Fort Morgan peninsula stretches 22 miles west of the City of Gulf Shores in unincorporated Baldwin County. The peninsula is surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico to the south, Mobile Bay to the north and part of Little Lagoon. It is suitable for many outdoor activities with miles of beach, boat launches, and nature trails. This Alabama town was named after the historical fort by the same name. Fort Morgan Historical Park was established around Mobile Point to commemorate important points in history. Modernized continuously after the Civil War, this significant place exhibits war remnants from different eras pertinent to American History.
Fort Morgan also offers the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge which is a stopover for migratory birds. It is part of the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail. The marshes and dune complexes make refuge for many other wildlife such as Monarch butterflies, so you can enjoy plenty of nature-watching.
Fort Morgan is also home to Kiva Dunes Golf Course. The layout was created by Jim Edgemon, the property’s developer, and longtime friend and former U.S. Open Champion Jerry Pate. Kiva Dunes Golf Course consistently ranks as one of the top courses in the country and the top course in Alabama.
With an abundance of sandy white beaches located at the mouth of Mobile Bay, anglers have plenty of opportunity to land a big catch. Fort Morgan is famous for its red fish. Publilc beach access is available in two locations. Both of these access points are inside separate units of the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. At the Perdue Unit, take a left on Mobile Street a mile and a half past the visitor center and follow the road till it reaches the beach. The Fort Morgan Unit at the end of the peninsula has an unnamed beach access road just outside the grounds of the Fort Morgan State Historic Site.
Single-family homes in different styles and price ranges make up the majority of available residences, many of which are built on stilts. If you prefer a low-maintenance residence, you can also find condo units. The further west you go on the peninsula, the narrower the land gets. This means that numerous houses on the western side of Fort Morgan have dual water views of the Gulf to the south and the bay to the north. Homes for sale range from small cottages to 10-bedroom estates. Prices range from $300,000 to over 1 million.
Regardless of housing choice, you'll enjoy a quiet, laid-back lifestyle in a slow-paced environment.
