Fort McAllister State Park, GA

 mcall1

Fort McAllister is a convenient stop for travelers up or down I-95. It's also not too far from downtown Savannah, although Skidaway Island SP is closer. The CG has 52 RV spaces and 12 tent-only sites. A major attraction of the park is Fort McAllister, well worth a visit. There are several miles of hiking trails, and kids have fun riding their bikes on the paved campground roads.

We love the afternoon sun on Site #2. It's on e of the few more open sites, and looks out over a broad marsh.

This is very typical of the entire campground - all sites are well-shaded. Most are pull-through sites and offer water and electric hook-ups.

For boaters, there is a boat launch and a dock where you can tie up your boat during your stay. This would appear to be a great area for boating and kayaking - lots of inlets and estuaries.

For the kids there's a nice playground, and there are two pavilions in the campground, one screened-in.

Modern bath-houses are heated and offer hot showers and laundry facilities.

A few sites are designed for tenters, with raised pads to keep you a little drier in wet weather. These sites also have water and electricity.

Fort McAllister is the best-preserved of the earthen forts built to defend the Confederacy. Some of the interior rooms below the earthworks are open for visitors.
