It was fantastic to visit such a piece of history and walk where the soldiers walked so long ago. It felt a bit eerie underneath almost melancholy as we saw where the soldiers ate and slept. One can imagine the fear they must have felt as they were attacked.

With the lighthouse being closed we went to Fort Pulaski which we found to be well worth it. I enjoy history more than my wife but she liked it too. Very good tour from a volunteer tour guide who was excellent. Beautiful day , great weather and a very interesting presentation that thoroughly enjoyed.

I enjoyed two visits to the park--one with a large group who were looking for birds, and the second with my husband. He and I visited the small visitor's center and the fort. Very interesting. The park was closed for quite a while after Hurricane Matthew flooded the area, but it's back up and running. Good views of the island... More

Even though this fort was built to protect Savannah 30 years before the Civil War, it is most famous for its connection to the Civil War. The history as well as its construction is fascinating. Let your imagination go back in time as you tour one of the most haunted structures in the U.S. I have carried school groups here... More

The Fort was incredible, it covers a lot more area than you would think... we took both tours and highly recommend them. The nature tour focused on the outside of the fort and construction while the guided tour inside the fort was a lesson in history... both were great.

It's a ways from Savannah, but worth the drive. The Visitor's Center has a museum and gift shop. The area surrounding the fort is beautiful and walking to it is enjoyable. On all sides of the fort are demilunes which were added to absorb the shock of the cannons from a nearby fort occupied by opposing forces. Inside the fort... More

I didn't expect much but it turned out to be very interesting. Well worth the drive from Savannah. You can use your National Park senior pass.

The Fort is still recovering from Hurricane Matthews which had covered the entire island back in October. It's always amazing to see how much engineering was done to build the forts almost 200 years ago. This is a truly a grand piece of engineering. Although it was bombed in the Civil War battle, the main structure is pretty much intact,... More

As a Georgia and Military historian, published author and newspaper columnist, and father of three boys....it was always a pleasure to take them to Fort Pulaski... They loved to explore the tunnels linking the ordinance bunkers outside the fort....in case they blew up the fort wouldnt.... My parents and family members loved getting a tour of the fort as it...
