The Best Spots to Launch a Kayak in Liberty County
The official start of summer is a month away and it’s so close that we can almost taste it! Hot days, lots of sunshine & getting to do some of our favorite outdoor activities! If you didn’t know, Liberty County is located on the intracoastal waterway so kayaking is one of our favorite things to do! Here are the best spots in Liberty County to launch your kayak, so that you can sit back and let the creeks and rivers guide you along. Check them out below!
Interstate Paper Road, Riceboro GA
If you turn off of Highway 17 in Riceboro onto Interstate Paper Road, you’ll go down a bit and find a quaint little public dock and pier. We like to think that the Riceboro dock is one of their many hidden gems because it’s a great fishing spot. Don’t forget your rod and reel when you make your way out there! If you launch your kayak here, you’ll be able to enjoy the day paddling on the water and catch some delicious fish for dinner too. Pro Tip: If you plan to launch here don’t forget to pack your sunscreen!
Sunbury Boat Ramp
3295 Ft. Morris Road, Midway GA
The public dock in Sunbury is another favorite spot to enjoy the coastal views and go fishing. It has direct access to the intracoastal waterway, so you’ll want to have the Tides Near Me app handy when you visit here. This will help you know what the tides are doing so that you can choose the best possible time for your excursion. This is one of the most serene spots in all of Liberty County.
Kayaking at this spot allows you to venture through the marsh, relax in the sun and maybe even see a school of dolphins. Once you’ve finished your coastal adventure, make your way back up to the Sunbury Crab Company and enjoy fresh seafood, a cold beverage and maybe even some live music. Call ahead and make a reservation though, because they fill up fast! Pro Tip: You can book your reservation online by clicking here.
Jones Creek Park
2059 Isle of Wight Road, Midway GA
Before you cross the causeway onto Isle of Wight in Midway, you’ll find a park that has a small landing with access to water. We’re a little biased, because Jones Creek Park is one of our personal favorite spots! Whether you have very little kayaking experience or if you’re a seasoned pro, you’ll enjoy putting in here and paddling around.
The best way to enjoy kayaking here is to pack a cooler and venture out to a sandbar. This is a tidal creek, so you’ll want to download the Tides Near Me app and set your location as St. Catherines Island to make sure that you don’t get stuck dragging your kayak through the mud! We suggest that you stay out until sunset, because they’re remarkable at this spot! Pro Tip: There is also a playground at this park, so if your littles like to swing this is the place for you!
