This is a truly amazing piece of history. Watch the short film in the visitor center before you walk the grounds. Well worth the time!

“Lovely grounds. Interesting history.”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

I've passed through Saint Simons Island before. This time I took the time to see the sites. Besides offering a lovely park-like setting, it was very educational. The early Spring weather was delightful (no mosquitos or gnats, yet), with the azalea and dogwood in full bloom. Besides walking the grounds and reading the excellent placards, the bookstore and the park ranger offered a wealth of information to extend my appreciation of the place and the region. I also did an onsite watercolor in my sketchbook of the grounds.

“Great history”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

The grounds are beautiful here. We didn't have a tour guide so we read the plaques and took our time walking to each site. I love history so I enjoyed this very much. You can take as much time as you want and enjoy learning about the area.

“Impressive bit of history”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Being from Florida, we have visited St. Augustine and their fort many times, but we never knew about the historical significance of Fort Frederica. This was quite an impressive site! The property is expansive (prepare to walk), and you can still see the foundations of the original homes built in the early 1700's by the British settlers as well as a few standing structures. An enormous amount of archaeology has been performed at this place. The museum is small but informative, and has a short movie that gives you the history that occurred here. The fee is $3 for anyone over 16, which was a great deal.

“So Peaceful”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Go and enjoy a relaxing time at this historical park. The view of the water is beautiful and there are multiple spots to just sit and enjoy the scenery. Lots of birds, squirrels and deer run freely throughout the park as you enjoy the shade of the big, beautiful trees. A place for learning history yes, but very relaxing as well.
