  • This is the nicest state park I have ever visited. Campsites are clean and very well maintained. Full hookups at premium sites, all others have electric (30 amp and 50 amp) and water. Shower facilities are very clean and we'll maintained.
  • We took our son to an Advanced training for the Naval Sea Cadets. The Group Shelter we met at was spotless, it seemed new. The entire park was very clean. They had a nice boat ramp with ample parking for vehicle and trailer. Although we didn't look at the cabins they to seemed very nice and clean from the outside. The park is very close to the Naval Base and to beautiful, historic downtown St. Marys Ga. It was very easy to get to from I-95.
