  • Such a neat experience! I was told I was brought there as a child but I have no recollection of such, but going as an adult is truly awe-inspiring. Take the time to read all the signs and placards and be sure to ask one of the attendants in the welcome center to let you into the tower and officers quarters.
  • Beautiful riverside view. Great for free sledding in the winter. Small river-side beach and children's playground. Seasonal ferry access.
  • Nice tour through the gun batteries. Good views of Pea Patch Island.
  • Great place to bring kids to just run and be kids. So much space and never crowded.
  • Fort Mott is one of our go to places pretty much year round. They have different activities for all kinds of historical events. We sled in the winter. You can catch the ferry to an old Civil War prisoner of war fort. Walk trail or just sit at the park. It a very peaceful place.
