Fort Ticonderoga’s 2020 Campaign Season and Daily Visitation have been postponed. NY Gov. Cuomo has announced “NY Forward,” a staged reopen plan in response to COVID-19. Although the situation may change, Fort Ticonderoga anticipates that our gates will once again open to visitors when the North Country enters Phase 4 of the “NY Forward” plan in early July. Our priority is the safety and health of our employees, community, and visitors. Stay tuned for developments.
