It's a little walk to get to the fort. You have to park in a little section and walk through the residential zone. The lighthouse is locked up and there is a fence around the fort but there are big holes in the fence everyone goes through to go into the fort. Cool graffiti to check out. Just please respect the fort and everyone else who would like to see it and take your garage with you and not destroy anything!!
