We spent one night in Okefenokee Pastimes Cabins & Campground, a really nice smaller family run campground.  It features 12 pull through RV sites a bunch of tent camping sites, a dump station, and a small store with the nicest and cleanest bathrooms and showers I’ve seen in a campground.  It’s very much rural Georgia, but a great setting surrounded by huge pine trees with level site and full hookups.  It was very quiet after dark, but in the late afternoon and early morning you could hear a lot of hunting dogs out in the swamp doing their thing.  Pastimes Cabins, RV Park & Campground

The bonus about this campground is, it’s directly across the street from the East entrance to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge!  The Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge is a 402,000‑acre located in Southern Georgia and Northern Florida.  The refuge was established in 1937 to protect a majority of the 438,000 acre Okefenokee Swamp.  The name “Okefenokee” is a Native American word meaning “trembling earth.”

There are a ton of fun things to do and see in Okefenokee, more than 100 miles of canoeing/kayaking trails, a 1.5 mile board walk, Swamp Island Drive – a 9-mile driving, biking and walking loop, and a concession with guided boat tours, canoe/kayak and boat rental, extended tours, overnight guiding on our Wilderness Canoe Platforms, and more.  This is a place we definitely put down on our list for a longer return visit!
