  • Beautiful place. Although we got there and there were no activities, we still walked around and enjoyed the serenity and beauty of the place. It is a beautiful place. So easy to access and close to Los Angeles. I'm going to definitely check out their schedule and go when they have an event. Can't wait.
  • This old fort is a great little stop that takes no more than a half hour to perhaps an hour to see everything here. There are restrooms too. You can see parts of the park by wheelchair, although it is all dirt and hilly. This would be tough for those that have problems with balance or walking too . Uniforms, weapons and quarters are on display in the main structure. An old jail house with 3 cells along with the attending guards house are open to go inside. A fountain with potable water is available along with ample parking.
  • A walk back in time that you've probably passed a hundred times coming up the grapevine going south. Be careful of the exit, it'll sneak up on you. Highly recommend the audio tour you can do on your cell phone. $3 per person but free, limited, parking.
  • Beautiful, plenty of parking for semi 🚚 and for cars. Vending machines for a quick snack and clean restrooms
  • Lots of little known California history... camel mounted calvalry... the guy Lebec was named for was killed by a bear!
