  • We checked out this state park. The historical signage is good on the main display in the park, if you want to check it out. There has been no archeological work done, nor is there signage at the ruin...  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".
