Fort Weatherill is home to a beautiful cove that looks out onto the ocean. To access it, continue past the main entrance to the fort (where the sign is) and you'll reach a second parking lot. The cove has crystal clear water and you can...More

Great place to go fishing. Spearfishing. Photos of the surrounding area. Exploring the old Fort. Good place to walk around and enjoy the views and water with the ships pasting by. Stay for a sunrise or sunset

Fort Wetherill was a disappointment from the beginning. There is so much trash left behind by other inconsiderate people who visit. It is a state run park and there are no trash receptacles. There are also fish hooks and broken bottles all over the rocks....More

A beautiful park you dont want to miss! Beautiful rocky cliffs over the water below, you can watch the boats floating by. Beautiful photography area- and even some old abandoned bunkers for the adventure keen souls!

Nice place to spend the day watching the boats sail by. I like to bring a chair and a picnic lunch. Usually not crowded as it is kind of off the beaten trail.

Way bigger than I had expected. Huge military ruins and great trails for wondering around the old fortifications. Get towards the bay and see amazing views.

Killer cliff views if you're willing to do a bit of walking (and climbing) (It's often windy/cool, so I'd suggest bringing an extra jacket)
