      On the surface, Fort Townsend is a classic state park on a Puget Sound beach. But a closer look reveals a hidden history.

      Built in 1856, Fort Townsend operated as a U.S. Army site on and off until a fire destroyed its barracks in 1895. The small camping park south of Port Townsend is unique among Washington's coastal forts because it has all but returned to nature.

      Military buffs, walk the parade lawn and find interpretive plaques lining the former Officers' Row. Explore a historic torpedo tower that held state-of-the-art technology during World War II (and is now part of the group campground). And don't forget to check the park's calendar to learn about events taking place on the lawn.

      Fort Townsend provides a quieter alternative to its bigger, busier northern neighbor, Fort Worden. The park has 6 miles of loamy trails through soaring Douglas-firs, western hemlock, cedar trees and a rich understory of ferns. Wander down to the beach for views of Port Townsend Bay.

      Couples planning to tie the knot and families arranging reunions can rent the Friends Barn, a replica of the Fort's historic stable, now a charming hall with a fireplace, located between the forest and the beach. Not only will you enjoy Fort Townsend's relaxed vibe, you may feel the park's historic past, even if you can't see it.

      PARK FEATURES
      Fort Townsend is a 413-acre, marine camping park with 3,960 feet of saltwater shoreline on Port Townsend Bay. The forested park has a rich history in the armed forces, dating from pioneer days.
