Fort Flagler Historical State Park

visited 13 October 2020
Looking across Port Townsend Bay to the city itself from the Lower Campground area.

Fort Flagler is one of several former military bases in and around the Puget Sound which have been turned over to the state for use as public parks. In this park, you can camp, enjoy miles of beaches, and explore the remains of the Triangle of Fire, which once guarded access to the waters near Seattle.

I visited on an October afternoon with blustery winds shepherding alternating bits of clouds, rain, and sunshine through the area.

Along the Bluff Trail, you can explore the old searchlight buildings.

Back along the main park road, you can walk around and through some of the battery buildings.

Some of the former dormitories are now used as a conference and retreat center.
