open your blinds early and enjoy your morning coffee while watching deer, turkeys, and maybe a bear or gator.

This is the first Georgia State Park I have visited. We were about the only ones there. Is was peaceful and beautiful. Must rent a boat and take it down the swamp-one of the best times of my life!

The cabins are clean & nice, but need some minor maintenance attention, i.e., light bulbs, A/C filter cleaning. Comfy beds, large rooms & nice screened porch with ceiling fans. We also camp there with our travel trailer.

Come prepared to relax. Very quiet area. No cell coverage, no Internet, a GREAT place to unplug. Enjoy!

Yellow flies are bad at certain times of the year. Also the boat rentals are unreliable. We broke down twice in two different boats and had to row in in a thunderstorm. Camping spots are really nice and there is lots of wildlife for viewing

From Our Editors

There is one entrance to Okenfenokee Swamp. When visiting Stephen C. Foster State Park, you can see spanish moss draped from tall branches, cyprus knees rising out of black waters, and alligators, deer, and herons exploring their native habitat. There are more than 12,000 American Alligators in the swamp. Visitors can see them from boats on their own or on tours of the 402,000-acre refuge. For a more in-depth study, attend a southeastern snake encounter or astronomy session to see more than meets the eye. Visitors can stay in cabins either at Stephen C Foster State Park or at the Suwannee River Eco Lodge, location 17 miles south from the park.
