  • Very fun and educational day adventure for the whole family. My boys and myself enjoyed spending the day seeing so much of the swamp. The boat tour, the nature trails and all.
  • Wonderful family fun and very educational. If you can make sure to take the Okefenokeeology class with Mr. Don Berryhill. Just a beautiful place and they are celebrating the 70th anniversary this Saturday October 8th. Free Admission.
  • My daughter's favorite place. Get up close and personal with gators and snakes. Take a boat ride or catch the train!!
  • Wonderful swamp experience! Incredible boat ride into the swamp to see all kinds of wildlife, snakes, alligators, spiders and beavers! Very knowledgeable guides so you can understand the history behind what you are seeing. First time ever touching and holding snakes and turtles!
  • A natural treasure nestled in the heart of South Georgia, it is a place brimming with natural wonders and items of historical significance. It's a bit pricy for the train and boat tour in my opinion, and I can't stress the need for insect repellent enough (I'm still scratching a couple of bites from there today), but it is as close as you can get to seeing this region from a primordial point of view.
