Visitor Tips and News About Tree Spirits of St. Simons Island
New development is well under way and most lots contain a home now. It was fun to search out the "spirits" but felt a little strange creepin' around the neighborhood. I'm not sure how many "spirits" are there to find, but we only saw two.[Drumbabe, 07/31/2013]
Map correction! Coming onto island on Kings Way make first right turn AFTER Fairway Drive. Park Loop is no longer there! Large group of the Tree Spirits are in an undeveloped development called Village Oaks.[Mavis & Jeff, 10/28/2011]
