About KingslandIf you’re looking for a return to nature and simpler times, Kingsland is a good place to lay your head. It lies 30 miles east of Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge and 11 miles west of the coast where visitors can board a ferry for the 45-minute ride to Cumberland Island. The city limits are just north of the Florida-Georgia state line.
In November, the Kingsland Catfish Festival includes a catfish fishing tournament, arts and crafts, and Southern-fried and Cajun catfish.

A rating of one to five AAA Diamonds tells members what type of experience to expect, from no-frills to highly personalized.
