Fort Casey State Park isn't all that large, but there are several bluffs along the shoreline, and more importantly there are concrete walls without handrails everywhere that are part of the remains of the old fortifications.

Therefore, watch your step, don't do anything too fast (don't go running over the top of a hill only to find there is nothing on the other side!) and keep control of your children when they are around the huge concrete dropoffs.

Handrails are scattered here and there, but you probably shouldn't trust 100 year old hardware to hold you in place.

Also, before climbing up on smething, make sure it has something under it to hold you. This goes for the potentially undermined edges of the bluffs as well as the fortress remains. Take a look especially at photo 3! You can't see that there is nothing holding you up until you are stainding on the platform, and by then it is too late!
