There is also a Beach Campground here with 50 full hookup sites. All the sites are paved with plenty of green grass.
Fort Worden is comprised of over 430 acres. It's an old Military Fort that was established around the turn of the 20th century. It was built to protect the Puget Sound. It remained a military facility until after World War II. There are many buildings that have been fully restored. The Commanding Officer's Quarters allow visitors to tour the building, and see all the furnishings inside as well. We haven't taken the tour yet, but hope to see it before we leave. There are also a couple of small museums, gift shop, cafe, spa, laundry facility. Fort Worden is also home to a number of schools, including the Port Townsend school of Woodworking,
We have so much to explore!

|We see deer every single day here...We even had to wait for several to cross the road in the middle of Port Townsend.|
|I guess they're a little bit exhausted|
