Fort Stevens State ParkIt began as a military defense installation during the Civil War. When it closed 84 years later at the end of World War II, Fort Stevens was transformed into Fort Stevens State Park. The 4,200-acre destination is home to many miles of hiking and biking trails that run through forests of spruce and hemlock. There are several lakes for swimming, boating, and fishing as well as a scenic spot for picnicking.
