Living the Dream...In Coastal Camden County, Georgia!
Just as the Spanish galleons of the 16th century left much of their treasures hidden beneath the deepest waters of coastal Georgia, Camden County offers up a treasure trove of rich history blending with the momentum of new growth. The result is a palpable sense of community pride that welcomes visitors and newcomers alike to become a part of what makes this corner of southeast Georgia so unique.
The historic charm of quaint bungalows and stately antebellums lining streets shaded by moss draped oaks...the bustle of shoppers in a neighborhood plaza...the friendly wave of the school crossing guard...the first class facilities of the regional medical center and four-year college...or the community's patriotic pride and support of their own Naval Submarine Base, Kings Bay...these are just a few of the first impressions that greet a newcomer as they acquaint themselves to the Camden County way of life. There is a sense of permanence here that has withstood generations of prosperity and decline. At the same time, this diverse community energizes as they work together to meet the challenges of growth to best serve the needs of its people.
The Camden County Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to the southeast corner of Georgia's pristine historic coast...Camden County!
