"To Protect, Preserve and Interpret Alabama's Historic Places."

Visitors, starting Monday, August 3, we will begin construction on a new pier. While we are excited about these improvements, please note that access to  Fort Morgan beach will only be available via Burgoyne Road. Construction is expected to be completed next spring.  We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to experiencing the new pier with you in 2021.


FORT MORGAN PROPERTY AND GATES CLOSE AT 5:00pm

Fort Morgan offers a never ending variety of possibilities for outdoor activities. Beaches, nature trails, and a boat and kayak launching. 

Caution should be used in using the beaches as no lifeguards are present. Please be aware that all beaches close at sundown.  

Fort Morgan is a Dog Friendly Site.  Keep dogs on a leash at all times and pick up after them. Beyond the Old Fisherman's Wharf is a Federal Wildlife area so dogs are not permitted beyond that point.


Fishing

Fort Morgan provides the opportunity for every angler to land that "big one" from its shoreline.  Come where the locals have been shore fishing for years, come to Fort Morgan!

 During the fall migration period, birds use the site as a "fuel" replenishment spot before starting their long trip over the Gulf of Mexico. During the Spring, they repeat the journey in reverse. Because of its location and the importance it plays in these annual events, Fort Morgan was designated one of "One Hundred Globally Important Bird Areas" by the American Bird Conservancy. A part of the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail,  signs are located throughout the site to aid you.

The dune complexes and marshes are protected endangered species habitat. While you may walk along the beach near the dunes, please do not enter the complexes or marshes.

DO NOT DISTURB NESTING TURTLES!

Signs are posted where areas are closed for visitation.

Caution: Uneven Surfaces, Steep Stairs, Dangerous Wildlife Area.
