Description

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 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, fishing dock and nature trail. A large picnic area offers river views and playgrounds, while another boat ramp provides access to the Ogeechee River.

RV/premium sites are pull through with water and electricity. Has bathrooms and showers near RV sites however are closed during Covid. You must go further to tent bathrooms for showers. Most RV sites are not very shady but they are well spaced and quiet.

Tent sites have electric but no water but all are very shady. There are 4 clean hot showers nearby that are individual/private unisex.

If you have a site (either tent or RV) on the outer loop, you will see small deer just a few yards from your tent, they are all over the island. Beware of the racoons, they will open food bins.

There is a fort you can self explore, fishing and trails. Some trails are closed due to beetle damage. Very pesky yellow flies on the trails and at the fort by the bay, not a problem at the camp sites.

WIFI only at the park office which is not on the island.

Camping area has key code gate that is locked 24 hours. No area for boondocking.
