Would go many more times, great family oriented place. Also great for pictures. You may need a flashlight though.

secluded beaches, interesting historical site, nice place for younger children to play in water and many shaded spots for them to rest as well. great picnic place for families, off the beaten path kinda place, really far out of town but worth the drive

Don't go here with high expectations. Pretty much like any Fort, remains left behind of some battle. Word of caution don't wear sandals, I wish I hadn't. You enter and visit at your own risk, there is no one attending the place. If it's hot take water, in fact I would not visit in hot summer months. A local recommended... More

There is little of the fort left and even less to explain what you're looking at. There is a beach there and a children's play area. It was a long way out of our way and generally a big disappointment.

Interesting ruins and path to rustic beach access. Too bad some there is some graffiti on walls. It is in the process of preservation though. Make sure you have spray for the "no-see-ums"

We loved Fort Freemont. It was creepy and huge but worth seeing. It's nice that you can go in and explore. Yes it's just out there and has graffiti but it is an interesting part of history. See Fort Fremont and then on the way back to St Helena Island stop at the Chapel of Ease. A spooky fun day!!!

Read an interesting article about Fort Fremont that told how it was obsolete by the time it was completed, never saw any military action, so was decommissioned in 1901. The 70 acre fort was left to decay and vandalism until Beaufort County bought the current 15 acres in 1989 to preserve it as a public park. The structures are a... More

Stopped by in the "off season" on a foggy, rainy day. It was creepy, but definitely cool. Make sure you research the Fremont ghost stories too. It's a bit of a drive to the park. Make sure you put the right address in the GPS, because we got a little turned around trying to find it.

It is a very interesting site to see. Very hard to imagine how this structure would have been built way back then. It could be more interesting if there were some sort of building or use of part of the structure as informartion about what it housed, pictures of the site in use. Fort McAllister is a good example of... More

Wish there was less graffiti on walls, but to consider this a place built for the Spanish American War it's impressive. I have done some studying about early forts so was able to explain some of the area. Wish there was more informational signs. Many dark areas so bring a flashlight. Be nice if they, cleared the brush from the... More
