We enjoyed our time here, despite the busloads of noisy school children. The musket demo was fun to watch, but what was most interesting was talking to: the seamstress as she repaired uniforms, the cobbler as he made and repaired shoes, and the carpenter as...More

Fort Ticonderoga is privately owned so there is a charge to get in but all the proceeds help fund the preservation of the Fort, so well worth every penny! We rode from Vermont so we got to enjoy the Ferry ride to get over to...More

This fort is set in a lovely spot overlooking Lake Champlain. The fort and its displays are very well done and interesting, without being too academic. I thought the highlight of the visit was the quality and attitude of the staff in their historic costumes....More

Fort Ticonderoga is located right on Lake Champlain and is both beautiful and historic. The cannon and mortars are truly impressive in their numbers and as original pieces of artillery, not reproductions. The daily events such as fort tour, musket demonstration, etc. are interesting and...More

We went on a very rainy day and found staff doing marching and musket demonstrations outside, in period dress. The school students in attendance were certainly not short changed. One might expect an abbreviated demonstration because of the weather but that certainly wasn't the case....More

My Father served on the Ticonderoga Aircraft Carrier and so I would like to take the family there for a visit. May I asked where you stayed? Is Lake George quite a distance? Looking for a recommendation for lodging.

We stayed in a cabin at the Brookwood R. resort, because we wanted to be more in the Adirondacks. After thinking about it, we should have stayed in "Ticonderoga". It was charming.
Is allowing about 3 hours to visit the fort a good estimate of time?
