Fort Pike State Historic Site, New Orleans Reviews
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.
Google's info is wrong. It appears that the park is closed to the public permanently. You can only make appointments . Please call the number before venturing out there
We we married on top of Fort Pike, on May 5th, 2001!!! Absolutely beautiful day!!
