The Camden County Courthouse (or Old Camden County Courthouse) is a two-story courthouse in the US city of Woodbine, Georgia.

The courthouse was entered into the United States' National Register of Historic Places in 1980;[1] it is a contributing building in the Woodbine Historic District, which was listed on the NRHP in 1999.[1][2]

The building was designed by Julian de Bruyn Kops (1862–1942). Since its completion in 1928, it has served not only as a courthouse for Georgia's Camden County, but also as a venue for meetings, commerce, and other functions.[2]

It was nominated for the NRHP as Georgia's only 20th-century example of Late Gothic Revival architecture.[3] It sports a brick façade, castellated portico and parapets, and rectangular windows with crown molding.[2][3]
