Fort McAllister has a little bit of everything. You get the history, 4 miles of hiking trails, the river, and camping! The campground is quiet and the campsites are nicely spaced. Water and electric is available as well as restrooms and showers. You can purchase firewood on site for your campfires. There’s pull through sites for trailers/RV’s as well as tent only sites. You can rent kayaks at the boat dock if you’d like. I had plenty of cell reception (Verizon) and the staff in the office were very nice. Site 16 was huge with water and electric. Plenty of trees for hammocks which I love :) The trail to the lookout tower was closed when i visited in Dec 2020 but it was still a nice experience and that just means I have to come back and visit again!
Campsite 14 faces road so less privacy but campground was nice and clean. Showers were clean and warm and family oriented. Boat dock area has couple bench swings that were wonderful relaxing. Deer came close at night.
We enjoyed our visit to Fort Clinch. We tent camped which placed us in the west side of the park, the riverside which we preferred. That side is shadier due to the large oak trees. The bathrooms and showers were squeaky clean and the staff were very helpful. The park is stunning in its beauty. Highly recommended.
We had a great weekend camping at Fort Clinch! We stayed at a tent site near the beach. The bathrooms were nearby and very clean. The campsite included a fire pit, picnic table and potable water. There are no trees/shade at the campsite and lots of gnats and mosquitos if the wind isn’t blowing so be sure to bring repellent.
We toured the fort, hiked some trails, went to the beach and saw lots of deer. It was a great weekend getaway!
Didn’t take the history tour, but loved the southern charm and wildlife throughout the campground. We rode our bikes all over but the most enjoyable ride was the mile of causeway through the salt marshes. Campsite was level and the grounds were full but quiet. The only wifi was at the office/museum, so we would ride there on bikes and sit on the porch watching the visitors and taking care of business. We were visited by a snake and cute little gecko. Wishing we could have stayed much longer.
Very friendly folks and willing to help out if you need anything. We were there during Covid so I didn’t use the restrooms or laundry. Brother in law said restroom was clean at park. Nice little fishing lake with a fountain. Concrete pull through parking pads. Level. Grassy areas kept neatly. Lovely Live Oaks for shade. We did a day trip to Cumberland Island and road Ferry over. Dock only about 15 minutes away. Everyone wearing masks on ferry with limitations on how many could ride.
We really loved this park. Do not leave any food or your cooler out. We had visits from deer everyday. The campground is at the back of this park and Sonia the boat launch. We put our kayaks in and went paddling up the salt marshes. Very peaceful day. Be sure to visit the fort. It is very cool to walk around and see the underground bunkers. So much history here I never knew about.
Arrived here for a three-night tent stay at spot #53, after a stay at Crooked River. The entrance to the campground is through a long causeway surrounded by beautiful marshes. The campground attendants are tops. There is a nice office/souvenir shop at the entrance to the site. Wood bundles are paid for in cash at a small shed; just pay for what you take and place the money through the slot in the tin can. Site #53 is near the rest rooms which were spacious and individually apportioned. Lots of deer sightings both day and night. Armadillos roam the grounds too. However, the terror of the campground are the very courageous raccoons that will approach your picnic table to steal your food while you're sitting on the other side! As I read in some other review at another site, these raccoons are straight-up terrorists. Couldn't kayak because the facility was closed due to COVID, bummer. Lots of history, some gnarly bugs, some unfortunate rain… may come back.
