The main attraction to Fort Frederick State Park is the stone star fort built for the French and Indian War. Built in 1756 the Fort’s stone wall and two barracks have been restored to their 1758 appearance. Historic exhibits are in the Fort, barracks, Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Museum and Visitor Center. The fort barracks are open seven days a week from Memorial Day to Labor Day and on the weekends in the spring and fall, when staff and volunteers dress in period clothing and occupy the fort, demonstrating daily life in the 18th century. The park also has fishing, campsites, flat water canoeing, hiking trails and more.
