Fort Pulaski National Monument is located in Chatham County, Georgia along the Savannah River only a few miles from its junction with the Atlantic Ocean. With the exception of approximately 250 acres on Cockspur Island and 200 acres on McQueens Island, the 5400 acre park consists of tidal marshes and mud flats that are subject to daily inundation of a six to ten foot tide. These two islands that make up the site were, before human intervention, primarily salt marsh.
