Fort Hase archaeological site is located along the eastern edge of Mokapu Peninsula.  Evidence of an ancient Hawaiian fishing camp is buried below the grassy surface.  It is likely that the abundant resources on the peninsula drew the inhabitants to the site.  Radiocarbon dating of an old fire pit indicates that the site was inhabited about 600 years ago.
