  • We were taking my in-laws to Savannah, and on the way, saw the historic marker signs for Ft. King George. Now, being history buffs, and also British, they wanted to know what this was all about, so it...  more »
  • We drove up from St. Simons and stopped for a visit. The 10 minute film is interesting. The fort, a short walk from the Visitor's Center, is great. Well done job of reimaging of what it was like in it...  more »
  • Toured this fort with a large group. It is a very interesting Fort, unlike many I’ve seen in the south. I was told that they periodically have re-enactments that are very interesting.  more »

  • Really enjoyed visit. Quite unlike in design anything we had visited before. A lot to see. Well maintained and laid out. Lots of helpful information. Staff not very interested. Only one there (it was quiet ) and she made little contact (so unusual for historical sites where we had always found staff so interested and helpful. ) this lady preferred her mobile.
  • If you are interested at all in American history this is a must-see. It is atmospheric, well laid out and maintained and there is plenty of historic detail in the signage. We had never seen a structure like this and enjoyed exploring it all, appreciating its position on the water. A good nature trail too. British troopers stationed here will have experienced little that is familiar! Staff more morose and indifferent than those at other historic sites, however and it is a bit off the beaten track but worth the trouble!
  • Great place to learn about Georgia's early history. My kids, ages 6 and 3 loved it. My son already wants to go again.
  • A gem of a State Historical Site. School day today: photo inside blockhouse. Scots Heritage Weekend. Demos and battle on March 10.
  • We visited today, Dec 30th, 2017. Loved the fort and museum. Learned more about the coastal forts here. Looking forward to visiting other forts. Touring the area makes history come alive.
