"Fort Abercrombie" Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park by herzog63

Good fun anytime of year!

Fort Abercrombie is a fun little State Historic Park that is located just 4 miles from Downtown Kodiak. Fishing, Hiking, Swimming (summer), Historical Walks, and Whale watching are just some of the many fun things to do here! I'm also going to include Tips and photos about Mill Bay Beach Park as it is a nice little "city" park that is located about .4 of a mile from the entrance to Fort Abercrombie and is also a very popular all season destination. We go to Fort Abercrombie quite often to enjoy the forest hikes that are not too long and offer some great views and fresh air.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great Hiking, Fresh Air, wonderful views!!
  • Cons:NONE!!
  • In a nutshell:Wonderful!!

    I hope for Mr. Clay that he didn't miss the Northern Lights & Sunrise view over the gun tube as well! Magnificent to have such an outdoor paradise in your own area! Scott, please how can I donate for saving the Loop Tree?!
