Directions to Priest Landing Launch Site

Follow Diamond Causeway onto Skidaway Island, proceed through two traffic lights, and then get in the left lane. Take the next left (at the four-way stop) onto McWhorter Drive and proceed north, passing underneath a golf-cart bridge in approximately one and one-half miles. In another six-tenths of a mile the road forks; bear right onto OSCA Road and follow it approximately one mile to the bank of the Wilmington River. Park here along the side of the road (at no charge). When parking, be careful not to obstruct the paved driveway to the right, which provides access to a dock owned by the State of Georgia.
