Crooked River State Park, St. Mary’s, GA

Date of Stay:  Tuesday February 14 - Saturday February 18, 2012 (4 nights)

Rate:  $28/night

Website:  Crooked River State Park (GA)
     6222 Charlie Smith Sr. Highway
     St. Mary’s, GA   31558

Description:  Paved roads.  Two loops with the older one having 30A and water, newer having 50A and water.  Older loop has some sites that look out over the water with packed sand and grass sites but lacked privacy.  Newer loop has privacy plantings between sites which were packed crush and run gravel bordered by timbers.  We were on site 54 which was a large pull thru.  Reservations are not site specific so you get a better site if you get there by Wednesday.  Dump station is separate from the campground on your way out.

Activities:  Rainy while we were there but good place to ride bikes on the paved roads.  Paddle trails in the estuaries but can have tidal influence.  Nice boat launch.  Nice nature center.  Black flies/gnats were active.

Trash and Recycle:  Recycle bins beside the dumpsters as you enter the campground.  Aluminum cans, plastic bottles, and glass.
