This was a self guided tour but there was a speaker that we were able to hear before we went off to explore. He was a cute and very informative man! He worked at Fort Pulaski previously and after retiring started to volunteer here now. I love anything to do with the Civil War and found this worth the trip.

We camped here for five nights. Not a lot of frills here but what is here is clean and well set up. Campsites are really big. We are here in a popup and a small A-frame. They were even nice enough to come from the office ad put our assigned spaces on the two assigned spots. Bathrooms are older but... More

The location is nice and as it was on our way to Savannah we decided to visit this Fort. Nice enough to spend an hour but not more.

There happened to be a school group there the day we visited, so we benefited from the activities that they had planned for the school group and they even fired the big canon, which was super cool! The students loved it!

Very well kept fort. Brought my two teenage sons here, and they loved it. The bunkers and canons are amazing. They have started visiting as many forts as they can as a result.

We happened to visit this fort on Super Sunday (museum entry fee waived) which made a fun visit even sweeter! The fort is the first one I have seen (my son too!) where the "fort" is the Earth! Clever idea! There was a FABULOUS character actor at the entry of the fort that explained all the gear the soldiers had... More
