 Overview
 Description
Two fortifications at the tip of the Napatree Point wildlife preserve. Each of them has a large open top area and some small tunnels and rooms below. The first fortification, closer to the mainland, is larger and has some more interesting tunnels, but both are worth checking out.

Location is publicly accessible on a wildlife preserve. Access is about a mile walk down the beach - there are a lot of thorns and ticks, but getting through to the fort isn't difficult.
