Seafood stars at Skipper's, but you must start with a cup of Brunswick Stew. It is redolent of sweet, smoky pork and also includes pulled chicken, big hunks of tomato, lima beans, and corn.

Whereas the classic fish camp is ramshackle and raggedy, Skipper's is ship-shape. Those are swanky condos in the background.

Fishing boats that ply the waters just off the coast for sweet Georgia shrimp are berthed just outside Skipper's.

Across the Darien River is the Altamaha Bio Reserve, where you can paddle a kayak through old-growth cypress and glimpse alligators, bald eagles, sea turtles, osprey and otter.
