The Amelia River runs through the park, and a campground with full facilities rests near its banks. Another campground is near the Atlantic Ocean.

  • The first full weekend of every month the Fort has Federal Garrisons Events. This was a particularly good day for the soldiers to be dressed in wool because it was very cold out. You could smell fires...  more »

  • Very interesting and they have reenactment on the weekends. Please check schedule for days. We also found they have camp grounds and beach entrances.
  • Amazing brickwork- arches and narrow spiral staircase. Right on the water. Very pretty.
  • The fort was an absolutely fascinating experience, it is well kept and it is very neat to see all the history in the fort. It is a bit pricey to pay an entrance fee and then another fee to enter the fort. Overall a very nice and peaceful place.
  • Great people Great place sunrise & sunset
  • Love this place and the history behind it. Very educational for children and even adults. The staff there's very friendly and know what their talking about. GREAT food and nice campground.
