Wasn't as good as previous years but still fun. Lots of scares, and great props. Friendly staff and volunteers. We go every year and will definitely be back next Halloween.

A great historical place to visit and a place to learn about our history. It’s a beautiful setting, and it’s easy to walk around to see everything. A few interesting stores that sell interesting inventory.

It was closed when we were there a couple of weeks ago. You now buy your tickets inside the fort itself. I don't know if this closure is permanent.
