395 N Fort Ebey Rd, Coupeville Washington 98239
Fort Ebey was one of the more recent links in the coastal defense system of Puget Sound. The fort was constructed in 1942 and named after the pioneer commander of the 1855 militia stationed on an island in Ebey Slough.
The park is the site of a World War II gun battery which had two six-inch guns at the time of the war. The guns were removed after the war and cut up for scrap. In addition to the gun battery, the fort had observation stations, storage rooms, residences and other facilities to support the fort.
The park features camping, picnicking, hiking, interpretation and beachcombing.
