The concrete fortress is located off the beaten track but definitely worth a visit. The landscape is somewhat maintained but other than that the place has been allowed to slowly deteriorate. YOU WILL NEED A FLASHLIGHT to see inside the many rooms. There is no one on site and there is no charge to visit.
Visited in off season so no bugs! No people either. Not a soul to be found, some hurricane damage in area has mostly been cleaned up. Some signage in front of each ruin helps identify and explain some of the buildings. Some areas are quite precarious - keep little kids near you at all times. You can learn more about... 更多
I felt the place is beautiful. I was just a little disappointed that each structure was not labeled with what it was or how each structure was used. Also, we tried to find the portion of the original hospital. I think we found it, but I would have liked that structure to have been marked better.
Thank you for your comment. We hope you will visit again when you are in the area. This fall, we... 更多
Had never heard of this fort, found it on Trip Advisor. So glad we did. Different than any fort we've ever been to. Well maintained with a beautiful stretch of beach in front of it. Great for walking and learning.

This is an interesting place to visit. We mostly use it for access to the beach on the river but It's got some historical appeal. Built for protection during the Spanish American war but never really used. No saftey railings so keep a close eye on your kids
Old fort leftover from the civil war days I think. The mosquito population has taken over the fort, so it makes visiting and any lengthy exploring almost impossible.
The bugs were horrible. We gave it a half-hearted attempt, but could find nothing redeeming. Don't know how this place makes the recommend list.
We're sorry you were here during the height of mosquito season. Please watch for more information as the County sprays... 更多
Directions sparse. Maybe we should have stopped at a visitor center. The place definitely needs restoring, very overgrown. Use bug spray if you get out of the car to trample on the grounds.
