We enjoyed our visit here. We parked at the next lot over from the visitor entrance. The trees are so unique and facing in the direction of the wind. We saw the monument and walked over to where hills are located. There are plaques explaining the importance of the fort. There are cannons and bunker. We walked all around the site. Its a self guided tour. It was a very educational visit. We wore our masks the entire time as lot of people were walking around.

We always like to take in a bit of history when we vacation. We just returned from Carolina Beach and visited Fort Fisher at Kure Beach. It's an interesting lesson from the Civil War denoting young Confederate reserves and how they met unfortunate circumstances on a Christmas Eve. Nice beach area. Historical museum...closed due to Covid but placards tell the story. We even saw a wedding shoot and alpacas at that beach!

We had a really good time here. We signed up for the historian tour – well worth the money we spent. Ray did a great job and clearly knew his material. Not just about Ft. Fisher, but about the civil war in general and really put the site in perspective. The tour alone made the visit to Ft. Fisher worthwhile. The area itself has a nice walking trail. The folks who work at the sight were very helpful.

This is a very nice, very informative facility that exhibits many items from the battlefield. There is a short animated map of the battlefield and surrounding area that helps explain the battle. The exhibits are informative. The number of Medal of Honor awardees was staggering, 54! The staff is very friendly. A young volunteer approached me and said she was sorry she couldn't shake my hand but wanted to thank me for my service! There are guided tours ($) and self guided tours available around the grounds.
