“Haunted Fort”
Review of Fort Fremont

Fort Fremont
Reviewed January 28, 2015

Wish there was less graffiti on walls, but to consider this a place built for the Spanish American War it's impressive. I have done some studying about early forts so was able to explain some of the area. Wish there was more informational signs. Many dark areas so bring a flashlight. Be nice if they, cleared the brush from the front firing range.

The children will love this! An opportunity to climb and explore! Occasionally there are unwanted visitors/vagrants, but definitely NOT the norm. This is a peaceful beach community, with many lovely homes and "Friends of Ft Fremont". My teenage daughter and friend explored every cavern of the fort in daylight hours. They loved it. It is a fantastic location for photos, and even beach photos. It is located directly on the Port Royal Sound. Do bring bug spray for the warm months!

This is a good place to loose yourself. It is steeped in history.
The bad thing is some people didn't respect the beauty and left a lot of graffiti, it is sad.
Take your bug spray and explore away.

The fort itself was fascinating, as we explored the fort's interior we stumbled upon a couple of homeless gentlemen who were calling Fort Fremont home. Bring a flashlight.

Don't expect an old fashioned fort, this isn't it. This place seems to be built into the side of a mountain.Ruins of a fort abandoned in early 1900s. There really isn't any thing to guide you around this site. Fine place to explore, but we had to go online to research exactly what we had seen.
