Skidaway Island State Park
Fort McAllister Historic State Park is located on the banks of the Ogeechee River south of Savannah, Georgia. This historic park showcases earthwork fortification of the Confederacy. Union soldiers attacked the earthworks seven times but did not fall until 1864 ending General William T. Sherman's "March to the Sea." The Civil War museum contains artifacts, a video and gift shop. In 1970 the fort was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
The campground is a beautiful location bordered by tidal Redbird Creek with giant live oaks and Spanish moss. A boat ramp provides access to the Ogeechee River. We camped here in December 2017 for a few days in our Travato Van and loved walking around the park and seeing the wildlife. The sunsets across the marsh were amazing.
