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. My husband and his sister both worked at the Fort in their youth. The last time we had visited the Fort was in 1997 when our daughter’s... More

We really enjoyed the tour of this reconstructed Revolutionary War site. Lots of educational displays, plus period craftsmen making shoes and costumes using 18th century techniques. The tour guide/re-enactor was great. We stayed for about 1 1/2 hours, but could easily have spent another hour.

If you are a history buff and in the area, Fort Ticonderoga is a must. It's admittance fee seems a little steep, but given it is privately owned, and great care has been taken in its restoration, it's worth the price. The drive up Mt. Defiance is an extra fee - it should be included since it plays such a... More

We really enjoyed this visit to the restored fort. Being there you could imagine how things developed in the history of the region. Staff in period costumes with things like a musket demonstration as well as cannon firing. Worth a visit.

I'll be upfront: I love Fort Ticonderoga! There really is no other place quite like it in North America ... a massive stone star fort essentially in the middle of nowhere (although strategically in the middle of it all!). Frankly, it's amazing that this place is still standing and doing so well, it's tough to get the attention and funding... More

The Ft has been restored, the guide is knowledgeable and speaks well. It made the books I had read come alive.
