The fort was closed for the season but were able to walk around the grounds. The fort is still intact and the area around the fort is a nice little walk.

We stopped the week after labor day and was disappointed because they are closed after labor day. Really? A state Park closed after a holiday? Come on CT you can do better. The walk and views are spectacular but we would have loved to tour...More

I took my parents to the fort and the museum in July; the museum is just the right size to be comprehensive without being too exhausting, and it was nice to walk through the fort after reading all about its history. I wouldn't take a...More
