We have visited many places around the country, and this one always comes up when asked our favorites. The camping experience was interesting because we were afraid of the creatures at night, but we're fascinated by them during the day. The highlight was renting a motor boat to tour the swamp. It was truly a different world around each corner. The motor boat allowed us to explore deep into the swamp... much further than we could have paddled. This place is for adventurers, not the faint of heart. I'm not a fan of bugs, so the shower situation was challenging. My boys encountered two poisonous snakes near the campground, but the rangers helped them find a detour. We kept our dogs on a short leash. This vacation photo book is easily one of our most beautiful. We visited in the spring.
If you like nature you will love this park. Pull through sites are anything but. Very tight fit for a 5th wheel.. Even trying to back into the pull through's proved difficult. Low hanging tree's were also a concern and blocked access to two of the 50 AMP sites. Dirt & grass sites could pose a problem during rainy visits. A little pricey for no sewer hookups, out of the way location, and lack of amenities. But then, in a weard sort of way, those qualities add to the appeal of the place. Kudos to the staff, the showers/restrooms were very clean.
Spent two nights. The grounds are very clean and well taken care of. Rented a boat and did a swamp tour. Lots of wildlife to be seen including very large alligators. Partial hookups. No T-Mobile cell service
We spent three nights there. The swamp is a place I have always wanted to see and was not disappointed. Nice campsites, friendly people. Had to drive around an 8 ft alligator one night.
Cute park in Fargo, GA. Has fishing and boat rentals or you can launch your own with a 10 horse power max engine. We took the boat tour and then rented a 14 ft. Skiff for 4 hours the next day. Campsites offer power/ electric/ water/ cable. But don't expect wifi or cell signal. Make sure you bring everything you need. The camp site has basics but don't think you ate going to run to Walmart. Bathhouses are old and need some work. Staff was so friendly!! Will definitely be back! As with all GA state parks, if you stay mate than 3 nights, join the Friends of Georgia State Parks, or will pay for 3 nights, which covers the cost.
Nice campground but can't imagine what the bugs would be like in the summer, mosquitos were bad enough in early April. Beautiful area but really is the middle of nowhere. We kayaked twice with lots to see. Campground isn't the best kept one we've been to but good enough.
This is the real deal. Alligators, deer etc all around. Lots of water, it had been raining a lot before we arrived and the sites were very wet, very wet. Facilities are old but very well maintained and clean. This CG is in a swamp. Loved it.
