    The Okefenokee Swamp Park was a great place to visit if you like wildlife. We saw a few gators from the parking lot before we even got inside. And also everywhere you look inside. First think we did w...  more »

    Such a cool place! Great spot to stop for a picnic, and then hike along the boardwalk through the swamp. Climb the 90' observation tower if you're brave (can be quite windy at the top). And, yes - you'll see gators everywhere.

    Awesome! The staff was very friendly and informative! Beautiful and informative boat and train rides can be purchased, there are other free things to do! The gift shop was also very nice!

    Awesome views, and awesome staff. You can hold gators, snakes, and turtles in your hands. And climb a tower for an amazing view.

    I've wanted to go here since I was a kid and it was SO great to finally see it! We were there for a few hours seeing the Christmas Light Show & Nature Show and we had a blast! Once the water levels get higher, we'll be coming back to take a boat ride and that's something I've always wanted to do out there! Thanks for still being around after all these years and I can't wait to come back this summer! :-)

    It was the week 'tween Christmas and New Year's Eve when I visited. The place is a geological wonder. The staff is gracious and courteous, owed to the fact that most everybody in Georgia is such. I wasn't in time for one of their evening tours so all the lights that had been strung were not on.
