Take in the view, smell the ocean air, then don’t forget to look at your map! Fort Casey State Park is a unique mixture of open grass, forest, buildings, and bunkers.

Note: Samples of the map are provided here for educational purposes only; the map shown here is not kept up-to-date. The course shown is a Beginner/Intermediate course, and actual controls do not exist in the terrain.

The purpose of providing these navigational and physical ratings below is to provide greater context for how challenging an orienteering course at this venue might be. For example, an advanced-level course at a local city park will be easier to complete than an advanced-level course in the mountains.

Navigational Challenge Rating: 3/10

The open grassy areas at Fort Casey State Park provide great visibility. There is forest here, though it is thick and there are relatively few trails. Orienteers will most likely take advantage of nearby paved paths to get around the map, while taking detours to find controls near buildings or bunkers.


Physical Challenge Rating: 4/10

Fort Casey State Park is made up of one long hill, with some steep areas. However, the heart of the park is fairly flat.
