  • Train and boat tour along with a guided walking tour to different buildings around the entrance. $27 per person ages 3 and up. It took about 4 hours to do everything. PLENTY of alligators to see!!
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • I liked this place over the park that is outside of Folkstrum Ga. Okefenokee Swamp Park has much more to offer and the boat guides will stop and give you time to take your pictures. There are several shows you can catch and various wildlife displays. If I lived in the area I would most definitely get a years pass and use it.
  • My daughter's favorite place. Get up close and personal with gators and snakes. Take a boat ride or catch the train!!
