Fort Washington Park Reviews
I’ve been many times to the Fort, sometimes to sit and quietly read, or show friends around. I have even used it for photo shoots. The history and sprawling vistas are exciting. more »
We'd seen this fort every time we drove to Mt. Vernon and finally got there last week to enjoy a magnificent fall afternoon, strolling the grounds and the fortifications. It's off season now, so we di... more »
We went to Fort Washington and had a blast. Lots to see, a lighthouse, abanded fort, draw bridge, officer quarters and more. What's great is the beautiful grounds and the structures that you can walk ... more »
Great place to go explore and see some local history. I went in the winter and it was still fantastic but if you went in the summer and took a picnic and maybe your bikes would be a fantastic weekend outing.
A great place to go learn about the history of coastal artillery on the Potomac. I went on a weekday morning in November and had the place virtually to myself. This place is huge, with lots to see from several different eras. Great views of the Potomac all the way to DC in the distance.
Really neat fort. Was surprised how large it was and it has a breathtaking view of the Potomac River. However the fort and exhibits in the park are very poorly maintained. Also wish there were more information podiums around. There were some cool buildings that I wanted to know more about but there were no podiums or park rangers around.
This park was a great find! So under rated because it is so close to DC. I went at sunset and the views of the Potomac were spectacular. I will be coming back again!
Went to get our National Parks Lifetime Senior Pass(62+). It's currently $10.00 and I hear that the cost is going up soon. When we went, we had to go to the Visitor Center. A little hike from the parking lot. I was told that there is a way to drive closer for drop-off if you call ahead. Beautiful view across the Potomac River. An informative video about Fort Washington can be seen at the center.
