This is a fascinating old fort. It is so well maintained. Lots of tunnels. The drive up to it is amazingly pretty. Many turn off to see different parts of the fort, gun turrets and such. There are also many paths to secluded areas of the beach in this beautiful area. The little museum is informative. It is also very well maintained, and easy to get around. Of course there are many stairs if you want to get to the top to see the lookout. The view is amazing out over the gulf, but you can see that easily from all over. Worth the time!

This is a wonderful fort. They allow you to see most of the fort and it is easy to get to-not a lot of walking. My husband was able to access the fort overlook in his wheelchair.

The ranger was very informative as we walked in. The history of this attraction is fascinating. The only problem I had was the steep stairs as I have a bad knee, but it was still worth a stop.
