Fort Ross State Historic Park is a protected historic site in the U.S. state of California. It includes Fort Ross, the former Russian settlement, with the surrounding area comprising the immediate coastline and the redwood forest some distance inland. Most of the buildings of the site are reproductions. The one original structure remaining from the Russian settlement, the commander's house, is a designated National Historic Landmark.

California Department of Parks and Recreation as well as many volunteers put extensive efforts into restoration and reconstruction work in the Fort.
