The tour was perfect and the guide was very knowledgeable about the fort. Every part was built as it was in 1757. We learned things about American history we never knew. Very nice gift shop with lots of books about the fort and the area.

The fort is all recreated, but with a real effort at authenticity. The staff knows the fort’s history, and tells it well. Signs tell a lot more about the history, as well as the naval side of the local history.

First a video is shown, then the demonstration. If you walk around the fort, it may take a little over an hour.

Not sure where the park is. But it's in front of the ferries and boat launch down the road from a major beach area for lake George. In very close to the center of town
