per adult for a self guided tour. You get a pamphlet with information about each stop on the tour. Great for history buffs, kids and photographers. There are some steep stair cases and hilly areas. Great views and interesting history.
  • Really interesting history. Loved beinging tth family.
  • Very interesting Fort. I enjoyed the small museum inside that offered a break from the heat. Pretty views of the water. We enjoyed an educational blacksmith presentation.
  • Great historical place. Well worth a visit. We even got to watch a black smith last time we were here.
