  • Visited this Fort in 2012. We had the place almost for ourselves, Beautiful fort, with great views. There was also a very friendly staff member (I can't remember his name, lovely man), who gave us a beautiful book about the fort, as we came all the way from Europe:-)

  • Good picnic place and see a historic fort.

  • Closed and all there was access to was a boat ramp.
