Point of Information
Point of Information
Crossing the St. Mary's River. The St. Marys River forms part of the border between Florida and Georgia. It originates at the Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia and flows east into the Atlantic Ocean near Fort Clinch State Park. The tea-colored river features white sandbars and makes for easy paddling. Low water increases trip time considerably. This 125-mile river starts in the acid swamps of Okeefenokee and becomes a tidal river below Rt. 17 north of Jacksonville. Upstream is redbreast sunfish and small largemouth bass territory. The salt marsh zone is famous for striped bass (the same is true for nearby Nassau River).

Fort King was built prior to the Second Seminole War of Florida (1835-1842) according to archaeologist Gary Ellis. Three substantive archaeological surveys have been conducted in the vicinity and the findings of these earlier studies led to a new study in 1993-94 identifying two distinct prehistoric components. The investigation of the history of Fort King is still ongoing with plans to offer the public a chance to learn more about life in those times.
