The fort sits atop a hill that overlooks the Sheepscot River, so it has amazing views. It's a pretty nice place to picnic or watch the sunset.

If you like History this is another place to go.At least I didn't have to pay to get in. If you want to spend the day there you can bring lunch with you there tables to sit at you can enjoy the sea.
