Fort Frederick State Park

Park - State

Editorial Review

The state park includes the restored Fort Frederick, built to help defend the area during the the French and Indian War (1754-1763). Fort Frederick is considered unique for the period because of its large size and stone wall. The fort survived the 1763 Ottawa Indian uprising and served as a prison for British and Hessian soldiers during the American Revolution.

Activities and amenities at the park include historical reenactments, a boat launch, boat rentals, cross country skiing, campfire programs, campsites, a camp store, fishing, flat water canoeing, a hiking trail and picnic and playground areas.
