  • A great place tucked away with an amazing view of the light house. Free admission, historic old (possibly haunted) military bunkers, and an open field for picnicking. Deer and foxes have been spotted multiple times, and it's amazing to see deer at the beach! There's no real restroom facilities other than a portopotty in the parking lot, but still an amazing time. Not open in winter.
  • Beautiful. Very exciting for the kids to explore. Views are breathtaking. It's sad that funds do not exist to support the forts being maintained. Use care with little ones as it is ocean side with lots of stairs. The fencing around the crumbling forts is far from toddler proof so parents would have to be very attentive to little ones. But, it is a great family adventure. We were there during a reenactment, it was very interesting.
  • A nice place to visit for a great cinematic view of Portsmouth Harbor. A great historical site for any tourists or avid WW1 or WW2 enthusiasts.
  • Beautiful beach,. The museum is fun for all rich in history.
  • Who knew the great history at the end of the road
