Fort McAllister saw considerable Civil War action during General William T. Sherman's March to the Sea. Located on the banks of the Ogeechee River, the site contains a mix of salt marsh and forested habitats and also showcases the best-preserved earthwork fortification of the Confederacy. Other features include boats ramps, docks and a fishing pier, campsites, cottages, picnic areas, museum, playground, and nature trails.
Painted bunting, wood duck, northern harrier, bald eagle, osprey, wood stork, roseate spoonbill.
Painted buntings are often seen in late spring through summer along the causeway. Look for migrating warblers during spring and fall migrations, bald eagles in winter, ospreys in spring and summer, and northern harriers winging low over the marsh in winter.
