- JamiApr. 3, 2022What a great outing with the Pups
Super fun place to go with your dogs.
What a great amount of history and my girls LOVED exploring in all the rooms.
Definitely a must do
- EmilySep. 5, 2021Perfect Spot to bring your pup!
Fort Gaines is very dog friendly! The staff is very nice! They only ask for you to keep your pup on a leash and to pick up after them. The pups can go into any building, and the museum is air conditioned (great place to cool off in!). There are a lot of sand spurs, so I suggest shoes for your pup if you have them. we had a great time and will definitely be bringing our pup back!
- AnneAug. 14, 2021Great Historic Fort
This is a well preserved fort at the entrance to Mobile Bay. It played a key Civil War role in the defense of Alabama. The wall is mostly intact and various rooms used by its residents are on display in the courtyard. Take a leisurely self guided tour and enjoy the views of the Gulf. It's dog friendly, too.

My dog loved exploring the rooms. This is a neat place to visit.
- JesJul. 20, 2019Excellent Experience!
It’s not everyday that you get to explore a historic fort with your pooch. Fort Gaines is it! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The fort is beautiful and of significance to the Civil War. There are artifacts and the tour is self-paced (air-conditioned museum) but mostly reliant on sea breezes. Bring your camera and your leash. Lots of fun-don’t miss it! ( ps-next to dog-friendly beach).
