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

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
