Fort Stewart Community


Whether driving, flying or coming by bus or rail, Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield are easily accessible. Hunter Army Airfield is adjacent to southern Savannah, Georgia, while Fort Stewart is 42 miles southwest of Savannah. The two installations, located approximately 37 miles apart, are served by the same garrison, and Soldiers and their families are authorized to use the support agencies at both locations.

Regardless of where you are being assigned, all Soldiers must first report in at the Marne Reception Center at Fort Stewart for approximately eight days of in-processing.

If Coming by Car

Fort Stewart is readily accessible by way of the major East Coast thoroughfares: U.S. 17, U.S. 84, Interstate 16 and Interstate 95. The Stewart garrison area is in the middle southern portion of the reservation, adjacent to Hinesville.

The heavily wooded reservation is bisected in several places by paved roads, including GA-119, running north to south from Pembroke to Hinesville. To reach the garrison area from Savannah, drive west on I-16 or drive south on Abercorn Street extension GA-144 to I-95 south, then exit toward Jacksonville, Florida. Continue south on I-95 to Exit 90 to Fort Stewart. Travel Highway 144 through the reservation for about 22 miles to signs indicating a left turn to the cantonment area. If you are traveling from Atlanta, drive south on I-75 to Macon, then take I-16 to Pembroke. From Pembroke, follow GA-119 to the cantonment area. If northbound on I-95, follow Exit 76, which is the Midway/Hinesville exit. The major highway passing through Hinesville is U.S. 84, and the two main routes to Stewart on the east and west edges of town are clearly marked on this road.

If Arriving by Air, Bus or Rail


The nearest commercial airport is located in Savannah. The Amtrak Rail System also serves Savannah and Jesup. Soldiers should contact the Marne Reception Center at 912-767-0115 to arrange transportation to Fort Stewart where Soldiers will report in and in-process.
