Ranger-guided tour of Fort Frederica National Monument

Park Rangers conduct 45-minute guided tours of Fort Frederica National Monument two times a day, typically at 11:15 AM and 2:15 PM. There is no need to register; just meet at the Visitor Center at the appropriate time if interested. Ranger-guided tours are always the best way to learn about a park, so try to fit one into your schedule if possible. However, if you can’t catch one, or arrive on a day when none are being held, you can always explore Fort Frederica on your own. In fact, there is more to the park than covered on the tour, so you’ll have to do some self-exploration as well.

In addition to imparting knowledge about the history of Fort Frederica, Rangers utilize virtual reality technology on the tour at certain stops along the way. Using a tablet computer, Rangers can show visitors what the old houses at Frederica and sections of the actual fort may have looked like. You’ll only see the building foundations on your own. Point the tablet in the direction of the foundation and you’ll see a 3-D view of the building. This is a new technology for the National Park Service, and the goal is to one day make it possible for visitors to view the 3-D renderings on their own phones and tablets, but as of early 2022, only the Rangers have the software.
