Combine camping with a walk through history at Fort McAllister State Park. This puptacular facility offers your choice of campsites. Reserve a backcountry spot for $10 per night, electric sites for $27 to $32, or pioneer camping for $50. There are also shelters and cabins available here. A few of the cabins here allow up to two dogs for an additional charge of $50 per pet. A $5 charge for parking also applies in addition to the camping fees. You'll be able to enjoy different recreational activities in the property.
Many of the campsites are near Redbird Creek in the Savage Island part of the park. This section has a playground and hookups for family camping. Backcountry spots can be found west of the creek and are walk-in, tent-only sites. Once you find your space, explore the salt marsh, Spanish moss, and live oaks. Go hiking on the Magnolia Nature Trail and look for some of the birds that live or travel through here. This area is part of Georgia's Colonial Coast Birding Trail. You can also walk around the well-preserved Confederate fort. Learn Civil War history as you wander among canons, bombproof barracks, and a furnace. Head to the boat dock and fishing pier to cast your line in search of bass and other fish. Avid anglers will be glad to know there's a full-service marina here.
Georgia state parks, including Fort McAllister, let you bring your four-footed friends with you, but they have to stay on-leash and under your supervision at all times. Keep them out of all buildings and away from swimming areas. Scoop and throw out any doggie waste.
