Fort Frederica National Monument


Georgia's fate was decided in 1742 when Spanish and British forces clashed on St. Simons Island. Fort Frederica's troops defeated the Spanish, ensuring Georgia's future as a British colony. Today, the archeological remnants of Frederica are protected by the National Park Service.

Awesome national park! 100% FREE... no parking or entry fees. Archaeologists working on site, love to talk to guests about their finds... Free Junior Archaeologist sessions for kids... Dogs are welcome... Picnic areas... Knowledgeable, welcoming staff, volunteers and rangers. It can be very hot and muggy with LOTS of bugs in certain areas.. There are no drinking fountains away from the information center, so plan accordingly and don't forget the bug spray!

I love National Parks. Fort Fredrica is full of some very important history dealing with the conflict between England and Spain for control of Georgia. The activities for kids is good, and there are some ruins of the original fort and town that have been preserved. Be Sure NOT to go during dear fly season. They bite, and it hurts. Call ahead if you're not sure.

This is a beautiful place to visit! We've been at least 6 times. The history is interesting (be sure to watch the video in the little theater), the bathrooms are good & there's lots of room for kids to run around outside. Also being that it's a national monument/park, entry is free if you have the Golden Pass or other that qualifies.

If you love history, Fort Frderica is a wonderful place to visit. The visitor center has a good video and fun hands on activities for kids. There is not a lot to see but a lot to imagine. The trees and field are beautiful and with the many informational stations, I could imagine what life was like at the fort almost 300 years ago.

If you are a history buff, then this a place you must visit. The staff was very friendly. The information they give about the Fort is pretty well detailed. They have blacksmiths who use the old methods and explain everything to you. The land is well maintained and the view from beyond the fort is amazing.
