“Just next to Cumberland Island National Seashore”
Located on southern tip of Georgia’s Colonial Coast, this park is the perfect spot for enjoying the intracoastal waterway and maritime forest. Campsites are surrounded by palmettos and Spanish moss-draped oaks, while cottages are set near the tidal river. A boat ramp is popular with anglers who often take to the water before sunrise. Just down the road is the ferry to famous Cumberland Island National Seashore known for secluded beaches and wild horses. The park’s nature trail winds through forest and salt marsh, and hikers may see gopher tortoises, fiddler crabs, herons and other birds. A nature center features fish, snakes, turtles and other animals native to coastal Georgia. Visitors may venture to the nearby ruins of a tabby mill, built around 1825 and later used as a starch factory during the Civil War.
My wife and I stayed here last spring and it was wonderful. There are two distinct sections. One is the traditional sites that are wide and not too close together. The other section is much more open covered by tall pines. There is a paved road throughout the park that is great for bike riding. It is nice and quiet and the staff is super friendly. We will definitely return.
