The wonderland of the Okefenokee is a significant part of America's heritage, a beautifully preserved segment of what was here when America began. Located in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, the Okefenokee Swamp Park is a convenient point of entry and a magnificent show-window for this natural wonderland. Reflective waters mirroring the overhanging beauty lead to all points in this vast wilderness of islands, lakes, jungles, forest and prairies. Boat tours on original Indian waterways, wilderness walkways, Pioneer Island and native animals in their own habitat, all combine to weave a spell of pioneer American life. Points of Interest include an "Eye on Nature Wildlife Show," low-water boardwalk, 90-foot Observation Tower, Nature Center with bee hive observatory, wildlife observation areas, Walt Kelly Exhibit, and much more.

For December, enjoy holiday fun for the whole family. Check our website, www.okeswamp.com for hours and schedules of the Swamp Light Show.
