From the dock at Hampton Point River Marina in southern Georgia, the boat ride to the island takes 15 minutes. A cluster of small buildings accommodates up to 32 visitors. Spacious for families, the River Lodge and Cedar House have four bedrooms, private baths, wet bar, and wraparound deck.

Play all day: Nature lovers can bike, boat, fish, canoe, and hike.

Explore: The private barrier island is home to moss-laden maritime forests, marshlands, and seven miles of beach.
