Fort Pulaski National Monument will soon modify its seven-day entrance fee from $7 per person to $10 per person on January 1, 2019. The Fort Pulaski annual pass will increase from $30 to $35 In April 2019. The National Park Service (NPS) recently announced changes to entrance fees charged at national parks. The changes, which came in response to public comments on a fee proposal released in October 2017, have modestly increased entrance fees to raise additional revenue to address the $11.6 billion in deferred maintenance across the system of 418 parks, historic and cultural sites, and monuments.

The price of the annual America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Annual Pass and Lifetime Senior Pass will remain $80. The Access Pass, Free Annual Pass for active U.S. Military, and Annual 4th Grade Pass are free for qualified U.S. citizens.

All of the revenue from the fee increase will remain at Fort Pulaski National Monument. The funds will be used for deferred maintenance projects and activities to improve the experience for visitors who visit the park.

Fort Pulaski National Monument is located on U.S. Highway 80, 15 miles east of Savannah. For more information, visit or call 912-786-5787. You can also follow the park on Instagram at, on Twitter at, or like the official Fort Pulaski National Monument Facebook page at
