If you like history, walking around, architecture and nature, this is the place for you. There is not so much to do in the Lake Champlain/Adirondacks region but this is definitely one place to check out and visit. Make sure to see the Kings Garden.

Fantastic. Privately funded by the Pell family and donations, the fort is a wonderful place to visit. Another keystone of American revolutionary history.

We were pleasantly pleased to find this fort and tour it. There are several activities available and we only had a short time to enjoy them. People are dressed in period clothing and our tour guide was awesome!!

very nice and friendly folks those who run this establishment. No doubt there is some history to this but not much to see from architecture or engineering perspective.
