One of southern Georgia's "best kept secrets," this park is known for agricultural history shown at Heritage Farm, with log cabins, a corn crib, tobacco barn, cane mill and other exhibits. Children enjoy feeding the park's farm animals, which usually include goats, sheep, chickens, pigs and donkeys. Overnight accommodations include camping, cottages and the Burnham House, an elegantly decorated 19th-century cabin perfect for romantic getaways. Seventeen-Mile River and a boardwalk wind through cypress swamp where rare and endangered plants grow. Pitcher plants, shy Indigo Snakes and Gopher Tortoises make their homes in this wiregrass community. Birding and nature photography are exceptional. For horse lovers, the park offers 13.4 miles of equestrian trails. There are 50 Tent, Trailer, RV campsites with water, electric, picnic table, fire pit at each campsite with a nearby comfort station offering indoor plumbing and hot showers. Stables are not provided.
