Our family lives near Okefenokee Swamp Park. We never tire of visiting the swamp because of the natural beauty of this mysterious wonder. The kids love to hear the stories of the "Land of The Trembling Earth". They love the boat rides, the train trips and of course the alligators!

It is worth a trip if you are in the area or live close enough to visit. It's a great destination if you are looking for an outdoor adventure or daytrip. Pack a picnic and enjoy learining about south Georgia and the Okefenokee Swamp Park.
