We were on a drive on our visit to the Golden Isles. It was raining and not conducive to outside activities so we decided to explore. We spotted a sign for Sapelo Island and followed the arrows. What a great find. We were not able to ride the ferry over to the island but would definitely do so on another... More

Took the tour of Sapelo Island. Very interesting. The Reynolds Mansion was beautiful but the scenery surrounding the grounds was spectacular.

March is my father's birthday and we were out riding after Ft. King George in Darien sight seeing and stopped in here. It has a nice LONG ramp for wheelchair access and the AC inside feels good. Bathrooms are clean and well stocked. There is ample parking and pic nic tables to have your lunch on if you packed one.... More

The wheelchair lift does not work properly - the driver had a length of pipe she stuck in a hole to get it to operate but when that didn't work she had to hand pump the lift. Her comment: "they need to get this fixed". There are no tie... More

we visited here to get an overview of Sapelo Island. I tried to do it on the internet, but we found the best way was to go to the visitor's center and he was so informative about the island, the things to see, the amount of walking (important since one of our party has problems walking), times of the ferry...
