Fort George Island Cultural State Park
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 Ribault Clubsouthern 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. Once an exclusive resort, it is now a visitor center with a meeting space available for special functions. Behind the club, small boats, canoes and kayaks can be launched on the tidal waters. To reserve the Club for a special event, contact The Ribault Club at 904-251-1050.
For an eco-friendly experience you won't soon forget, sign up for a guided tour of Fort George Island Cultural State Park on a cross terrain Segway with Kayak Amelia. These 1.25 to 2 hour tours depart from the historic Ribault Club and visit the Kingsley Plantation while traveling along more than 2 - 4 miles of maritime forest, abundant with plant and animal life. No experience necessary, but advance reservations are required so please call 904-251-0016 for more information.
