Home of the Kingsland Catfish Festival
Kingsland Georgia is Oprah’s Lovetown USA! Located in the far southeast corner of the Georgia coast, off of Interstate 95 at Exit 3, stop in and see why Oprah Winfrey selected us to be 'Lovetown, USA'.
The beauty of the area is in the people and the variety of landscapes. Meandering rivers wind through dense marshlands, challenging golf quietly exists among tidal creeks and marsh grass, river shores and lakes are brimming with wildlife and the skies are filled with birds.
Kingsland is now becoming more recognized for new business development due to its accessibility from I-95, Jacksonville International Airport and Kings Bay Naval Base.
