New phone number for camp is 229-412-0558.
Love the quietness. Couple that owns the camp are delightful. If you are looking for a getaway from hustle and bustle this is the place.

Is this facility still open? I've been calling for a week with no answer and no option to leave a message.

Stayed last week at Griffis Camp and a week before out at Stephen C. Foster for 9 days. Each has its own great qualities but I really liked the serenity, wildlife, beautiful night sky and uncrowded atmosphere at Griffis. The camp sites are huge and there are shelters at most with incredible fireplaces.

The most important aspect of this camp is its owners..The Griffis. Mr and Mrs. Griffis are two of the most interesting and pleasant folks you will ever meet.

Stopped here during our Suwanee River Camping trip. Wonderful hot showers, great rates but most of all meeting Mr Griffis was the highlight. He shared some local history and his taxidermy with us. We hope to go back.

They say things happen for a reason and I believe we were meant to find this place. My boyfriend and I tried to snag a last-minute tent site at Stephen Foster Park to enjoy some kayaking and fishing but were referred to "the Fish Camp down the road" as the park was at capacity. We were welcomed by Mr. Al ("not O-w-l like the wise bird") Griffis who invited us in to see his mini-museum of archaeological and animal finds. We laughed and shared stories with him over some of the coolest "museum" items I've ever seen in a personal collection.
The camping prices are super reasonable and cheaper than the State Park. Mr. Al is one of the nicest and most welcoming camp hosts we have ever met and many of his sites have fire pits, little shelters with picnic tables and big ole bench swings to relax on. He provided us with firewood and we sat on the swing looking at the stars long into the night. Met a guy with his family who says he's been coming to Griffis' Camp for years and that you can even paddle from Stephen Foster down the Suwanee River Narrows and end up at the boat ramp on Mr. Al's property! Bathrooms are super clean and have nice hot showers that won't cost you anything. Truly a gem - can't wait to come back here!

My wife and I are avid RV campers. We traveled to Jekyll Island, GA for a few days of r&r during 2016 Christmas holidays. Jekyll was very nice this time of year. The campground was booked and full. Although the visit was extremely enjoyable, we tend to like a rustic backwoods setting.

After our reservation was up (we could only get 3 nights due to high demand during the holiday season, last minute travelers) we set out on a new adventure.

After much consideration, we decided to travel a couple of hours to the Okefenokee Swamp. We found The Griffis Fish Camp. This campground is in the middle of nowhereville. Seclusion, rustic, and historic. Right on The Suwannee River. It's roots go back to 1930. Still family owned. Full hookups $20 per night.

Well worth the visit.

We found this campground by accident, there was one review from trip advisor, said great place to relax, it not only is that, but is a great place to view wildlife, husband saw a 6 point buck the morning we were leaving. It's not the usual campground, more like the campgrounds of 30 or 40 years ago, campsites are accessed by dirt roads, but do have hookups for up to 50 amp. There are modern bathhouses, one for men, other for women, very clean. Water has sulphur smell, but great for washing hair, natural conditioner. Water to the campsites is odor free. There are covered picnic tables featuring fireplace type grills, running water, all within 300 yards of beautiful, slow moving Suwannee River, faces on paved Ga 177, 9 miles from Fargo, near Stephen Foster State Park. Friendly owner/mgr is a retired school principal, enjoys wildlife, feeding the fish in a lake across the road from the campsite location. Shellcracker fish jump as he throws out the fish feed. THe cabin there is furnished with collectibles from the 50's and earlier. This has been a family business, his parents had a motel there, no longer there. We had the campground all to ourselves. There are no drink machines or snack machines, so take your groceries when you go. Boat launch is $2, campsite cost us $10 each person. Flowers are abundant, bamboo bushes galore, owner is also a taxidermist, ask him to show you the bobcats, bear, hog, and deer he has on display in the old fashioned office. He also has an antique cash register, says he doesn't keep cash in it, has a great sense of humor also. We'll be going back. No bright lights, no laundromat, but can't be beat for quietness and relaxation.
