Actually we got here accidentally but once there absorbed all of the rich history available. The view was terrific even on a cool windy day. It was great to see the water and the mountains. Amazing those bunkers on the side of the hills were such a piece of history. Also great to see the ocean through the rain!

Really interesting place to visit but easy to miss. The Fort was active from late 1800s through to WW2 and has some really great artilleries to view. Would be a great stop for military and maritime history enthusiasts. There is actually quite a lot to see here and plenty of opportunities to wander the site and explore. There are some great views of the Columbia River.

There are some picnic areas, an interpretive center and some hiking trails if you want to spend more time here. Well worth a stop!

This park is so full of history but will also appeal to kids with all the nooks and tunnels to explore. We visited on a Monday, so nothing was open as far as the visitor center or any of the homes. But the grounds are fun to wander around and all the old military munitions works are awesome for exploring.
We spent a couple of hours and didn’t even hike any of the trails as we were just passing through. I would allow 3 hours if you want time to see everything!

Stopped in our way home to Portland from Long Beach. It was a gorgeous day, though windy. You could easily see Astoria and Saddle Mountain from the top. They have vacation rentals available, though we stopped in only for the day. It makes for a great photo shoot spot, especially when you get down into the bunkers embedded into the side of the hills. Great fun to wander around and see out into the Pacific for miles!

Small coastal fort with disappearing gun battery(no guns). There's two shield guns that are interesting to see and a lot of remaining buildings(none were open). There is a $10.00 day use fee. So unless you're going to the other state parks nearby you may not find the charge worth it.
