Spaceport: Where is the proposed rocket launching facility in Georgia?

Camden County has been working since 2015 to get approvals needed to build Spaceport Camden in Kingsland near Georgia’s coast.

The proposed 12,000-acre facility, at the end of Harriets Bluff Road in Kingsland, is north of the Florida state line and about 35 miles south of Brunswick.

The area near the site is also home to Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Cumberland Island, Little Cumberland Island, the Satilla River and picturesque marshes. It is not far from Fernandina Beach in northeast Florida.

Little Cumberland Island has about 100 parcels split among about 60 families, though very few people live there year-round, the AJC has reported. Cumberland Island has a handful of year-round residents, but about 60,000 people visit the Cumberland Island National Seashore, a national park, annually.
