  • Not much to see here and not worth a trip, unless you are a serious history buff with an interest in the era.  more »
  • Not much left of the fort. And that's an understatement. We didn't even get out of the car. What remains of the fort is just a pile of rubble.  more »
  • We stopped here for ten minutes...basically read the info board , learned a little history and opted to not walk around the short trail. There are some rock walls left that basically mark the spot whe...  more »

  • If you are a history buff it might be ok, but kids will be bored out of their mind. The positive is you can pull in, read the sign and walk the path down into the fort and back in less than a half hour easy. Tip: The path isn't well marked, it starts at the sign that gives the history of the fort and heads towards the river.
  • Good piece of interesting History, although we found that there wasn't alot to see
  • An impressive achievement considering the labor and tech available during the time period it was built. I don't really want to send non-history buffs, although its a nice little walk. Just a suggestion: read the history of it..it make it stand out just a bit.
  • Old overgrown remnants of the fortress wall covered in grasses and small trees. Partial tree clippings just left outside the wall and not picked up. Poorly made and hard to identify pathway from the info area. Most people wandered down the dirt road toward the beach and had to turn back to find it. The best thing is the shaded parking lot, which needs repair. Bathrooms available. Handicap access to the info area only. Walk to the internal area is very lack luster. Not woth a stop at all unless you want to read the board.
  • Went there to try to catch a sunset with wife. Didn't even get out of car before we we chased away by some prostitute dragging a tree branch behind her and yelling at us "to mind our own business".
