Wayne County

Deep in the heart of southeast Georgia, on the banks of the mighty Altamaha River, Wayne County beckons visitors and newcomers alike. Visitors and residents often call Wayne County “a little piece of paradise.” The beauty of the natural environment, the diversity of recreational opportunities, and the welcoming small-town atmosphere have become known far and wide among outdoorsmen and visitors.

Jesup is the county seat of Wayne County, which is located on the Altamaha River, the largest river in the Southeast with 157 miles of fishing, camping, canoeing, boating and water skiing. A national scenic river, the Altamaha is a favorite site of nature photographers. Boat landings can be found at various points within the county and along the entire river.


About 5 miles from Jesup, on the banks of the Altamaha River, is historic Doctortown. This site was once a thriving town, sawmill, railroad and steamboat center.
