“We enjoyed it. It is great for night skys and boating in the swamp”

Reviewed Jan 16, 2019

We really like this park. It was pretty cold during our stay so we didn't see as many gators as I would have liked ;-) Also be aware of the "flood stage" when you go - many of the hiking trails will be very wet. The boardwalk trail near the boat dock is awesome. It is pretty short but you have great views into the swamp and it i... more

“Great park”

Reviewed Nov 30, 2018

It’s all about the swamp! We had a great time kayaking. Loop with higher numbers are better sites, but some have very narrow entrances, and tough back in. Will definitely be back. We loved no cell service, but others may find it to be a problem. Campground store has snack food, and a few other essentials, and even nearest town (20... more

GA State Park in need of a refresh although campground was clean and staff friendly. Difficult to drive thru with large RV or with trailer at the campsites. Pot holes and too many trees next to loop road. In serious need of pruning and cutting. Most camp sites were not level. Make sure to check self and dogs for ticks. My small d... more

Great campground out in the Okefenokee. What impressed me was the absolute quiet with only the sounds of nature. Campsites were large, fairly private and mostly level. Clean restrooms and showers. Cell service is spotty at best, you may experience no service at all but this is a good place to disconnect and enjoy the experience.

We camped here 2 nights before the meteor shower in December and the stars were incredibly bright. The 1st loop was closed and we drove around and picked out our sight and we were one of the few campers there that night. We stayed in either 32 or 34. We backed up to the nature trail and had plenty of privacy and room to explore. We had... more

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.
