Welcome to Fort George Island Cultural State Park
Native Americans feasted here, colonists built a fort, and the Smart Set of the 1920s came for vacations. A site of human occupation for over 5,000 years, Fort George Island was named for a 1736 fort built to defend the southern flank of Georgia when it was a colony. Today´s visitors come for boating, fishing, off-road bicycling, and hiking. A key attraction is the restored Ribault Club. Once an exclusive resort, it is now a visitor center with meeting space available for special functions. Behind the club, small boats, canoes, and kayaks can be launched on the tidal waters.
The Ribault Club is located next to Kingsley Plantation and offers a 3-mile long nature trail. If you have never been to Fort George Island now is your opportunity to see one of the most beautiful places on the First Coast. As always, I recommend bringing bug spray and water for the event. The Sand Dollar restaurant is located nearby if anyone would like to have lunch afterwards.
I will be driving from my home directly to the event. Please use comments sections to set up any car-pooling needs.
