The fort is very well maintained and a neat piece of history. Parking was easy and we quickly saw the fort.

Visited on a boiling hot day in June. Great atmospheric fort that is really well presented. On the day we went it was very quiet with no activities which allowed us to explore the whole site uninterrupted. Well worth a couple of hours if you are visiting the island as it's another good presentation of US history

Took the ferry over to tour this fort also. It has a lot of walking but is very nice. Enjoyed walking around and exploring what life was like for them. There is a small museum also to go through.

Our family has enjoyed visiting the forts over the years. The tour is self guided and easy to follow. There is a lot of history here. Unfortunately, Fort Gaines is not as well kept as other historical sites. The site needs better preserved before it is no longer tourable.

Went with our 4 boys, ages 6 to 13. They enjoyed exploring every bit of the fort. The museum was air conditioned to give us a nice break from the heat. Several items were on display from when the fort was in use.
