“Misleading Name”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

Russian Fort Elizabeth? Sounds inviting, and not at all like a big bunch of rocks, an average bathroom and, in our case, a pretty unusual man living in his silver van offering free lessons on self-confidence. If you're a history buff, it's probably worth a quick look if you happen to be passing by. I was unduly unimpressed, but will still go with an average rating because, hey....it is in Kauai.

“Nothing but rocks!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

I thought this would be interesting but it is just a pile of rocks that are now overgrown with bushes and weeds. Nothing to see here.

“A lot of nothing”

Well, as we were driving around we made a pause here, but actually we did not find anything interest at all.

“Keep Driving! Nothing To See...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

We saw the sign and decided to pull over. We followed a well groomed path to the ocean. We took the path left; we took the path right. There was no fort! Just some boulders! (We later read the sign that mentioned that the fort was no longer standing).

The bathrooms were not clean and lacked handsoap. My advice- keep driving past this place.

“Not much to see but restroom stop was good enough.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

We stopped here because at the time, there was a 'free' festival with music playing to kick off a week long celebration but the mosquitoes were so horrible we couldn't hang around to enjoy the local entertainment so we left (we had also been bummed out that we ate 1 hour earlier at shrimp station because the food here was significantly cheaper and smelled really REALLY good!) ...just bad timing in that aspect I guess.
