Florida Georgia Line River Camp

25 sites · RVs, Tents10 acres · GA
Welcome, y'all, to Blackwater Ranch, where the sun shines bright and the river flows steadily. We're nestled right on the most southern part of Georgia, on the Florida-Georgia line, where the pristine Blackwaters of the Saint Mary’s River meander through the countryside. Conveniently located only 45 minutes from the Southside of Jacksonville and St. Augustine, it's only an hour's drive. Blackwater Ranch spans 10 acres and boasts 1300 feet of scenic riverfront, complemented by 2 acres of open field. The rest of the property is lush woods where the pines sway in the wind and wild huckleberries grow everywhere! We cater exclusively to private venue events, tent campers, and small camping trailers, ensuring a peaceful retreat. The property is surrounded by over 150 acres of protected Florida Sanctuary woods, providing a quiet and private stay. Most guests during their stay see very few people, if any at all, on the grounds and river, so if you're into privacy, you must check us out. Also, no one lives on the property, so you don't have to worry about us bothering you or dogs greeting you when you arrive. Our facilities include an outhouse with lighting and a handwash sink. Additionally, we offer a spacious 70' covered pavilion, ideal for gatherings and events, available for reservation upon request. For recreational activities, guests can enjoy our trails around the property, 8' picnic tables perfect for outdoor dining, as well as fishing, kayaking, and swimming in the river with white beach sand under your feet (please be mindful of seasonal and local weather depth changes 2'-13') and some of the best nighttime stargazing around. We provide rental services for kayaks, canoes, and Jon boats, allowing guests to explore the Saint Mary’s River at their leisure. In the evening, gather around our firepit or have your own. Looking ahead, we are committed to enhancing our property with amenities such as hot showers, designated tent sites, and glamping options complete with fire pits and grills. Cabins are also in development. Join us at Blackwater Ranch for a unique outdoor experience. We are dedicated to creating memories for your exploration in a peaceful and relaxing outdoor environment. COMMON QUESTIONS: One question we receive all the time is... why is the river black? Great question! Well, the water is black because it is rich with tannins from the headwaters of the Okefenokee Wildlife Refuge, the largest blackwater swamp in North America, with its peat-filled freshwater. The water is tea-colored but appears black in water over 1' deep. Another question we get often is whether the river is safe to swim in. Of course, it is! In fact, the water might be one of the best types of water to swim/bathe in, due to the rich tannic acid in the water that kills odor-causing bacteria and mosquito larvae. So go ahead and take a dip and let the river wash away your troubles and worries. Is the river beach shelly/rocky/rough on the feet? It's honestly the opposite. Our property sits on an ancient oceanfront dune formed over 6,000 thousand years ago called "Trail Ridge". The property has soft white beach sand with very few sticks or branches in the water of the swimming areas. No need for swimming shoes, but feel free to bring them if you wish. Does the river stink or have a sulfur smell? NOPE! The river has no smell if any at all. How are the bugs? As for any wooded forested area, we highly recommend bug/tick spray. The property, in general, is not overrun by mosquitoes or bugs, but please plan accordingly. Are there wild animals on the property? YES, they can make an appearance at any time. Is hunting or firearms allowed? NOT AT ALL. This is a private retreat, not a hunting ground. BB guns are ok with adult supervision. Family Friendly? Yes, it is. We want the whole family to enjoy the great outdoors. PLEASE NOTE! No lifeguard is on duty so please keep a careful eye on your kids as the river current can be strong at times. SWIM AT YOUR OWN RISK! Are there any grocery or restaurants nearby? YES. There is a small county store with gas only a 2-minute drive with the cheapest ICE around, also a Dollar General (5 min drive), a Walmart is only about a 10-minute drive away, and many other options for groceries and local restaurants. IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY: DIAL 911 or go to the Florida Line Police AG Inspection Station (1-minute drive) Hospital at Ed Fraser Memorial "159 N 3rd St, Macclenny, FL 32063" (10 minute drive) Urgent Care at Family Care "9545 FL-228, Macclenny, FL 32063" (10 Minutes)

The best camping near Crooked River State Park guide

Overview

About

Crooked River State Park is a 500-acre preserve located just north of the Florida border on the Atlantic Coast. It’s an angler’s paradise—bring your boat to put in at the ramp or grab a rental onsite. A full-service bait shop makes it easy to pick up supplies, and a dockside cleaning station means you can cook what you catch. Aside from the water, Crooked River is known for its abundant wildlife, birding, and hiking trails through piney maritime forest. Learn all about the park’s diverse ecosystem at the nature center, and visit a nearby tabby mill for a taste of local history. The park is also just down the road from the ferry to popular Cumberland Island, making it a good stop on your way to exploring the Golden Isles. 

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Reservations for all campsites are open year-round and can be made over a year in advance. 
  2. Dogs are allowed in cottages 1, 4, 10, and 11 for an additional fee, so be sure to book one of those if you plan to bring your pet.
  3. If you need an ADA accessible campsite, book sites 22, 23, or 46.

When to go

Thanks to its mild weather, Crooked River State Park is pleasant to visit year-round. If you’re going fishing, time your visit for spring or fall for the most bites. Summer visitors should expect heat, bugs, and breezes, while winter campers will experience the fewest crowds.  

Know before you go

  • Cottages are equipped with a screened porch, grill, picnic table, and cable TV.
  • Campsites are mostly shaded and have a table, fire ring, and grill, plus access to shared comfort stations with hot showers.
  • All persons over age 16 who plan to fish must have a valid fishing license.
