I have recently stayed at the river campground at the park. My site was amazing and I was very close to the river. I stayed for a few days and if the weather would have stayed nice, I would have stayed longer. Birds everywhere, I had an armadillo wandering around my campsite at night,I loved it, and the deer came out at dusk. I enjoyed walking the beach, and the many nature trails the park offers, as well as the informative tour of the Fort itself. The road into the park is very beautiful, a canopy of old moss covered trees that make for an excellent photo op! Down one of the trails, on top of a post in an osprey nest, an owl was setting on her eggs and lots of folks were getting their cameras out! I will be back for sure, great area!
