Stop at Publix on your way in. There's not much in the way of grocery stores near the park. The lady who checked us in was extremely nice & helpful. The sites on the right as you pull in are marsh front and relatively big. As they face west, the sunsets are beautiful. As you enter, there is firewood for... More

Ft McAllister is a Richmond Hill and Georgia state gem! We travel here often to walk through the fort, go on a hike, fish from the pier, or camp in the spacious grounds. The staff is friendly and accommodating. If you go to the Fort, make sure to watch the video in the museum area first. It is very well... More

Thus is a very quiet, secluded campground on the shore of a large salt marsh. There is a boat launch and large picnic area. There are some "cottages" that are very large. We were camping in the campground, but I would recommend checking the cottages out for groups.

I have been to this park several times and each time is a wonderful visit. I love the museum's interpretive displays and the video on the history of the fort. The fort itself is impressive and you can truly picture life for the men who served there so long ago. The staff are friendly and helpful!

The Campgrounds at Fort McAllister State Park is well laid out with spacious pull thru sites. Restrooms are clean and well kept. This is 10 miles off I-95 so it makes an enjoyable overnight stopover going north or south. Plan on taking a hike, do some geocaching, tour Fort McAllister, do the Junior Range program. You could easily spend 2... More

Every campground is well situated - far away from other campers and with nice views. Some spots are tucked into pine forest - others front on marsh. Nice park headquarters, lovely trails. I will defiinitely return.

Nice big sites, most are pull thru, electric and water with one dump station on way out. They let you pick from available sites based on your size rig. The one of two bath houses near us was newer and nice and clean with one regular shower and one h/c shower, and 3 toilets, it was also heated. Good water... More

You don’t have to wish upon a star or wait for a cow to jump over the moon for a beautiful view. You only have to travel to Fort McAllister State Park. You can visit with the Garrison Cat or laugh as your dog pulls you through the fort from one lovely historical spot to another. A soul can catch... More

Traveled with small camper trailer. When we arrived to campground with my reservation we were told they had no more RV sites so given a tent site instead. Good thing I have a tiny camper. Brought our kayaks- took them off the dock to find "shark tooth island." Found the low tide sand bar but found no shark teeth. Campground... More
