This is Crooked River State Park – a natural wonderland that is so rare and precious that, in 1985, it was added to The National Register of Historic Places. A true treasure of Georgia’s Colonial Coast, the park perches upon Elliot's Bluff, which overlooks the Crooked River—a salt-water river that empties into Cumberland Sound approximately eight miles east.

This extraordinary, 500-acre, family-friendly park is just minutes from downtown St. Marys, and offers something for everyone. Camping facilities are available as are 11 charming cabins—complete with bathroom, kitchen, living room, two or three bedrooms and screened porches that overlook the river and the splendor of the salt marsh.

Adults and children alike will enjoy a visit to the park's nature center to experience an “up close and personal” encounter with the fish, snakes, turtles and other animals native to this part of Georgia. The staff is welcoming, knowledgeable, and clearly delights in sharing the park’s mysteries and magic.
