Whether you pack a picnic basket or carry out an order from a local takeout restaurant, the best way to enjoy your fare is in the gorgeous outdoor setting of the Golden Isles. With picnic areas offering jaw-dropping views of the ocean, river and marsh, as well as areas shaded by century-old live oaks, Georgia's Golden Isles are the perfect place to have a picnic.

Our picnic areas can accommodate any size group with small rental pavilions, barbeque grills, and running water. Some larger groups choose to sit back, relax and enjoy their company while one of our local caterers fixes up a southern barbeque or seafood boil. There are no charges for the use of the facilities unless you make reservations. (Reservations are optional but recommended for larger groups)

You can review the list of picnic areas below to help you find a picnic area that fits your needs. Please respect the environment by leaving each area you visit as you found it and pack out what you packed in. Thank you for helping us to keep the Golden Isles beautiful!
