Satilla River Water Trail
Water Trail Information
The Satilla River Water Trail is located in southeast Georgia. The trail is approximately 140 miles long, beginning in Jamestown, and continuing downstream to the city of Woodbine. We invite you to experience the wild beauty of the Satilla River, and the plants and animals it supports.
The mission of the Satilla River Water Trail partnership is to encourage residents and visitors to celebrate the historic, scenic and environmental richness of the beautiful and unique Satilla River. Through designation of our water trail we hope to promote eco-tourism through outdoor recreation, events for paddlers and river enthusiasts, and maintaining a family friendly environment on our river.
