Vuosina 1940 - 2000 alueella toimi puolustusvoimien varikko ja rannikkotykistölinnake. Puolustusvoimien jäljiltä alueella on tie- ja polkuverkosto, sähkö ja vesi, useita purettujen rakennusten pohjia, laituri, tykkien alustoja ja bunkkereita. Rannikkotykistölinnakkeen toiminnan muistoksi on pystytetty muistomerkki. Rakennuksista on jäljellä yksi asuinrakennus sekä vartiotupa ulkorakennuksineen. Alueella on luontopolku ja hyvä luonnonuimaranta..

Under åren 1940 - 2000 verkade försvarsmaktens depå och kustartillerifort på området. Försvarsmakten har lämnat efter sig ett väg- och stignät, elektricitet och vatten, flera husgrunder, en brygga, artilleribotten och bunkrar. Ett minnesmärke har rests till minne av kustartillerifortets verksamhet. Endast ett boningshus är kvar av byggnaderna samt vaktstugan med sina gårdsbyggnader. Det finns en naturstig på området och en fin naturbadstrand. .

Fort Sommarö was a military fortress during 1940-2000 with 3-4 cannons, barracks, storage buildings, shelters, etc. Today it is a protected recreational area. Some decaying buildings and foundations from the fortress time can still be seen in the area. The former guardhouse is used as a place to stay, mainly for groups or school classes. The nature is typical for the area. Smooth rocky forest hills with pine, spruce and some birch. There is also a lot of roads, pathways, a small lake and a shallow sand beach.
