The Community

Candler County is located on the Wiregrass/Woodpecker Trail and has all the spirit and beauty that typifies the term “Southern Charm”. Situated on the I-16 corridor from Macon to Savannah, Metter extends a warm welcome to families moving to the area, visitors far from home, and businesses looking for new community partnerships. Our community has much to offer:

Guido Evangelistic Association and Guido Gardens. A Recreation Department that is supported by our community. The Metter-Candler County Airport has a 3800 ft. runway, which is being extended to 5000 ft. Candler County Hospital is certified as a “Critical Access” facility. Willow Lake Golf Club has an 18 hole golf course.

We are a short driving distance to Georgia Southern University, Ogeechee Technical College, Swainsboro Technical College, and East Georgia College. The port city of Savannah and its access to the Atlantic coastal waterways and beaches are only 65 miles from Metter. Nearby are George L. Smith State Park and Gordonia-Altamaha State Park, which provide camping, hiking, picnicking and excellent fishing opportunities. Our community offers small town quality that nurtures strong family values and our residents believe that… "Everything’s Better in Metter".
