Fort Foster

Pocahontas Rd.
Kittery Point, ME, 03904, United States
TEL: (207) 439-0452

The land of this 88-acre park was purchased by the federal government in 1872, eventually becoming a defense outpost for the Naval Shipyard in response to the Spanish-American War. Off the coast of Crescent Beach, the park is open to guests and vehicles from Memorial Day to Labor Day for a small fee. With crumbling cement forts from the World War II era and a rocky shoreline, the grounds have a historic atmosphere. Several paths are available for scenic hiking. During the off-season, guests are permitted to walk through the grounds for free.
