Welcome to Okefenokee Swamp, GA

This privately owned and operated park serves as the northern entrance to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, offering exhibits and orientation programs for the entire family. The park has observation areas, wilderness walkways, an outdoor museum of pioneer life, and boat tours into the swamp that reveal its unique ecology. The 90-foot-tall observation tower is an excellent place to glimpse cruising gators and birds. A 1½-mi train tour (included in the admission price) passes by a Seminole village and stops at Pioneer Island, a re-created pioneer homestead, for a 15-minute walking tour. - Copyright © 2014 by Fodor’s Travel, a division of Random House, LLC.
