Fun place to spend 30 minutes or so. Lots of great graffiti / ruin porn. Watch your step, especially with children - lots of drop offs and broken glass.

It's a long ride, sure, but the end result is well worth it. You can feel like a kid again, climbing on the batteries, dipping in and out of the rooms underneath them, and genuinely playing outside like we used to before we all became adults and the world went crazy. Our favorite part is the beach on the other... More

Took a little adventure to the fort over the holiday weekend. Pretty cool to see and experience. It's a shame at all the graffiti inside the fort tunnels. Defiantly something to experience though. Make sure to walk down to the beach on the other side of the fort, soooo pretty and calming.

Interesting place out of the way to poke around in. Lots of concrete, old rooms, and remains of a fort never used. Fun to look around if you are out this way. Wouldn't make a special trip out here.

Fort Fremont site is a self guided tour site. There are no attendants / guides present. Interesting in that, unfortunately, without attendants, the area is visited by graffitti artists. No public Toilets beyond a small outhouse/ portable restroom

At the end of scenic Land's End Road is this fascinating bit of ruins. We stumbled upon it while riding our bikes and enjoyed climbing up on the old batteries and looking out across the bay to Parris Island. The fort was built to guard Parris Island during the Spanish-American War, but never saw action. Now only two batteries and... More

My travel companion asked me if I wanted to see this old fort out in the middle of nowhere....well, it was. Built in the late 1800's it was placed to protect that portion of Port Royal Sound, during the Spanish - American War. Apparently, the county has purchased this area, but little more than an open fence surrounds it. Thankfully,... More

We visited here after spending the night with family in Beaufort. The trip was way off the beaten path and we almost missed the turn off to get to this fort, located in the middle of a neighborhood. The fort is large and located on the water, which was deserted and pleasant. There was not a lot of information, but... More
