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

Please be aware that all beaches close at 5:00 pm when the site's gate closes.

Bird and Wildlife Watching

 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. Please do not disturb nesting Turtles.  While you may walk along the beach near the dunes, please do not enter the complexes or marshes. Please do not disturb nesting Turtles. Signs are posted where areas are closed for visitation.

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

Fort Morgan is a Dog Friendly Site.  Please keep them on a leash at all times and pick up after them.  The Mobile bay side beach from the old Fort Morgan Pier all the way to the Old Fisherman's Wharf is the only beach that allows dogs.   Beyond the Old Fisherman's Wharf is a Federal Wildlife area so dogs are not permitted beyond that point.
