Little is left of the fort today. The earthworks that remain as part of the park are in fact the original revetments used prior to the fort proper being built around them. At the peak of Fort C.F. Smith's military activity, it covered the upper 1/3 of the hill and was heavily armed. The fort boasted 4 Parrott 20 pounder guns, 2 3.8" James rifled canons, 4 4" rifled guns, 13 12 pounders, and 2 6 pounder smoothbores. The mass of artillery was supported by 4000 riflemen.
