To Protect and Preserve

Here's a chance to see some guided reenactments of the Civil War period of the fort's occupation. Demonstration of small arms, storytelling and some actual artillery firing. It starts in the evening and is, of course, done by candlelight. You can visit the Historic Southern Grill and select a boxed lunch to enjoy in one of two shoreline picnic areas. In addition to learning some history, guests may also enjoy fishing, birding, swimming, nature trails and a boat launch. No lifeguards. Dog are welcome--on leash only--except in certain posted areas. No drones, no metal detectors, please.
