We are OPEN, we are gladly taking any displaced RV'ers and welcome shelter in place RVs. If you want a Weekly or Monthly RV site just call the Office (912)496-4472, we will be glad to give you a price.
We are following CDC Guidelines for our Cabins and common areas, we are enforcing personal separation and have advanced cleaning procedures in place. This is a great place to shelter in place as there is plenty of space to get out and walk about and with trails both on the property and connecting with the Okefenokee, there is plenty of outside to explore.
If you have a self-contained Unit we expect/require that you use your own facilities until the Covid19 fiasco is over. The Campground bathhouse is now reserved for the 2 cabins without bathrooms, tent sites and those RV's that do not have their own bathrooms, by observing this rule it will provide less risk for our guests as well as cleaning staff and less chemical usage (saving the environment).
Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge is an awesomely vast expanse of wilderness southern swamp covering approximately 700 square miles and located mostly in the southeast corner of Georgia, U.S.A. The Okefenokee is crisscrossed by over 120 miles of paddle and motorboat water trails. It is a major destination for wetlands nature lovers paddlers and boaters. The Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge offers a good number of wonderfully easy to sometimes extremely challenging day use paddle only water trails. Also, enjoy numerous excitingly fun to navigate dual-use paddle or motorboat water trails all set up for the public to access without an overnight permit or fee requirement. A very controlled and limited number of overnight wilderness paddle trail fee permits for overnight camping paddlers are issued through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (the administrative and managing government agency at Okefenokee NWR).
We are located in one of the darkest sky areas in the Southeast (little unnatural light pollution). With the dark skies in this beautiful part of GA, it makes it possible, to gaze towards the stars and dream like so many other countless generations before have done.
Cats are not allowed in any cabin, 1 Dog is allowed in Basic & Deluxe cabins however there will be a $25.00 charge per day for cleaning (multi-night fee may be refunded of up to 50% if excessive cleaning/deodorizing is not needed). Pet fees don't include damage caused by a pet, any damage caused will be immediately billed to CC on file for repairs.
Fire at this place is healthy, beneficial and a very normal occurrence for the Okefenokee Swamp. We have some fires here in the swamp every year. The most recent big fires will greatly improve aquatic and upland habitats and the overall long term health of the Okefenokee ecosystem.
According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, over 400,000 visitors a year come to this exotic region in the southeastern tip of the State of Georgia. That is probably conservative. On the fringes of this boggy landscape that are outside federal property boundaries, there are farmsteads and hamlets, where residents have hunted and fished in the swamp for many generations.
The Comfort, the Cleanliness, the Privacy, the safety, the Price, the Convenience, the Fun, and More. Stay in the countryside in your own personal independent charming little cottage in the woods, relax in the great outdoors, and enjoy the spaciousness of this rural Southeast setting. For a little more than a motel room, you will get a nicely appointed Private Cabin (no noisy neighbors in the room next to or above & below you), no recycled air from your neighbors room or the rest of the building, a nicer setting, use of all the amenities the Campground offers and you can not stay any closer to the Okefenokee NWR (swamp).Motels can be weird, generic, impersonal, and sometimes depressing, people just on the other side of the wall, bed bugs and little privacy. We suggest that you – think outside of that same ole box and try our Cabins. We think you will be very happy you did.
