We enjoyed the train ride and Peyton's snake and alligator interaction show. We missed the alligator feeding due to thunder storm which is common this time of year. We will go again.

Overall not that bad of a park just not a whole lot of things you can do, lots of deer flies, the staff is very friendly and we loved the reptile show.

Much better than anticipated...the boat tour was an excellent experience and the snake/baby gator show was very enjoyable. The most unexpected sight...a black bear rolling in water...once in a lifetime! Highly recommend...go and enjoy!!!

Park personnel are very passionate about the park. The train operator was very informative and knowledgeable and you could tell he cares about the park and the animals. Wish we could have seen a bear. The tower walk is well worth the time.

Nice side trip for our vacation-spent three hours walking short trails, taking in a nature center presentation and taking a train ride around the swamp. Audio on the train was very difficult to hear. Not as much to do as we hoped, but we had a nice time.

Our experience at the Okefenokee Swamp Park was great. The kids had a great time. The boat ride was fun and the guide was very informative. The nature show was fantastic. The kids enjoyed holding the snakes and alligator. The boat was very knowledgeable. The train ride was good too. We want to go back!

From Our Editors

Unlike navigators of yore, visitors to Okefenokee Swamp Park won't need machetes and iron wills to make it through the lush blackwater swamps along the Georgia–Florida border. The park's boardwalk trails and waterway tours provide a convenient entry point to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, where endless flora and fauna make their home in over 400,000 acres of pristine wilderness.

  • The Animals: Sunbathing alligators, playful otters, and majestic sandhill cranes thrive in the swamp's aquatic environment.
  • The Plants: Swamp grasses and lilies speckle the watery tree-lined trails, as do exotic plants such as the carnivorous bladderwort.
  • The Landmarks: Atop the 90-foot observation tower, visitors can take in sweeping views of the park and view the diverse ecosystem as a whole. On Pioneer Island, amateur historians can tour a recreation of an rustic swamp homestead.
