Kingfisher Pond Recreation Area

Entrance sign on US 17

The Kingfisher Pond Recreation Area is part of Savannah NWR located north of the Visitor Center on US Hwy 17. There is no street address.


The pond is a borrow pit dug out to build the overpass of US 17 over SC 170 just to the south.


Park near the boat landing and the entrance to the trail is on your left. This is an easy (although sometimes muddy) trail that circles the pond back to the parking area. It also gives access to the Tupelo Trail, the last remnant of the original dike system, located along the northern boundary of the managed impoundment system.


The pond has become quite overgrown with vegetation but fishing is available. The dock was built several years ago as an Eagle Scout project.
