History buffs who have researched this site before visiting might get some satisfaction. Shutterbugs, if they arrive when the light makes it interesting, might a couple good shots. Otherwise it is unimpressive and borders on creepy. There is a beach access but the beach is also underwhelming. Not worth a special effort, but if you are passing by… Date of... More

If you are history buff you must drive to the end of lands end road and tour the ruins of the fort. Also walk the grounds and go out to the beach s o you can get a perspective on what it was like to be there.

I really like forts and old things, but this isn't protected and, since there is no fee, people can go in and out freely. For honest people, that's good. There is quite the graffiti in the fort, and some are vulgar. There's some cigaretter butts and glass shards from bottles, so be careful of where you step. I would've paid... More

I went out there alone and the warning signs at the gate are a little scary. I didn't stay long because of being concerned about being alone, but it's has interesting remnants of the fort.

Although I am a big fan of military history, there was very little information to be had at the site. The area around the gun emplacements had a chain link fence but it didn't appear there had been much effort to make the site visitor friendly. It would have been interesting to learn why someone felt we were in danger... More

Interesting military history site! I was fun to walk around the building remnants and down to the waterfront. Fortunately, we had done a little research on the site before because unfortunately there isn't a lot of signage around the site explaining what things were and how the fort was made. Overall, a fun little side trip and as a bonus... More

My husband and I woke up on Saturday morning ready for an adventure. On our numerous triips to Hilton Head, SC, we'd heard of St. Helena and said we would leave right away and spend the day. As African American history "buffs," we started with the Penn Center that we located while surfing the internet. After an enjoyable tour there,... More

This fort is very historic. It is fun to be able to walk around the fort and go inside some of the old rooms. When we first came to St. Helena Island this fort was covered in vines and grown up brush, since being taken over by a group to save this fort, they have cleared the brush and vines... More

This is truly a hidden treasure. It is an old fort that is wide open to explore. When I was there, there were 4 local boys playing hide and seek and that was it. It was serene walking around the remains with no other sounds.
