Facility:Fort Macon State Park
Description:Fort Macon offers public access to the surf, sun and sand of the Crystal Coast as well as a historic landmark. Located at the eastern end of Bogue Banks, one of a series of barrier islands along the North Carolina coast, the park is surrounded on three sides by the Atlantic Ocean, Beaufort Inlet and Bogue Sound. This area of undisturbed natural beauty is the perfect place to explore salt marshes and estuaries vital to the coastal ecosystem.

The park is also home to a Civil War fort with a history as intricate and unique as the waterways of the sound. Visit Fort Macon to enjoy the land's natural beauty and soak up some history.

We went to Fort Macon about a year ago. It was fun for our 5 year old. He got to walk around a real fort and see the big cannons and imagine fighting pirates. He had a good time. There is a very small gift shop. It was fun to see history.

My family and I really enjoyed our trip to Fort Macon last year. Our boys thought the canons were really cool. Great place to visit anytime.
