In addition to the activities listed above, several golf courses are nearby,
along with the fascinating historic town of Port Townsend. The Olympic Mountains
rise majestically nearby. From nearly everywhere, you can hear the cry of the gull
and the call of the sea.
Picnicking: Fort Worden offers dozens of outstanding day-use
and picnic areas. Whether overlooking the high centennial cliffs of Artillery Hill
and the often wild Straights of Juan de Fuca. Or a placid vista encompassing the
distant Mt. Baker, framed by Pt. Wilson Lighthouse and the Port Townsend Marine
Science Center on the end of the pier. Numerous day-use picnic tables and fireboxes
provide the excellent picnic spot. The Cable House Canteen is an on-site food and
convenience store, offering sundries, delicious burgers or hot breakfast entrées.
