We arrived early in the morning for the first demonstration and were not disappointed. They give veteran discount tickets. They had great displays and re-enactors throughout the fort. Really worth the money.

Mr. Paul Stillman did a great job today demonstrating the weapons used at Fort William Henry and discussing the events that happened there during the French and Indian War. He really added to the experience with his knowledge of the time period and the For.

We did the self guided tour due to time constraints. I am sure we would have enjoyed the guided tour also. The exhibits are housed inside the rooms of the fort and provided a good look at life during the French and Indian war.

Paul was our tour guide for the 7:30 p.m. tour. He was informative and delivered everything he promised. We have done several day time tours at the Fort and have always come out with a little more knowledge than we had from the time before....More

What a stellar ghost tour. As a historian, I love coming to the fort and discovering new information and hearing new things that have been found. The ghost tour was something completely new, especially because Paul was so knowledgeable and friendly. He took the time...More

Took the Ghost Tour with Paul. We had a great time and it was everything that we were promised and expected. Paul is very knowledgeable about the Fort and Local History. We had a great experience and would highly recommend the tour.

First a video is shown, then the demonstration. If you walk around the fort, it may take a little over an hour.

Not sure where the park is. But it's in front of the ferries and boat launch down the road from a major beach area for lake George. In very close to the center of town
