Go: Weekend Waterway Walks

Ft McAllister

Sunday Nov. 12, Nov. 19, Nov. 26

Ft. McAllister State Park

10 am – noon

Enjoy a hike with rangers along the beautiful waterways that surround Ft. McAllister. Learn about the differences between the brackish and freshwater ecosystems and the things that call them home. A must for bird-watchers and nature lovers, guests will have the opportunity to see a wide range of wildlife among the marshes.

Nestled among giant live oaks, Spanish moss and salt marsh, this park is a beautiful location for camping, fishing, boating and picnicking. Seven cabins sit on stilts near the marsh, surrounded by palm trees and palmettos. The shaded campground is bordered by tidal Redbird Creek, a boat ramp, fishing dock and nature trail. A large picnic area offers river views and playgrounds, while another boat ramp provides access to the Ogeechee River.
