  • Nice structure, nice views. Not a lot of parking space. Saw a bunch of seals swimming fairly near shore on our last visit. Nice place for family.
  • If you love history and the ocean this is the place for you. Lighthouses included along the way. Beautiful beaches, boardwalk shops, and stunning views. Usually busy but inviting and pleasant people.
  • Lots to do and see. Your imagination will run wild picturing what life must have been like.
  • The forts are a fun place to go after a day spent at Popham Beach. It's been our family tradition to spend the day at the beach, hit Fort Popham after, and to cap it all off, we always go to Percy s store for Gifford s icecream! What a great way to spend a day!
  • Great historical site with a marvelous view. Went in mid June and got to see some seals playing about in the water. The fort is right next to a beach that makes for a great walk. Might want to bring some bug spray, the mosquitoes were quite vicious.
