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

The campground here is awesome. Beautifully maintained, beautiful scenery, convenient location within park. Well spaced sites with some pull through options. The cabins are okay if you don't want to camp. They were outdated but were clean and had all the amenities you need. A little expensive but considering you don't have many options, not too bad. The park itself... More

Stayed in Cabin #7 for three nights with three kids and three adults in late March 2013. Two rooms with two full size beds in each room (4 beds total) - full kitchen and screen porch. Great park and very helpful park staff. Took the guided swamp tour, and on the next day rented a motorized john boat to explore... More

We had a wonderful trip with extended family and stayed overnight in one of the cabins at Stephen Foster State Park. The cabin was very comfortable, roomy with a full modern kitchen and a big table to seat 6-8. Living room seating area, one bedroom with 2 double beds, one with twin beds, and a bathroom with lots of towels.... More

Great park, helpful staff. We went down in February, the wate rwas high and the weather mild, so we were able to get "back in there" to see some cool sights. Lots of gators seen, some birds, turtles, etc. Fishing was awful (high, cold water). The boat rentals are a great deal. We rented a 16ft john boat with 10hp... More
