  • This fort has been restored by the state of Maine. It overlooks the entrance to Portsmouth, NH harbor on the Piscataqua River. There is a Navy Ship Yard along the river, active from the early 1700s. T...  more »
  • It's nice, with an average water view for the area, but the parking is limited. I much prefer New Castle Common, which you can see from there, because it has a lot more activation.  more »
  • Beautiful views of Portsmouth Harbor Light and Whaleback Light. Tour the Fort and learn history of area back to 1600's. Great to hang out and view harbor and have a picnic and relax too.  more »

  • Such a nice place to take a nature walk, admire the view, or meander around the old buildings. Any time of year is a good time to go, though if you want access inside the tower you'll have to check seasonal hours.
  • A fun and historic place to visit by yourself or take the family. It has sweeping views of Casco Bay and two lighthouses. The kids can run and explore the fort. There are a couple of picnic tables and an outhouse. It is a great place for birdwatching as well. Fort McClary is an eBird Hotspot.
  • I have been to many state and federal parks. This is well maintained and lots of access to the innee workings of the fort. Very limited public restrooms so a visit before you arrive would be a good idea
  • Feel like I got to see a part of history.
  • Great place to walk around explore and learn about history
