"Due to the lapse of appropriations and the subsequent shutdown of the federal government," a spokesperson says, Fort Pulaski National monument is closed for the safety of visitors and park resources.
The only area accessible to the public will be the Lazaretto Creek Boat Ramp.
"Many other national park sites across the country will remain as accessible as possible while still following all applicable laws and procedures," the Fort says.
Visit www.nps.gov and select “Find a Park” for additional information about access to other parks and sites in this area.
However, note that because of the federal government shutdown, NPS social media and websites are not being monitored or updated and may not reflect current conditions.
