Nice camping spot

The camping area is not very large, so no big crowds. It is on a lake and is well cared for. There are several new cabins for those who are not campers.

beautiful park and great place to hold a haunted hayride. I was one of the helpers. The cabins and the hayride were all within easy walking distance. Would go again to see the park

Didn't see any gators. Enjoyed the picnic area with friends. Calm peaceful day in summer. There was a scheduled activity for children to make bird feeders.

We love to drive the extra miles to play Laura S. Walker's golf course! Reasonably priced under $30/18 holes, the course is very quiet during the week, and we almost feel as if we have our own course, especially once school has started. The course is challenging but fair for a moderate golfer like us. Greens were in bad shape... More

Take in a game one day and go to the Okeefenokee Swamp Park the next. The park itself s minimal. Lake for boating.

Beautiful place to visit! The cabins are great for parties - and there's a playground for the kids around the cabins. There's a camp site also, which looks like fun - but I don't camp!! It's nice to get out in nature at this park!

The staff at this park were very helpful and pleasant. The only negative we had about the facility we rented is that it did not have a sink in the kitchen area. This was very inconvenient when preparing food.

This review is about my experience at the Lakes Golf Course at Laura S. Walker State Park. It's a nice course! Don't expect fast greens or perfectly manicured conditions. However, do expect a challenging, varied layout with a good mix of doglegs in both directions, water, as well as strategically placed bunkers and waste areas. What impressed me the most,... More

This is an inexpensive way to spend quality family time time... we took electronics but forgot them in the car. We took walks in the woods on Trails, see gator in the lake/pond by cabin. Lots of bugs but alot of fun...
