Fort Ticonderoga is more than just a restored war fort. It's a premier tourist destination in New York. The Fort, a family fun outdoor location for all ages, offers visitors an array of special events, weekly activities, demonstrations and much more!

Visit Fort Ticonderoga and experience some of the greatest moments of America's history! Fort Ticonderoga is the site of strategic military significance in the 18th century, landmark preservation in the 19th century, and monumental restoration in the 20th century. Today, Fort Ticonderoga is an independent non-profit educational organization, a thriving learning campus, a museum, and a major cultural destination in one of America's most beautiful settings.

Fort Ticonderoga sits on 2,000 acres of picturesque landscape alongside Lake George and Lake Champlain.

Recreational activities that highlight Fort Ticonderoga's rich historic landscape include a scenic battlefield hiking trail and canoe rentals that provide a unique perspective of the Fort's story and exquisit natural beauty.

Behind-the-scenes tours and special events give once-in-a-life time experiences to visitors.
