Fort McAllister Historic Park
3894 Fort McAllister Road
Richmond Hill, U.S. States 31324
Located on the bank of the Great Ogeechee River south of Savannah, this park is the home of the best-preserved earthwork fortification of the Confederacy.
The sand and mud earthworks were attacked seven times by Union ironclads, but did not fall until captured in 1864 by Gen. William T. Sherman during his "March to the Sea." Nestled amongst giant live oaks and beautiful salt marsh, this park is a quiet location for camping, hiking, fishing and picnicking. The park's Civil War museum features an interior designed to resemble a bombproof, containing exhibits and artifacts, a video, and gift shop. Three cottages sit on stilts at the marsh edge, surrounded by palm trees and palmettos. The campground is bordered by tidal Redbird Creek, a boat ramp, and a nature trail.
