Quiet campsite, some sites with hookups. View of Puget Sound ship traffic. Great Fort to explore! Get in early, only 22 sites.

Fort Casey is a very interesting place to visit if you're interested in history and enjoy great views across the strait. We enjoyed climbing the batteries and reading about the fort's past. Very nice lighthouse (unfortunately it was closed when we visited).

Great Location - Great View over the Salish Sea. I Always Enjoy Learning a bit about Local and National History, and the Best Way to do this is to come to places such as Fort Casey. The Docent or Guide in the Lighthouse Was Great!...More

Fort Casey is a old fort pre dating WWI with some big guns and old barracks buildings. Lots of land to explore with camping and picnic areas, and a beautiful lighthouse. Well worth a visit to explore.

We came here to see the lighthouse. Bummer that you have to pay the state park fee to see it, but it is only $10 for the car. Get a discovery pass for $30 if you will be in Washington for a while and it...More

We spent the better part of the day exploring Fort Casey State Park. Don't miss it and be sure and include a trip to the light house.
