Location + Surroundings
The property is situated on 14 acres of private land full of thick pine trees in Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge near the St. Mary’s River in Folkston, Georgia. Each accommodation is conveniently close to the community campground store, which also boasts a picnic area and recreation room open to guests throughout their stay. The wildlife refuge is one of southern Georgia’s most beautiful gems, with 402,000 acres of swamp lands full of hiking trails and wilderness canoe paths through the calm waters. St. Mary’s River, which also flows through the area, is a 126 mile-long body of water that courses along the Florida-Georgia border, emptying out at the Cumberland Island National Seashore on the Atlantic Coast. The property is just one hour north of Jacksonville, Florida as well. Read More

Guests of the campground will find plenty to do in Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, with its scenic swamp lands and abundant animal populations located just outside of the accommodation gate. The black water swamp is an excellent location fishing or canoeing while trying to spot the various species inhabiting the area, or guests can head to the historic Chesser Island Homestead for a glimpse of life as it was for the region’s earliest settlers. Glampers can also go paddling and fishing on the St. Mary’s River, or head east to Cumberland Island and the surrounding beaches for a day on the ocean. In Jacksonville, guests can enjoy an excellent meal in town or spend a few hours in the Jacksonville Zoo or at the Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary. The city is also home to a number of museums, as well as bars and clubs for glampers seeking a night out.
