This is a provincial park so it is well preserved and worth the time to explore. Not only do you get a chance to step into military history but you also get to learn about part of the maritime history and a great lighthouse.

This was an amazing place to visit. It has a little something for everyone. First the views are amazing. The lighthouse is very well preserved. The fort is small but has terrific displays (at least as they prepared for the 150th celebration).
