My brothers and I spent a beautiful day at Fort Ticonderoga. The fort was restored from the remains of the original fort. It has interesting exhibits, signs that explain things well, demonstrations by docents who also explains things well. It tells the importance of the fort in the French & Indian War and the American Revolution. It also is in... More

I really enjoyed the fort but we went at the wrong time of year. They are open until the end of October but they do not tell you that they have limited staff and the gift shop, food service is closed the last two weeks of the month. This was a little disappointing since we did not get to see... More

As part of our new New England RV fall foliage tour I included this based on childhood memories. We really enjoyed the warm weather & friendly people. As we paid our admission, we were told our miniature schnauzer was welcome to tour the grounds! Once inside we saw other dog owners, even some dogs in strollers. I shared pics of... More

My husband is a history buff. When we planned our road trip to the east coast he wanted to add this stop to our vacation. As luck would have it the day we were to visit we were late getting there. The attendent at the guard shack explained that it would be closing soon but encouraged us to come back... More

We visited in leaf season. The views from the fort were great. The fort itself was very interesting to explore and we loved the costumed tour guides. The only downside of our trip was the bus loads of rowdy middle school kids that showed up. Be sure to drive up to Mt Defiance if you have time. Your entrance fee... More

I have visited Fort Ticonderoga many times and always find something new. The fort itself is well maintained, with new exhibits each year. There are daily demonstrations of colonial era life, including musket/cannon firing, cooking, building, etc.

We spent a wonderful day at the Fort this summer. The drive through scenic upstate NY was so relaxing (I would recommend getting off I87 at exit 24, take Cnty. Rd. 11 to 9N which follows Lk. Geo.). When you walk thru the entrance, you can read the names of those who have preceded you: a who's who of American... More

We visited at peak leaf season so we had a bonus visit. The view of the area and lake Champlain is awesome. The volunteers go out of their way to present the fort as authentic as possible. If you are a history buff, this should be an all day visit.

Visited with another couple on a leaf peeping trip just after Columbus Day. Some features were closed but the facility was great with excellent exhibits. Did a couple of tours with the narrators both of which were very entertaining and informative. I especially enjoyed the cannon firing drill. Tried to end the day with a drive up to the top... More

On Monday of Columbus Day weekend we had the pleasure of visiting Fort Ticonderoga with my husband’s sister and 3 of her friends from England who had come to see the fall colors.
