The Ebenezer Creek is a scenic black water creek that flows through Effingham County and connects to the Savannah River at the Ebenezer Historic site. Lined with cypress and Tupelo trees, it is an beautiful creek for canoeing and kayaking. Multiple access points allow for easy going short trips along the creek, or longer full day paddles.
Each December the Georgia Conservancy hosts a guided historical tour of the creek. Participants learn about the first settlers of Effingham County, the Georgia Salzburgers, and how they founded their settlement of Ebenezer at the base of the creek. Not to mention the Old Augusta Road crossing where Sherman's Army navigated the creek on their path to Savannah.
History, Nature and Recreation are all notable aspects of this creek, and are all reasons to book your trip today!
