It's nice, with an average water view for the area, but the parking is limited. I much prefer New Castle Common, which you can see from there, because it has a lot more activation.
Beautiful views of Portsmouth Harbor Light and Whaleback Light. Tour the Fort and learn history of area back to 1600's. Great to hang out and view harbor and have a picnic and relax too.
I sort of stumbled upon this - it was listed on a tourist map I picked up nearby. I'm glad I stopped by. The main building was closed as it was off season, but you could walk around the property and the remains of the fort. It is a neat piece of history and has a beautiful view over Portsmouth... 更多
Love walking around Fort McClary, besides the obvious military history, the location and views of the Portsmouth NH Harbor, lighthouses, Isles of Shoals and The open ocean.. this place is beautiful. The occasional Lobster amd fishing boats come and go on the tide. Come see for yourself. So relaxing!
Unfortunately it was foggy and raining the day we visited here so our view was very limited. However, we enjoyed our self guided visit. The fort is interesting with accessible buildings with signs and written information regarding the fort's history. Wear rubber boots if it's raining as the area is muddy.

We're both quite interested in history so we spent a long time reading every plaque & sign. If you don't like to read every detail, it will take you less time. We'd have stayed longer for the view but it was... 更多
We happened upon this park during our tour of the Maine Coast. Well maintained park with an old defensive fort. It's so nice to be able to see the history of our country through the old buildings that still remain today. The views of the bay from this park are stunning. You can see both Whaleback Lighthouse and Portsmouth Harbor... 更多
We found Fort McClary the first time purely by accident, and what a wonderful find. The views are amazing and the fort is fascinating. Now we make a point of visiting every time we get to Maine.
My family and I enjoy history and this was my son's suggestion to visit. We took many pictures and spent over an hour visiting here. There was an elementary class visiting and having lunch here so there were kids running and around, yelling, screaming, and playing so this detracted from our visit a bit. Definitely a place worth visiting.
