Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base is located in St. Marys, GA on the Southern Georgia Coast.
Kings Bay is home of the Atlantic Fleet's most modern nuclear ballistic submarines. This base is the only naval base capable of supporting the Trident II missile. The Trident II is a submarine-launched ballistic missile built by Lockheed Martin out of Sunnydale, CA.
In 1954, the U.S. Army began acquiring land at Kings Bay. The plan was to build an ocean terminal to ship ammunition; today the base is currently home to submarine Group 10, Squadron 16 and 20, Trident training, Trident Refit facility, Strategic Weapons facility as well as other support providing commands.
St. Marys is located between Brunswick, GA and Jacksonville, FL. There is easy access to Interstate 95; you can make it to the Jacksonville International airport in 20 minutes. It is only three hours from Orlando's theme parks.
There are many schools in the area, Camden Middle School, Crooked River Elementary, St Marys Elementary and Middle Schools, and Camden County High School.
The area has several refurbished townhomes and newly constructed homes for sale or rent. Most living places are apartments and condos. In the future there will be about 500 new, detached homes, which boast 2,300 square feet of living space and a two-car garage with energy efficient appliances. The average rent price for homes and apartments ranges from $500-$2,000.
Living on the St. Marys River offers many opportunities for boaters and avid fishermen. There are beautiful sunsets and gentle breezes over the marshes and waterways. If you like camping and going to the beach, both activities are easily accessible. Cumberland Island is a fun day trip. You can reach the island by the local ferry; and you may see wild horses freely roaming the island.
St. Marys has many quaint specialty shops and boutiques that offer all of the amenities that a small community needs.
There are several major employers in the area, Camden County Schools, Express Scripts, Lockheed-Martin, Wal-Mart and the Ritz-Carlton.
The base offers many Social Groups for personnel; they include KB Finnegan's, Circle of Moms and Navy Community Service Program.
