3358447898_5f83e83911_m1A small civil war museum, the best preserved earthwork fortifications of the Civil War, great birding and nature hikes – and a campsite that was so quiet (even when the park was full on the weekend) that we slept until past 9:00. Our campsite bordered the salt marshes (#8) and it lulled us into a four-night stay. We did the Magnolia Trail (little more than a mile around the island – where the campground is) both morning and evening and the much longer, but beautiful and amazing Redbird Creek Nature Trail.

We ate at Loves’ Seafood restaurant two of our four nights in camp. It’s not far, rangers will give directions. The first night we each had the scored flounder which was delicious (and gigantic -I never turned mine over). Our second time, we both had the fried shrimp, which we agreed were the best we’ve ever had. And we’ve had a lot of great fried shrimp! They don’t take reservations, ask for a riverside table.
