More about Fort McAllister: Located close to I-95 south of Savannah on the banks of the Ogeechee River, this scenic park showcases the best-preserved earthwork fortification of the Confederacy. The earthworks were attacked seven times by Union ironclads but did not fall until 1864—ending General William T. Sherman’s “March to the Sea.” Visitors can explore the grounds with cannons, a hot shot furnace, bombproof barracks, palisades, and more, while a Civil War museum contains artifacts, a video, and a gift shop.
Nestled among giant live oaks, Spanish moss, and salt marsh, this park is a beautiful location for camping, fishing, boating, and picnicking. Seven cabins sit on stilts near the marsh, surrounded by palm trees and palmettos. The shaded campground is bordered by tidal Redbird Creek, a boat ramp, a fishing dock, and a nature trail. A large picnic area offers river views and playgrounds, while another boat ramp provides access to the Ogeechee River.
