Owner description: A Civil War fortress located at the entrance of Beaufort Inlet.
Reviewed 7 September 2017

The views from the top of the fort are incredible. There is a lot to see and experience here for guests of all ages. The visitor center is well done and the grounds are meticulously kept. Mobility issues could present a problem accessing all parts of the fort. There is ample parking and a beach that we did not visit. There is no cost but donations are accepted. It was a fun way to learn about history.

We stayed at Pine Knolls Shore & the Fort was worth the drive. A beautiful secluded beach within walking distance as well!

We enjoyed our visit to the Fort whose roots go back to the 1820s. Great area where you can walk around, see the history and learn how the fort evolved over time. We went later in the day, about an hour before closing, so not many people around.

I haven't been here in years. They have done a magnificent job of restoring the old fort and have added many interesting exhibits. They have also built a new visitors center that is great.

If you want a change from the beachor pool it's a fun thing to go see. I learned a lot about the history of the fort.
