  • nicely preserved ruin of an old WW2 fort with a long range cannon all cleared out; just the ghosts of the past, left roaming ... 
  • And crawl around the bunkers. Interesting view. Like a set of ruins, but modern all cement. Interesting historical information. A lovely stop in the area. 
  • The Battery Russell is located in Fort Stevens State Park. The concrete artillery gun battery (historical site) had several rooms but the big guns were gone. It was still interesting to see. We spent ...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Awesome state park with cool stuff to visit
  • 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).
  • The sight of families enjoying time together never fails to fill me with a deep sense of well being. Fathers' carefully leading toddlers by the hand, teenagers smoking meth and children being locked into disused WWII military installations are the things that dreams are made of. Had a wonderful time, would go back.
