We stopped in here before going on the island. The lady working the counter was very helpful in pointing out some of the better things to see. Depending on your interest, they can point you in the right direction.

The helpful staff answered questions we had about the confusing toll to get on to Jekyll. A nice 2-story tower allows a view of the marsh.

Stopped at the Jekyll Island Guest Information Center. Workers did not greet the visitors. Fox News was blasting away on a big screen tv and it had their attention. The subject matter was not appropriate for families. I was looking at the carved bird decoys...More

We didn't ask for any information - mainly stopped to use the restrooms. There were lovely gift-type items to buy inside. The Center is located just before you enter the gates to the State Park where you have to pay a fee,
