Nickerson State Park

Parking availability is determined by park staff and space reservations are not allowed. Camp and day use are on a first-come, first-served basis. We appreciate your patience during this hectic time of year. You must provide your own ring of fire if you camp on Radio Ridge at the Lower Ranch, or at the Obstacle Course Camp at the Upper Ranch. Portable stoves can be used in designated areas. It is the responsibility of each visitor to be extremely careful with any burning material, including tobacco.

Smoking is not allowed in any park building, including yurts and cabins. Please note that this policy will be strictly applied. The 400 miles of coastline in our state, serene forests, and spectacular ocean views attract visitors both in the state and non-residents. Fun and affordable, you can choose between campsites hidden in the forest or just a stone’s throw from the shore. Reservations can be changed once without penalty. Any additional changes will incur a transfer fee of $ 10.

To purchase an annual ParkPass, visit any Georgia State Park office or purchase a ParkPass online (allow 7-10 business days for shipping). During the night, guests pay only a fee for the duration of their stay. Guests must pay the full balance of their reservation at check-in.

With two main boat ramps in the park, located on Collier Cove on the west side and Tatum Cove on the east side, boaters rarely have to wait long to launch. Smaller boats and canoes can be launched cigar humidor directly from the beach in certain areas; however, the launch of any motorized boat from a beach area is prohibited. Motorized vessels must be launched and recovered from the two improved ramps.

This includes, but is not limited to, indecent acts, intoxication, or rude language. Campers cannot extend the date of departure of a reservation until they register at the property. Extensions can be made through the property office if the site is available and must be made no later than the day prior to its scheduled departure.

Reservations without an appointment are welcome, but are not allowed after business hours. Installation is NOT allowed in a camp without payment and proof of permission. All vehicles MUST remain at their designated entrances. Additional vehicles must be parked in the overflowing parking lot located in the Office Building or in the Primitive Parks.

Usually we are quite efficient and light campers. However, 2 adults carried enough for 5 people to eat for 3 days, 4 sleeping bags and a TWO MEN store (there are photos to show that we all fit in)! With each pack of over 60 pounds, we head down the trail, crossing streams and making our way through the woods. We needed to stray from the trail because it was covered in snow. This trail is mainly setbacks on the side of a mountain on steep terrain, so there were no opportunities to set up camp.

The twins ran headlong and each corner was excited, but the path would continue. One of the streams that flows into Trap Pond has been marked as a trail of wild canoes. A boat launch ramp accommodates small motorized boats to fish or explore the pond. Fishermen can land a variety of fish, from pickerel, crappie, and bluegills to catfish, American eel, and sea bass. More than two pets are not allowed to remain in a designated camp or cabin / cabin, regardless of size.

For the health and safety of the park staff mascot, pets cannot be neglected in their cabin, cabin, caravan or vehicle. When you visit these parks, you will probably enter both national parks and national forest lands. Some rules vary between National Parks and National Forests.
