The annual Labor Day Catfish Festival in Kingsland, Georgia, attracts a huge crowd of over 65,000 people over three days.
This festival celebrates catfish, and you just have to taste the yummy catfish served at this event. The catfish is prepared according to a secret recipe that has been used for years. About 10,000 pounds of farm-raised catfish is prepared for the festival, so you know that this is a popular dish at the event. The catfish go on sale at 12:00 noon on Saturday and Sunday and 11:00 a.m. on Labor Day. Other menu items include the famous deep-fried onion blossoms, oriental fare, barbecue, and homemade ice cream.
We have included the Festival Calendar below for your convenience:
Most Dad’s love camping. Grilling food, campfires, a lazy afternoon in the swimming pool. So we want to make sure Dad has a great Father’s day weekend this year. If you come spend Father’s day with us he can enjoy the great outdoors and have fun with some of our Father’s day specials. What are we planning?
Well we are still working on the details but we’re thinking:
- Saturday night Karaoke sounds like a blast!
- Every Dad needs a friendly game of Horseshoe’s.
- How bout if Dad get’s a FREE ice cream sundae with his choice of toppings?
So why not go ahead and reserve a spot today?
This Memorial Day Weekend will be a great start to the summer camping season. Our pool is open and ready for the kids. We also have several fun events planned for the weekend including:
Wacky “Junk Food” Waffle Breakfast
Build a Sundae Ice Cream Party
Kids Scavenger Hunt
Evening Big Screen Movie
Wii Bowling Tournament
So make your reservation today via our KOA online reservation system.
Don’t forget this weekend is the Funtastic “Mardi Gras” festival in downtown St Mary’s! You can expect a Saturday designed to be family friendly filled with live music, a Parade (and a Pet parade), Lot’s of Bead throwing, ton’s of local foods, and arts and crafts. Once again the Great Camden County Chili Cook-Off is a part of Mardi Gras, which adds more food and extra spice to an already great event.

Organizers are expecting 20,000+ people to attend some or all of the festival. As tastes go in music and food, the association is hopeful of pleasing a wide range of revelers. Food vendors will offer the obligatory crawfish and Creole dishes, barbecue, some Filipino dishes and the typical festival food.
