  • Very accessible and great parking. Very well kept and full of rich history with well preserved buildings. The museum houses a very nice collection of era specific artifacts. Best of all: it is usually not crowed!

  • Beautiful historic site with some preserved buildings. It costs $3 to enter the park however it is free to visit the mini museum at the entrance and also to use the bathrooms.
  • A unique piece of early California history. As an amateur historian. antique buff, and one who enjoys getting out in the country, Fort Tejon is one of my favorite day trip destinations.

Be sure to deposit the requested "honor system" entry fee--this park cannot operate on nothing!
  • This grabbed my attention while driving on I5. I imagined a fort with tall walls and huge door to enter the fort :) I have been seeing larger stoner built, with huge doors, hundreds of steps and surrounded by villages in India so this was not that exciting. Maybe this is 1 time visit for half a day.
