Nice out of the way campground, large sites near the picturesque town of St Mary's. Beware of the no-see-ums (gnats) which can be ferocious above 65 degrees

This is a typical Georgia State Park. Sites are spread out enough to give you some cushion bewteen sites. Some sites are larger than others, and there are some really great sites here and there. About 5 sites are near the rivers edge with a nice breeze coming in from the river. The CG is covered by a pine forest and a good layer of grass. Some direct sun here and there but enough shade throughout. Some pull through sites, but most others are easy enough to get into. Armadillos sneak around at night on the outer edge of the campground. Bathrooms were cleaned daily and are fairly new. A small playground in the main loop and a large elevated feild suitable for a volleyball net or tossing a football or frisbee. A boat ramp beside the park at the Crooked River. Miniture golf and day use areas of the park are a good distance from the campground. About a 20 minute drive to Downtown St. Marys and the ferry to Cumberland Island. Make sure you reserve seats on the ferry when you book your campsite. You do not pay for the ferry untill you depart, so just call and give them your name and info, otherwise you may not get a spot on the ferry. I saw many people very disappointed. 2 areas of concern: more underbrush needed inside campground and hot weather days will conjure up more of the dreaded sand gnat.

Crooked River State Park is located in a forested area on a flat coastal area adjacent to the Crooked River. The 60 unit campground is situated in a stand of coastal hardwoods and mixed pine woods, and the remnants of the climax maritime forest.. The park is bordered by a huge salt marsh and has some very good salt water fishing. The Crooked River flows into Cumberland Sound about 8 miles to the east of the park. We were in site 21 which is a huge pull-through site nestled in a stand of longleaf pines. Each night the campground host had a campfire which provided an opportunity to meet fellow campers. The shower building was very well maintained and convenient to our campsite. Our cost was $16.00 per night. The location of the park is ideal for sightseeing in the Jacksonville, Florida and Brunswick, Georgia areas. Sites of interest include Fort Caroline in Jacksonville and Fort Frederica on St. Simons Island, Georgia.
