Daily 7am – 10pm
Admission adults $9, seniors (62) $8, youth (6-17) $5


Head west up the Ogeechee River at red 98 about 7 miles. Dock at Fort McAllister Marina. The current can be strong here so it is preferable to time the tides. The park entrance is about 1/2 mile bike ride from the marina.

Alternatively, if you have family staying at the park, you can turn just north of green 99 and head up Redbird Creek. Anchor about 3 miles up the creek just past the docks on your left. Do not go further or you may run aground. Dinghy to the park’s dock about 1/2 mile upstream. This dock is for the use of park guests only but the park has advised that you can tie up to it if you are visiting a paying guest.
