  • The Park has been placing Christmas Themed Geocaches for the past few years. They are great. Recommend this for other geocachers. Great trails. Great views of the lake. Great place for birders.  more »
  • We were in the North Loop, full H/U. Rest rooms/showers in another loop.Very clean,looked like new. Grounds well maintained. Enjoyed our two days. Four stars due to a $7 / day additional charge for our toad. Whaaat?
  • I took advantage of the beautiful spring day to log some miles on the hiking trails. The trails are well groomed and marked out clearly with maps at each fork. Although I prefer a more rugged, untamed trail, the park did not disappoint with the varying terrain from pebbly beaches to young pine forests. The fort was quite educational and well preserved. Also, there are a few fitness trails with a workout regimen for both athletes and families. Fort Stevenson Park has something to offer everyone and I would highly recommend for a wonderful afternoon retreat!
