Fort Ebey State Park, a 645-acre camping park on Whidbey Island, was originally built as a coastal defense fort in World War II. Concrete platforms mark the gun locations. The park has three miles of saltwater shoreline on the Strait of Juan de Fuca, a freshwater lake for fishing, and miles of hiking and biking trails. The park stands on the site of a World War II gun battery which had two six-inch guns in place during the war. The guns were later removed and scrapped.

Fort Ebey State Park is a 2020 Park Improvement Project Grant recipient.
