About Fort Mott
Located in Pennsville, New Jersey, Fort Mott State Park is the site of a former U.S. Army coastal defense fort. Established in 1896, Fort Mott was built to strengthen the defenses of the Delaware River. Fort Mott consisted of five gun batteries ranging in size from 3-inch rapid fire guns to the massive 12-inch rifles on disappearing carriages which could fire a thousand pound projectile 9 miles down river. An army base until 1944, Fort Mott now provides recreational activities as well as historic structures and fortifications. The shoreline offers good spots for walking and picnicking. The park’s museum and welcome center is located in the former Ordnance Building which provides local and site specific displays. A seasonal passenger ferry provides service to Fort Delaware on Pea Patch Island.

Event Visitors
Fort Mott is open to the public year round. They welcome visitors and families to attend Historic Soldiers Weekend free of charge.
