  • Yep. There is not much to see here. But it was a piece of history that I did not know and I always like to learn something new. If you are driving by and need a bathroom break, stop here and read the ...  more »
  • Fortunately there are very well done panels to explain this monument for there is little to show of the Russian presence on Kaua'i in the 19th century. You will have to use your imagination to conjure...  more »
  • Best part: clean public restrooms. Worst part: little to see of 1817 ruins. No archeology has been done. Hard to visualize what it was like to live here in its best days as only some stones remain. Li...  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".
