“Peaceful natural surroundings”

Reviewed Dec 06, 2017

We camped here in 2013 simply sleeping in the back of our pick up. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a thousand pictures. This will give you an idea exactly what to expect :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaseI_8CNp0&list=PL2v8LB6vz74sfHnqrsK05tUxQ04kIz1ZN&index=6 I don't know if they still condu... more

My wife and I stayed at this park for three nights following Thanksgiving 2017. It was a wonderful experience! There was lots of wildlife all around the camp including dear, raccoons, alligators, and all sorts of birds. This RV camp is in a state park which is located inside a national wildlife preserve. Our site was located amongst ... more

Definitely one of my favorite places to stay East of the Mississippi. And if you do not bring some kayak or boat, renting one with be worth every penny. We saw more gators here than anywhere else in the South. And all the other wildlife was amazing as well. Campground provided a good amount of privacy for each site, although they ar... more

“One of our all time favorite campgrounds!”

Reviewed Apr 23, 2016

We have camped here numerous times in past 10 years. Our most recent trip was in March, 2016. I second what all the other reviewers have said about this park. It is a wonderful place to camp far away from civilization. Bring everything with you. We camped in one of the 50+ foot pull through campsites in a 35 foot fifth wheel. The pr... more

“Awesome campground in the middle of the swamp. ”

Reviewed Jan 06, 2016

Overall Rating

We loved this campground -- it's in the middle of the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge and just a beautiful place to camp. The sites are varied in size, all with plenty of trees and grass and with electric and water (no sewer). The entrance to the campground is not the same as the day-use park entrance, so check the directions befor... more

We just happened to stop here on our way to Anastasia State Park in FL. The campground is well taken care of with nice clean restrooms. We paddled the swamp trail and was so surprised how beautiful and serene it was. You can rent canoes, kayaks and power boats at the park office. Deer are everywhere around dusk and so are the nats.... more

“The best place to stay to visit the stunning Okefenokee Swamp”

Reviewed Feb 21, 2015

This was our second stay here. It is a very nice, wooded park with decent sites. Reservations are allowed, but you pick your campsite when you arrive. We had a pull-through with water and electric. We visited during the month of April before the hot and buggy season, but we did have some pretty heavy spring rain one day and one... more

“Beautiful Georgia Swamp”

Reviewed Jan 05, 2015

Overall Rating

Stephen C Foster is not an easy park to get to. The drive to the park is about 45 minutes off the main highway traveling from Macon towards Gainesville. Its about 45 minutes from Valdosta. It can be brutally hot in the summer and the mosquitos are everywhere. You are going to see alligators if you decide to venture onto the swamp. W... more
