The road connecting Fort Jackson to the Highway was a bit hidden. Then you have to pass a Chemical Plant, but when you reach Fort Jackson, it is a well maintained site. Workers are dressed in period appropriate attire. The open fields allowed my young children to burn off some energy. The hands on story telling was both educational and... More

This is a hidden gem, Well maintained fort on the Savannah River. THe guide was dressed in period clothes and very well versed in the history of this fort. He made it interesting and fun. I got to see the cannon fired. It was so much fun we returned 4 days later for the MLK day celebration. We got to... More

The Fort is located near the city of Savannah - a bit confusing to get to but well worth the visit. (It's next a chemical plant - not someplace you would expect a Fort.) There are exhibits showing the life of the soldiers. We were lucky enough to come when they had demonstrations going on. Great, and humorous, job of... More

We visited Fort Jackson and it was interesting. Our guide was very informative and could tell us things not only about Fort Jackson, but also Fort Pulaski and how they compared and contrasted with each other. We were free to look at our leisure as well. Then the guide also shot off a cannon which was interesting. Made us appreciate... More

We stopped here in the middle of the afternoon, just in time to watch a cannon fired off. After wandering around the fort for a while we were fortunately enough to find a presentation of the history of Fort Jackson AND another cannon fireing. So much history.

This place is a few miles out of Savanna’s historic district but it worth your visit (you can purchase a 2-day 3-attractions ticket for this place which includes also the train and children museums). We spent almost an hour outside taking part in a re-enactment which included firing old rifles and a cannon by the actors (the kids loved it).... More

Only a 15 minute drive from downtown Savannah, Fort Jackson is worth a visit. It is on the river with a tidal moat and has interesting displays. But, the real draw is the reenactments. Check their website or call to confirm the reenactment times. Actors in period uniforms reenact historic events that occurred in and around Fort Jackson and you... More

Ever since I was a small kid I've been drawn to history. My dad used to take me to different historical spots all over NC and SC when I was little, but we never made it down to Savannah. During my recent wedding anniversary trip to the area my wife and I stopped by Old Fort Jackson. It's a small... More

Visiting Old Fort Jackson was a wonderful addition to our vacation. We are a military veteran family and enjoy visiting historic battlefields and forts. The fort is small compared to others we've seen; however, the collection of artifacts and the knowledge of the park employees was outstanding. Old Fort Jackson is only a few minutes outside of Savannah and well... More
