Beautiful sites

Beautiful sites here and lots of history. We went at Halloween and they had a fun Halloween party for kids and adults at the common area everyone decorated their sites for contest prizes too.

A peaceful experience

This park is quiet and calm even when it’s busy. There are sites near the salt marshes that offer little to no shade and there are sites away from them that have more shade. The bathrooms are clean and nice with laundry facilities. All sites are pull through with full hook-ups for RVs/trailers. The campground has a short walking trail through the woods while there is another back at the main park. You can also launch boats and kayaks directly from the campground but beware of strong currents and winds if kayaking (be sure to get tidal charts and a map from the checkin desk if you’re adventurous enough to go exploring far). Staying at the campground offers you half price admission to the Fort and museum which is worth visiting. We saw several deer roaming around the campground as well.

Undergoing maintenance from hurricanes

The only reason I gave this campground a 4 instead of 5 stars is because the bathhouse near the tent sites was undergoing renovations and not usable.  We had a good walk to go to the other bathroom.  Also, several trails were closed due to down bridges from the hurricane.  Other than that it was a really pretty park with lots of history.  We enjoyed all the wildlife we saw and the campsites were spaced out with a little vegetation in between each.  There is plenty to do at this campground from trails, museum, fort, water activities…  Also, there is a restaurant at the marina before you come into the park.  We didn't get a chance to stop by, but it was packed out, so I'm assuming it's tasty.  There was an Omelette Cafe about 15 minutes from the park, that had an amazing breakfast for our long ride home.

A world of its own

Ft. McAllister has a variety of camping options. We go a few times a year. Beautiful island.

One of my favorite spots

We try to get to Ft McAllister SP as often as we can. Not too far from Savannah and also close to the other barrier islands. Large, shaded sites, with breezes off the water to keep cool even in summer. hiking, a museum and boat dock. Nice seafood restaurant just outside the park.

Nice Park

park sites were good. trails along the creeks. fishing available with GA license. site floods during rain but quickly dryes up when rained stopped. nice museum and grounds sorounding the fort. we found some pottery in the marsh we turned into the park. would highlyrecomend

Established Historical Campsites

There is access to gorgeous views and awesome activities. Small hiking trails and bike trails make this a great place for families. Restrooms are available at the campsites, as well as stoves and sand areas for tents. RV and tent camping available!

Interesting place to visit

The sites were spacious and easy to maneuver around. Bathroom and showers were very clean and well kept. Visitor Center was really interesting and the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful.

Water and relaxation

Stumbled on this by accident! It takes a bit to get here but it is very nice. Had lots of deer and raccoons around…and depending on the time of year you might see a gator on the drive in. Very relaxing and surrounded by history and water fun. Mosquitos and gnats were a bit prevalent but it is a marsh area.
