Moon River Access

 

Directions to the Frank O. Downing Fishing Pier

Diamond Causeway, Savannah GA 31406

The Frank O. Downing Fishing Pier parallels the Diamond Causeway bridge over the Moon River. Just south of the bridge, the fishing pier is actually two piers, east and west, that are separated by a boat channel. Each section of the pier has an associated parking area at its respective end of the bridge. Pedestrian access from the west parking area to the pier is direct, since the parking area is on the same side of Diamond Causeway as the pier; pedestrian access from the east parking area, which is north of the causeway, is via a sidewalk that takes you underneath the bridge.
