  • Beautiful piece of area WW2 history and a great place to check out. Well worth the walk all the way up the hill
  • Right near the beach, great trails and excellent mushroom foraging all in one area. Park ranger guided mushroom hunt began here
  • An interesting, albeit relatively small historical site. Worth a one hour stop. Some of the rear rooms are pretty dark, so bringing a flashlight could be helpful. Very little infrastructure other than concrete remains.
  • I was a little disappointed by the site. Probably I was expecting something different from the bunker that is there. It ist quite impressive to have a look at the small rooms at the defended side of the facility, but the overall impression is one of hostility (by nature, a bunker and fort always is hostile).
  • There is a huge parking area, a single restroom, and then take a short walk to the battery that once housed two WWII 10" disappearing guns to protect the mouth of the Columbia River. Apparently the base was once shelled by a Japanese submarine but there was little damage. There is a memorial dedicated in 1992 that marked the incident.
