Crooked River State Park is a 500-acre (2.0 km2) Georgia state park located near St. Mary's on the south bank of the Crooked River, providing an excellent coastal setting. The park is dedicated to the preservation of its natural resources and public education. The park is near the ruins of the McIntosh Sugarworks, built around 1825 and used as a starch factory during the American Civil War. It is the closest state park to Cumberland Island National Seashore and it is adjacent to the Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay.

Quiet & Spacious + Close to Other Places to Visit for Day Trips
We stayed here end May / early June. Great campground with spacious sites and very quiet. Some of the sites have more privacy with the palmettos in between, but the site we were at did not. Sites are level, park is clean, bathhouses are clean. Three bars of cell service at the campground. The park has some trails for hiking, a nature center, picnic areas, and of course access to the water for fishing and kayaking. We rode our bikes around the park every day. We especially liked the short river trail in the mornings and evenings - great views. This campground is within an hour's drive of Jekyll Island and St. Simon's Island, as well as Florida beaches, which we visited. We also took the ferry to Cumberland Island National Seashore and spent a day hiking around the island - it was amazing.
