We were in our RV and had a great time. The place is in a very remote area about 1 hour from I75. I enjoyed every minute of the 2 day stop over while on vacation. Bring your food and supplies with you due to it being 17 miles to the very small town. The guided tour is great with... More

Me and the wife stayed in a cabin for one night. The cabin was surprisingly nice. Very roomy, clean, and reasonably furnished. You need to bring all your own shampoos and such. Also please note that you can not buy any food within 15 miles so prepare well. We had two bedrooms with two beds each and the only issue... More

We spent two nights if our honeymoon at campsite 14. Beautiful park!! Quiet and clean. We rented a canoe and visited Billies island. Truly breathtaking scenery, tons of wildlife and friendly park staff. We weren't prepared so we did have to stop back in town for food but the park does have some supplies including firewood. They're open until 5.... More

This park is in the middle of the Okefenokee National Park/Refuge. It is many miles away from any semblance of civilization. This is great for some folks, but will bother many others. We have stayed here twice, once in our camper, this last time in one of the nice cottages. The cottages are nice, but do not have queen beds,... More

The campground at Stephen Foster State Park is well maintained, spacious and peaceful. The sunset was stunning and the hooting owls a special natural treat. Clean restrooms/ showers. The staff at the welcome center were very pleasant and helpful. There are trails and boardwalks that are beautiful and easy to walk. The boat ride into the Okefenokee Swamp was stunning.... More

Huge and very well appointed cottages, right in the middle of the park. Very peaceful and resting after a full day kayaking the wild swamp. Super clean. Only one suggestion: bring the road and outdoors lights closer to the ground to limit their impact on the sky night and the stars. Friendly and helpful staff and rangers.

We stayed at the Eco Lodge in Fargo and it was wonderful! Very new, clean, mini kitchen with a screened in porch with rocking chairs. Short 15 minutes drive to the park and a nice bate shop and BP on the way. Spent one day renting a motorboat and the next day renting a canoe. Both of which gave us... More

We camped in the Pioneer Camp with a our church group. Very nice location and a great covered picnic area. They have boat rentals and a guided boat tour of the swamp. We did the guided tour and it was fun and very informative. We saw lots of gators up close. This is a beautiful park and well worth the... More

We drove over after spending the morning on the east side of the swamp. The good news was that the pass we purchased on the east side allowed us to park here as well. The last boat ride was at 3pm. We arrived at 3:15. We walked the trail and took some great photos. We enjoyed watching the rangers try... More
