We rented a cabin in the park for three nights. The cabins are clean and basic. We took the ranger guided tour the first day, and then rented one canoe and one kayak the second. Being out on the water is the only way to really get a sense of this part of the park, though the Boardwalk is interesting... More

We visited here on a Sunday morning. It is a quiet and beautiful park. We kayaked for four hours. We kayaked to Billy's Island and hiked around the island. We saw so many alligators! Everyone at the park was friendly! We hope to return soon and do an overnight kayak trip!

This was our second visit to this park. It is. Great place to get an up close experience of the Okefenokee swamp. When we were there before, the water level was too low for the boats to make ou for the tour, so that was our main goal this trip. The boat tour ws interesting, saw lots of gators and... More

We stopped at the State Park for 3 days while traveling to another destination. , We had made reservations for a 50ft site to hold our 39ft 5th wheel and were glad we did. We had site 59, and it took some maneuvering to get out when we left but the site was large enough for a comfortable stay. We... More

We stayed here for two nights on a tent only campsite. The place was booked when we got there with only one site left, it was still a great. :) The boys loved the low palms that acted as a great place for "maze tag". We had two good spots to set up our hammocks and the ground was pretty... More

We stayed in the Parks cottages which were well furnished and equipped immaculate and comfortable! Make sure you take the boat tour and book the evening tour too... More

We had a six person the cottage for $150 per night. There was nothing left to be desired. Very spacious, very clean, fully equipped kitchen, (somewhat dated) barbecue facilities right outside, spacious screened front porch to enjoy the evenings outside. Efficient air conditioning. As in many national and state park facilities, there was no Wi-Fi. But to us this is... More

I've been visiting this park since I was a teen. There's a lot to do & tons of wildlife. The cabins were always nice & clean. Not so this time. I had fun with my family, but it was subpar compared to how I remember it. The cabin floor was dirty, the stove was broken, the screen door handle was... More

This park is located in the middle of nowhere. Even Verizon has slow, spotty text ability but no data, so if the weather is looking sketchy to begin with, bring a weather radio. It rained while we were on the swamp and one of the nights we were there, but we still had a blast! The sites in the first... More

This was actually our second time camping here. The park is out in the middle of no where. Just keep driving until you can't drive anymore and then you are there. We have camped at the Pioneer site with our church twice. There are cold water showers and porta potties at the camp site. The skeeters can be pretty bad... More
