Located on the south bank of the Great Ogeechee River, this park is the home of the best preserved earthwork fortification of the Confederacy. The sand and mud earthworks were attacked seven times by Union ironclads, but did not fall until captured in 1864 by Gen. William T. Sherman during his infamous March to the Sea. Nestled among giant live oaks and beautiful salt marsh, this park is a quiet location for camping, hiking, fishing and picnicking. The parks new Civil War museum features an interior designed to resemble a bombproof, containing exhibits and artifacts, a video and gift shop.
