  • Some people don't seem to appreciate the historical aspect, and too many folks look for a lot of noisy whiz-bang stuff - which this place doesn't have. The park is very historic, especially when combi...  more »
  • Stopped at the park on our way to the ferry. It was peaceful and quiet with beautiful views of the gulf and boat traffic. I do wish there were more details available to explain exactly what we were lo...  more »
  • This was an interesting stop while just out exploring. The grounds are well kept, but unfortunately the historic buildings are in just awful condition. History from pre-civil war up through WW II can ...  more »

  • For those visiting Galveston Island, don't miss out on the free ferry ride to the North of Galveston. Accross the ferry ride you will find a civil war fort that is fun for the kids. You can purchase a 10 dollar sticker at local stores and park anywhere on the beach. Real secluded and peaceful. This is a must for families or those who want to avoid the all the tourist traffic.
  • The place is small and laid out weird with two one way loops where you park and walk to the nice covered picnic tables. Good place to let the kids loose. Good views all around of ship traffic.
  • Such an interesting and historic site, just a short ride off Galveston Island proper. The ferry was well managed and you can get out of your car and watch this historic attraction grow closer. The park itself offers areas for bar-b-q and picnic, as well as play areas, historic markers and a real authentic feeling on antiquity. This is also an excellent place to catch the sunset across the back-bay of Galveston.
  • The grounds we're nice,but can't drive on the seawall and go in the bunkers . it's a wast of tax dollars
  • Not much too see but it's cool that you are able to walk around the old forts. Great veiw if the gulf as well. It is a nice fort. Btw No public restrooms or water fountains. I would recommend to anyone who takes the ferry to the island.
