This park provides good fishing, a Native American festival in August and a pleasant setting for hikers and campers.
Truly a quaint park with nice facilities for picnicking, hiking and learning about nature.
Staff is super friendly. And the feature my wife and I enjoyed most was the cute 18 hole miniature golf course.
A turtle family was living under the 2nd hole and came out to forage while we were there on several occasions.

A compact musem featuring memorabila from submarines of the past. Well worth the entrance price and an hour's time.

Life is so much fun enjoying a windy bluebird spring day on the waterfront of St. Mary's in a bench swing. Thank you, Mr. Howard Gilman. Your legacy continues.

Official source for information on everything there is to do and see around Georgia. Open 7 days a week.
We received a paper local map of just the downtown area. We are not familiar with the area so I asked for a map of the area beyond downtown. I had to pay over $3.00
for that map which is what the Chamber of Commerce charges for it! This was a first!
Wow! Welcome to St. Mary's! Our hometown in Rhode Island is a tourist destination. And the Chamber of Commerce supplies all sorts of maps of the town, the area and the state with no charge. I am sure visitors must appreciate the absence of a fee for a map. I have been to many places and have never been charged for a local map! After all, the Chamber more than likely usually wants visitors to find their way to as many businesses as possible!

Very beautiful spot. Great if you love history or architecture. It'd be nice if they put up an engraving or something to show what it looked like originally. The historical marker I'm sure is accurate... but what is cattle horizontal whatever it was?? LOL

This water park is extremely affordable, and ideal for those with babies and young children. There are plenty of shallow areas where kids can play but adults can still keep cool, concessions were not expensive at all compared to other places. (Example: paid $7 for a hot dog, soft pretzel and 2 bottled drinks)
Parking was easy, staff was courteous and though it could use more shaded areas, it's a nice little place to spend an afternoon.

We forget how absolutely revered George Washington was to the point that at his death ceremonial "burials" were held in many towns across the country. The fact that oak trees were planted (unfortunately none remain--except for one stump) in his memory highlight the love of his countrymen for their "father".
It is also interesting history in this day & age of turning on a tap and expecting water to flow you realize that in a town such as St Marys you had to go to one of the public wells & pump water for your household use.
An enjoyable little history lesson while wandering through St. M.

Scenic island off the coast of Georgia noted for excellent kayaking and other outdoor activities.
Grover Island is really a marshland (not an island) in the mouth of the Crooked River near the Crooked River State Park boat ramp. It is extremely popular for fishing. Fishermen regularly gig for flounder on the edges on spring and summer evenings. The sea grasses change colors with the seasons and it's a beautiful marsh view.
