I drag my wife to forts most everywhere we go. It was a chilly weekday morning and we were the only ones there, so we had about an hour and a half private tour by one of the most knowledgeable "interpreters" anywhere. Usually it seems...More
This was SUCH a good visit and would absolutely recommend you make an effort to stop by! The staff and reinactors were incredibly nice, attentive and informative. We arrived a little late for the cannon fire and they waited for us to run over to...More
We drive out to Fort Jackson while visiting the Savannah area. Definetly worth a visit if you are interested in seeing first hand a well preserved fort from the Civil War times. The staff in their uniforms of the time were very helpful. On a...More
We visited Old Fort Jackson on our way out of town late on a Sunday afternoon. I was glad we stopped. The exhibits and demonstrations were all very well done. We were there for the 11 a.m. cannon firing, which was a bonus.
My family was entertained. From my oldest one that was actually interested in reading and learning about the fort to the younger boys who were more interested in playing in the flooded areas. We went in July/August after heavy raining. A lot of the fort...More
This is a must visit if you are in the Savannah area. Sadly, this fort is not owned by the National Parks Service, which means it is all privately run. Everyday they shoot off a cannon and go through all the procedures involved. We also...More

It’s fairly close to the historic section of Savannah. It’s probably a 10-15 minute drive, mostly along the same road. Signage could be a bit better so keep your eyes out. Once you turn left off the main road, the fort is about a 2 minute drive. The fort sits right on the river. Fort Pulaski is about another 10-15 minute drive on the same main road if you turn left as you exit Fort Jackson.
