Great spot to see the bay and docks. The grounds were spotless and beautiful. Very well kept. There are bathrooms at the visitor center. It was a nice little spot and the fort is cool.

Nice way to spend an hour or so... Fort is in need of some new TLC as weeds were everywhere and chipped paint. Otherwise a nice place to stop!

At Fort Trumbull State park you can learn about history, watch the activities in the Thames river and relax and fish. It dates back to 1839 and is part of Third System of Fortification. There is parking and a visitor center.

My kids (teens) enjoyed the history and all the information, which is saying something! I like that it included detail from the Revolutionary War and since! The views are fantastic as well.
