This old fort provides a fun adventure, a great beach, free entrance (but limited parking), and opportunities for fishing. The best part? It doesn't cost a nickel. If you only have a couple of hours and don't want to pay the entrance fees for the State Park, this is an outstanding alternative!
We had a meal up from the fort so as we were there we decided to have a look around. Unfortunately the fort was closed but we were able to get the jist of what it was from the outside and looking through the gates. When the tide is out you can walk along the rocks around the fort -... 更多
This place is so cool, the views, the area surrounding it, the activities going on all around you make the experience like being transported to another time. There is a small beach to the right of the fort and benches along a walkway that goes along the waterfront. This is a great place to fish or picnic, to do some... 更多
Most of the Forts in Maine were built,but never used. Isn't that the idea? To be so fortified that we do not become attack! History buffs will enjoy this. Children have a safe area to run and play. Photographers will love taking photos of the ocean. And there is the beautiful State Park with a beach nearby. Bring your lunch... 更多

It was a nice surprise and we enjoyed it. My girls went running off through the... 更多

We had lunch at Spinneys Restaurant and rented a room for the night. This place is right on the water. All the food is house made and was excellent.... 更多
Exploring the in's and out's of this historic beautiful stone work fort is beyond comparison to any other oceanside opportunity - during any season that it is open. Most popular is of course summer - ample parking, but could fill up - if it does, go to Percy's for $10 and backtrack with good eats, and your own cooler or... 更多
Visited in August with my three children. They all found it to be very exciting and intriguing. They loved the dark passages and exploring upstairs. It was fun because we were in the neighborhood, camping in Phippsburg, but I wouldn't go out of our way to visit this fort. We were there for no more than 1 hour as it... 更多
