Last day of our trip and we spent ample time here. Very educational and fun. The park staff was very accommodating and experienced.

When I visit St Croix, the fort is just one of many sites you can't miss in downtown! How many times have I visited, I can't remember but the history of this fort and the display of are and culture are not to be missed!

A great fort to visit and tour for about an hour or so. A nice way to learn some the history of the region and Christiansted!

Great experience and wonderful views. Learned more about the history of the people here--the good and the bad. But if you are tall be careful not to bump your head!

We visited this past week (Sep 29th). We found the fort very interesting and well maintained by the US Park Service. Paring was free and very convenient for a visit of the city and boardwalk area for lunch and shopping.
