Middle of the Okefenokee swamp, woke up to deer in the adjacent campsite. One camper said they experienced an alligator under their truck. Kayaks and canoes are available for rent is you want to see the wildlife closer… motorboats canned be rented of you'd rather they keep their distance :-)
And lots of it!
We went in April, which the staff said was the “less mosquito-y” time of year, so I can’t imagine how bad it gets moving forward! However, despite the bugs, we still had a great time!
It rained a good bit (and our site flooded slightly so make sure to take care when choosing where to pitch your tent). The camp store is also where you can rent canoes. There is a nature trail just a few steps from the store. While out on the canoe we found one of the paddle-in locations as well. Tons of beautiful wildlife and gators to see along the way as well.
The restroom area had a screened in porch (much needed!) and was clean and well stocked during our stay.
Great place to camp if you have a boat. Shore fishing is limited. They have a fishing pier, but it’s small and you have limited areas to cast. The campsites are close, but they have grills and tables at every site. They have good rates. I paid $16 for a Saturday night. Not a bad campground at all.
I love Jekyll Island! It has a great campground and it's within walking/biking distance to the beach. I go over there as often as I can. It's family friendly and pet friendly. It's always clean and the sites are a pretty good size too. The bathouses are clean.
Laura Walker SP is located at Okefenokee Wildlife Refuge and is a designated dark sky park. The campground is clean and level. Lots of trees, but the sites are not crowded. Showers and bathroom were clean with lots of hot water. Hiking, wildlife.
This place is not too far out and has rv and primitives campsites with nice fire rings. You can swim in the lake and there are two bath houses. You can kayak and fish. Also if you buy firewood from the check in office they will deliver it to you campsite. Sites aren't very private. But not too expensive. There is no store on site though. So you will always need to leave the grounds if you forgot anything.
The lake is beautiful and the trails are well maintained.
Nice smaller campground, Relaxing and quiet. Has a window of time when boats on jetskis can be on the water allowing for a more peaceful atmosphere in the morning and evening. Down side only 2 sites have full hook up with one being the camp host.. showers and restrooms were clean but without full hookup I expected them to be bigger… 4 showers for 30+ sites on a lake seems light. However we had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed being able to kayak without worrying about boats & jetskis
Small campground with some campsites that are Lakeside. Brand new bathhouse. Very nice golf course, driving range and store. Brand new office and ranger station. A pretty little campground. They do have a splash pad, mini golf course, and playgrounds for kids. There is a short nature trail. We like to go here once or twice a year when we don't have a long weekend and just want to get away for a couple days.
Beautiful and well maintained campground. Loved the canoeing and the hiking. Camped in February 2018 to go to a free concert in St. Mary's. We loved the campground so much we came back in March 2018 to go to Swamp Town Get Down in Waycross at the fairgrounds.
Jekyll Island is very bike and runner friendly. The island is not over developed but still has a few restauants, stores and places tonhave a few drinks. The campground is very shady and has alot of beautiful oak trees. The campsites for campers have power, water and sewage and are all pretty level. the bathrooms are clean and in good locations.
