It's a sad, beautiful place. A must see. Wonderful photo ops. A wonderful inside museum. Gift shop, restrooms, and picnic grounds with an inlet view. Outstanding

We stayed in this state park when we moved to the area. The first site we stayed on had an electrical fire in the box where you plug in to and it melted our plug. The host of the day couldn't have been more unhelpful and dis-interested in our plight. We had to go stay in a hotel that night... More

Well I have been to so many different experiences with civil war sites but this one is my favorite. I got to experience this location with just my father. It was truly amazing and hard to put into words the joy I had. There is so much to see as you walk around this site. The map they give you... More

We spent a few days at this Georgia State Park during early October. It was the perfect stopover between Miami, Florida and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The sites for RVs were all "pull-in" sites except one. The sites are rather small and close together but our site was fine for our small travel trailer. The site itself needed some clean-up,...

This park has a lot of history and nature abound - Red tail Hawks/Birds/Dragonflies on steroids (never have we seen Dragons this large) luckily we did not run into Bears or Alligators. They have beautiful modern cabins that you can rent. We rented bikes and rode through the campground (Tents and Rv's) this is... More

Ft. McAllister is an excellent contrast with the brick based Ft. Pulaski out by Savannah Beach. Cool and shaded in summer this area has plenty of picnic tables and has hosted some momentous 4th of July picnic celebrations. The tidal creeks provide an excellent kayaking venue.

Well worth going to. Very educational for all. Recommend reading up on fort before you go. This will help you get more out of your visit.
