You can walk around the park along a public foot path adjacent to the river/water but to actually see anything you need to pay an entry fee to the park which was quite reasonable considering the amount of things to look at and the enthusiasm of the Rangers.

Yes, $15 fee to enter fort, pay that at visitors center, then you take a self guided towards on grounds and through barracks. Really interesting place, completely worth it, 15 min bike ride from inner harbor

You can into a museum and around a fenced area of the dirt free of charge. To go through the fort area, there is a charge.

Yes, there is limited things to do around the grounds. It's better to pay the entrance fee and have access to grounds and what's inside. Thank you

There is limited access to the grounds for those without a paid admission. All the most interesting things to see/do are accessible to those who pay. It costs a lot to maintain our national parks, so you can feel good about spending the money!

Yes, there is a fee. Stop at the visitor’s center and get the wristband that will serve as the entrance paid notification.

The park grounds is free. There is a charge for the fort $15 and it is worth it. They change the flag twice a day which you can participate in. It is a great experience. Must do site to see.
