  • It was a fun experience.. especially in the daytime... been there one time before this experience in the evening time for sailfest fireworks... it's a beautiful State Park check it out!!!!!
  • I love how the earthworks are preserved but are minimally maintained. I've been to several forts that have been rebuilt, but this is totally new experience. Be sure to go past the main structure of the fort to see the fortifications closer to the water via the very cool trenchworks.
  • Great views, interesting history for very short battle. American courage against well trained British. Yet they chose to fight.
  • you would never believe where this site is but thats whats great about Connecticut they cherish their old homes and history. this is a nice spot to add to any day trip you might be doing
  • I grew up near Fort Griswold and the Bill Memorial library. It's such a beautiful and quiet area.
