About Clam Creek Picnic Area
Clam Creek Picnic area is one of three picnicking facilities on the island. Clam Creek Road is just across from the campground on the North end of the island, and winds down through a mixed oak-saw palmetto forest. On one side is Clam creek, the other, the salt marsh giving you beautiful views along the way to the fishing pier. This is also where the horseback riding on the beach is offered by Victoria’s Carriages. The bike trail leads you down Clam Creek Road then takes you through the marsh on one of the most scenic areas of the island.

About Jekyll Island
From the early Native Americans to guests from around the world, the story of our island has been captivating the imaginations of explorers for generations.
In 1733, General James Oglethorpe named Jekyll Island in honor of Sir Joseph Jekyll, his friend and financier from England. In the late 1800s, Jekyll Island became an exclusive hunting club for families with names like Rockefeller, Morgan, Vanderbilt, Pulitzer, and Baker. The once private retreat is now part of The Jekyll Island Club National Historic Landmark District, one of the largest preservation projects in the southeast.
In 1947, the Governor and the Georgia state legislature established Jekyll Island as a State Park. Today, the island is a special sanctuary for each of us – and the Jekyll Island Authority is proud to share our island’s history.
