    Fairly Cheap all day activity when you include the ferry trip which in it's self was kinda of fun. Great time many nooks and crannies to explore, if you enjoy the Civil War then this is a great stop for you and your family. BEWARE the Ferry Ride does cause extra if your coming from Fort Morgan or Vice Versa so please be aware of this.

    Cool place and watch the black Smith he can make you something and you can buy it. I got a meat flipper he made right in front of me.

    Nice relic of the civil war to explore. This place is well maintained.

    Personally, the view from this fort is amazing, but not for $6 for adults and teens. I went with 10 other people, and another tourists said that they charge $10 per person over 5 people. If you have the money, go. I wish that they had a Daughters of the American Revolution discount, as it is partially owned by the DAR, or a Daughters of the Confederacy discount, because it was a Confederate battlesight.

    Went with my wife and 2 young children. Everyone found it interesting but not any big WOW. It is walking distance from the ferry and they have water for a $1 at the desk.
