Native Americans feasted here, colonists built a fort and the Smart Set of the 1920s came for vacations.

A site of human occupation for over 5,000 years, Fort George Island was named for a 1736 fort built to defend the Ribault Clubsouthern flank of Georgia when it was a colony.

Today’s visitors come for boating, fishing, off-road bicycling, and hiking. A key attraction is the restored. Once an exclusive resort, it is now a visitor center with a meeting space available for special functions. Behind the club, small boats, canoes, and kayaks can be launched on the tidal waters. To reserve the Club for a special event, contact The Ribault Club at 904-251-1050.
