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

This place is great! I love to explore abandoned places especially if their is history to it. But it's the legends of it and of the surrounding area that really drew me in. Wasn't brave enough to go into the rooms for fear of disturbing some ones "home". But maybe one I will. I stop here every time I'm down... More

For those who enjoy history, this is a must see. We accidentally came across the Fort while out for a leisurely drive and were glad to have found it.

We didn't stay at this site long because of all the mosquitoes. We were just getting eaten up. This seems like a forgotten site. You are exploring at your own risk. Still, wish I could have gotten more photos.

Stopped to see the fort during a visit to Beaufort just on a lark Its a bit of a drive to get to the fort location, which is OK, I was surprised that parking was so limited (free), this fort is not a state park. Now I don't mind a few gnats buzzing around but if I had stayed much... More

While driving to Hunting Island, I noticed a sign that pointed to Fort Fremont so I decide to take a look. After driving a long way I found this old abandon fort. Interesting that this fort was built during the Spanish-American War. Not all that much to see except for the old concert gun emplacements. Not sure the long drive... More

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.
