Nice little park. Good hiking. We sometimes take the dogs for a walk there. The forest is lovely. Rhodies in the woods in the spring.

Fort Townsend is the opposite of Fort Worden, in that there is nothing left of the buildings or structures, even though they were occupied (and dismantled) at about the same time. But it has great trails, and good interpretive signs which are worth reading. Definitely worth a visit.

Very nice park for picnics and just chilling out. Clean and nice view of the water. Easy to get too. Need a discover pass to just eat but what can you do. all parks require them.

It is incredible how beautiful the forest is here, and it is just a few miles from Pt Townsend. It is like you've entered into a totally different climate zone as you drive down the road to enter the park. It is a lush rainforest .

I believe it is about 450 acres in size, and was an old military fort location established during the civil war. There is tent and RV camping in a gorgeous setting.There are large open grass areas too.

One of the trails goes along the bluff and overlooks the bay.You can walk all the way down to the water and have a picnic right on the bay.You will get a nice view of Mt Baker way off in the distance, Pt Townsend , the paper mill , and the Navy's Indian Island .

This is a great park for nice walks on the many trails through the trees and ferns.

The setting is as it was when I last visited in 1976. However, the state has done a wonderful job of protecting it.
