We found this location to be even better than Fort Stevens because we could walk around inside the various rooms. Wish there were more plaques to explain what we were looking at, though. Be prepared f... more »
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.
