My 12-year-old son and I visited Jo and Steve at Okefenokee Pastimes over Spring Break, April 2014, and I just realized I forgot to leave them a review. If you are interested in a casual, comfortable stay while learning more about the beautiful and fascinating Okefenokee Swamp, I hope you'll consider Okefenokee Pastimes. The cabin was clean and comfortable and... More

We stayed a night here at one of the deluxe cabins with a bathroom. They were very clean and had everything you could need for a night or two (fridge, microwave, dishes, comfy beds including bunk beds for our sons, warm blankets and sheets, a shower, filtered water, etc. I could tell the owners put a lot of thought into...

The location, right next to the East entrance to the park is great. The tour that Steve gave us was worth every penny and more. He sets off nice and early so you are in the park before anyone else, and the mist was rising from the swamp as we set off. Magical. We were lucky enough to hear the... More

I staryed here several times years ago with my children and we loved it. I recently returned with a friend and was pleased to find that it's still a wonderful spot. The furnished cabins are very clean and homey. Not fancy, but just the thing for your adventures in the Okefenokee as they are right outside the East entrance. Jo... More

We spent two days in the Okefenokee area in the beginning of June, and it was such a nice experience. Everything we had hoped for, actually. We stayed in the Armadillo cabin which is a deluxe cabin; very clean and it provided all that we needed (a fridge, a table, a coffee maker, a restroom, a comfortable bed). Perfect for... More

We spent a lovely vacation at Okefenokee Pastimes in February 2013. We researched a lot of information, both on TA and other places before deciding where to stay and how to see the swamp, and were very happy with our choice. Okefenokee Pastimes is located on the east side of the Okefenokee Swamp. The east side is a more open... More

On our way north we stopped over at the Okefenokee Swamp for a day tour. Thru their website we were able to make reservations for a half a day trip with Steve. Responses were prompt and the contact was very nice. The tour Steve took us on was great. He is a knowledgeable guide, that can tell a lot about... More

You can stay in a very clean, tasteful and affordable cabin or bring your own RV or tent. You can book kayak tours with owners Jo and Steve! This place is special, and it's the closest accommodation to the Refuge which is a gem of the SE!

We decided to stop in Okefenokee on our way home from Florida. I researched and found these cabins. The website is somewhat pedantic, but the cabins seemed charming so we booked for 2 nights. We were arriving on Sunday, when they are closed, so we had a 1 hour window to check in. That made the drive a little nerve-wracking.... More

We stayed here 3 nights and did 2 of the kayak tours, one guided in the swamp and the other a shuttle to/from the St Mary's river. We stayed in a deluxe cabin. It was small but very well appointed and lacked for nothing, well, except space. The mini little screen porch was nice but temps were too chilly the... More
