We loved the self-paced tour of the property and the museum in the visitor center was very informative!
Beautiful setting. Excellent camping experience. We'd definitely come back. Very very dog friendly. Easy walks in the woods, down to the fishing pier and boat dock, up to the park office (1mi), around the very interesting remnants of the fort, and more scenic trails. Many sites are set nicely apart while others are fairly close together making them very convenient... More
Staff were very helpful, however the VIP staff member who took us on the tour could have spent more time on his stories. We felt rushed and his stories sometimes needed some history behind them for the kids in the group to understand. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The grounds were in wonderful condition and there were... More
A small group of friends and I recently visited this park for its backcountry camping. The staff is WONDERFUL and the park is marvelously maintained. There are two sites available with less than a three mile, flat hike to either. (There are also many drive to and RV spots in a separate area of the park.) Both sites are located... More
Beautiful fort. Rolling hills, beautiful water view and plenty of people to answer questions. Great place to walk and bike ride. You can bike ride to the camp ground and if you get lucky you might see some gators on the way. Great for adults and children.
The fort has been carefully restored to an impressive state. Once visitors have viewed the film, it is very easy to take oneself back in time when touring the fort. This afternoon we were delighted to meet a uniformed soldier (complete with musket and fixed bayonet) who answered some of our questions. This attraction is well worth the price of... More
We are blessed to live close enough to visit frequently. The museum is interesting, but the best part is the restored bunkers and getting to walk around and explore on our own. There are frequent re-enactments and docent volunteers during these times are informative. Our favorite part is riding bikes and then walking the Redbird Creek trail, a three mile... More
WAs another experience where we had no expectations but thoroughly enjoyed all that the fort had to offer. Just added another layer to the developing layers of history of the Savannah area.
On the Ogeechee River as it empties into Ossabaw Sound...lies Fort McAllister. Built by the Confederates to protect the southern approaches to Savannah, it repelled all attempts to take it until Sherman arrived at the end of 1864. It has been carefully restored and has a very interesting museum. But what I found even more attractive was its lovely natural... More
Really interesting tour of the fort from 1812 to the civil war. If you go on Saturday they fire two cannons and musket firings. Wonderful history.
