  • Very cool, wide open, old fort. It's on the Delaware river so you have a nice river view. There are a few trails here. Small playground with bathrooms, not open all the time... Oh, and some history and a military cemetery. Good family trip. Been there a few times.
  • Awesome park for history lovers! Beautiful and right by the Delaware River. You can give you and your family a self-walk tour. And the best part is that it is free!
  • Great views year round and the ferry that takes you out to the island in warmer weather. Great for little kids that like to run
  • We love Fort Mott. Get there early though. They close the parking lot at 4pm. You can park on the adjacent street and still get in the park.
  • 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.
