We arrived around 10:00 am and went for a guided Ranger tour at 10:30. It was very informative.....we really enjoyed our visit.

We wanted to enjoy the fort but found it lacking compared to other forts we've visited. A lot of the site description displays were empty. It's a shame because the story of this fort is very interesting. They must really be short on funds. The trails were an added benefit because my family enjoys hiking but the attack of the... More

We visited today and had a really nice time. Interesting place that not only has the fort but also visitor center and trails and other stuff. We didn't do everything partly due to heat and running out of time but will return. The fort is interesting and you can walk all around the top of it, views are very nice.... More

Spectacular place to spend the day viewing a Fort that served as the site of a quick , decisive Union battle during the Civil War. The grounds are gorgeous and give several amazing vantage points of the water way surrounding the fort. Nature trails lead to a lighthouse and the visitors center is packed with informative material. If you are... More

The fort was amazing to see. The cannons all around the walls peering through the holes in the fort we neat. The quarters and mess and some other rooms were still set up as well to get a glimpse into everyday fort life. We spent several hours walking around the fort and touring the visitors center. We went in July... More

This is a great place to visit while in Savannah or Tybee Island. But be sure to take plenty of insect repellant. This is a good sized Fort and there is a lot to explore and learn. Because of its size and lots of “secret places” plan on at least a few hours there. Even on hot days the constant... More

History is everywhere! Beautiful landscape with a lot of walking. It was hot outside so I recommend you go through the fort first then watch the 20min video is the visitor center where the air conditioning is. Overall loved it!
