Folkston, Georgia

Traders Hill Park features a primitive campsite, picnic tables, barbecue pits, picnic shelter, restrooms, nature trails, a boat ramp, and a fishing pier. There is ample parking and docking space. Known originally as Fort Alert, the park was established in the 1700s. Traders Hill Park has been developed at the site of the old courthouse, when Traders Hill was the county seat in 1854.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.

Source Information

St. Mary’s Riverkeeper monitors water quality at 45 sites throughout the watershed in Florida and Georgia. Anna Laws is the Riverkeeper. If testing results raise an alarm, we assess the situation and often do additional testing and follow the science upstream to identify and hopefully initiate corrective action to relieve the problem.

Water at most sites is sampled for E. coli bacteria. Some sites have additional chemical data gathered on a regular basis which may include: specific conductance, Dissolved Oxygen, Total Dissolved Solids, PH, Salinity, Temperature and Turbidity.

Results are communicated to the public on the St. Mary’s Riverkeeper web site as well as Georgia’s Adopt-A-Stream database. Press releases to local media outlets often result in visibility in local publications.

The EPA E. coli standards for human recreation are or a one-time measurement equal to or less than 235 cfu/100 ml (Note: EPA BAV: 235 E. coli/100 mL)

A swim is marked GREEN when it meets the EPA’s recommended limit of E. coli for recreational waters, or less than 235 cfu/100 ml.
