  • We stopped at this park. There is nothing there except a sign, some rocks and a restroom that need repair. We were there about three minutes.  more »
  • It may be the historic site of a once interesting Fort, but now there is nothing left. Pity. A few foundation stones and a state park plaque.  more »
  • Not much of a fort, mainly ruins and only a quick stop. I would recommend reading on-line and not waste time stopping.  more »

  • It's basically just a pile of rocks. Your kids won't appreciate it. But it's got historical significance, and it's easy to pull over and snap a picture if you're‚Äč heading to the Wimea Canyon.
  • A little off the beaten path, but a very informative state park detailing some of the history of early western colonists in the Hawaiian Islands. Great views of the sea and not very crowded. There are bathrooms at this park and whales can be seen during the northern hemisphere winter months (breeding season). Highly recommend a stop.
  • Credit for preserving what's left, but it was deliberately dismantled so there's not a lot to see.
  • Small, barren fort. You really got to love the history of this fort to enjoy it.
  • Great history, people say not a lot to see, but you go to see the history and what used to be there 300 years ago. FYI the years on the map are wrong.
