Camping at Laura Walker State Park is great! Like Georgia State Parks, you don't "reserve" a spot, you make a reservation and pick your spot from the ones available when you arrive. The campsites are being upgraded, the lake has been drawn down to accommodate the completion of a walkway over the lake connecting hiking trails. This is a State... More

Picturesque state park. I like to cut-through here en route to the Okeefenokee swamp Park. Great for pic-nicks....take bug spray however.

The playground is perfect for kids. They have plenty of buildings to rent. They also have plenty of shelters with grills to rent. The only issue I have is the $5.00 park fee. It can get costly so we don't go that much. I think a dollar or two would be a better price. You can pay for a yearly... More

We camped there for two nights. We planned on staying here so we could attend a family reunion and because I have great childhood memories of this park. Unfortunately, the lake had been drained since last fall and it might be drained for a year or so. The smell from the mud was atrocious. The purpose for the draining was... More

What a gem. This was a lovely state park. We just had some time to kill after going to the Okefenokee and drove over. We hiked a nice flat trail through the woods and over by the lake. It is a very clean park and the people there were very friendly. I would recommend a visit for picnics, afternoon hikes,... More

If you're local and need a place to gather the family and have a nice day out, this place is great. Near Halloween they host a hay ride and a variety of activities that my kids love.

Beautiful scenery, fascinating wildlife. Clean and neat. Only downside was the bicyclist who got her ankle chewed by a local bulldog---careful!

My family loves to visit the Laura S. Walker State Park. The scenery is absolutely beautiful and there is so much to do. The lake area is gorgeous and a great place to spend the day!
