Obediah's Okefenok is the 1800s pioneer homestead of Obediah Barber, a legend, a swamper, and also known as the "King of the Swamp." Since 1989, this homestead has been restored and turned into a park, and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors can venture down the 1100-foot boardwalk, walk the nature trails, or just stroll through the many buildings and museums. Wildlife observation areas also allow viewing of more than 100 different animals native to the Okefenokee. Obediah's is open year-round from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. 912-287-0090
