Rustic and wild! There are a ton of alligators and other wildlife. Very picturesque. Felt completely safe kayaking even with the alligators. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. You could ask Zach any questions about wildlife and he knew the answers.
One of my favorite places to visit in Georgia. Top 3 parks. Stayed in the cabins on this trip. Loved them. Plenty of space. Nothing fancy but nice and clean. Enjoyed the swamp, sunsets, nighttime walks with the stars. Of course alligators a plenty. This trip also rented a john boat, great experience too. In the past have kayaked and canoed and that's great fun too. Staff is very friendly. No complaints about this park. Keep in mind if you stay the night you are miles from stores so come prepared. Park store has some essentials though. Love the drive in something like 18 miles from your last turn to the road ending at the swamp. Will be back I'm sure. Thanks for another great adventure.
