  • 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.
