Stephen C. Foster State Park
You are bound to see plenty of gators, exotic birds and plants, and turtles on this remote 80 acre island park that was named after songwriter Stephen Foster and is a primary entrance to the famed Okefenokee Swamp. Rangers conduct boat tours replete with swamp legends and lore and amenities on site include RV sites and cottages, an interpretive center, 25 miles of day use waterways, a trembling earth nature trail, and three picnic shelters.
If you're a nature lover, this is for you! On one trip into the swamp on a rented jon-boat we counted over 24 gators (after that we stopped counting)that we able to entice close to our boat (not by feeding-just splashing the water a bit --feeding is an irresponsible no-no.
On one of our hikes we came upon a five foot timber rattler stretched across the path sunning himself--not for the faint-hearted!
Lots of beautiful big spiders, foxes, armadillos and raccoons are everday fare.
We stayed in clean two-bedroom two bathroom cabins that were less than $ 60.00 per day in September.
Quite a few miles from a town, and cell phones don't work, but that's a plus as well as a minus.
