Site of Civil War's largest amphibious (land and water) battle, the remaining portion of the gigantic Fort Fisher earthworks, along with a restored palisade fence and impressive seacoast gun, sits near the Visitors Center. The fully accessible Visitors Center & Gift Shop includes a video, exhibits, and artifacts recovered from sunken ships. A scenic trail, shaded by gnarled live oaks, leads past the earthworks, around to the rear of the fort remains. Visitor Center expansion project underway parking redirected
