We recently stayed at a basic cabin here and it was great. Everything worked out wonderfully. The location is perfect being right across from the eastern entrance of the Okefenokee Swamp and close to Okefenokee Adventures. The cabin was basic but certainly adequate. We brought our sleeping bags, cooler & food. The bathroom was close by and very clean. This...

Owners are excellent people, salt of the earth. Accommodating, knowledgeable and hardworking. This campground is well kept. The bath and restroom facilities are clean and comfortable. Best access to the eastern portal of the Okeefenokee NWR. Rates are fair and reasonable. WiFI was strong. Water was good. We return often. Our campground of choice when we are doing the Okeefenokee.

We just got back from a wonderful stay at Okefenookee Pastimes. We stayed in one of the deluxe cabins because, well, we got over going outside to the bathroom when we quit camping in tents. The deluxe cabin is tiny; more like staying in an RV than a full hotel room, but it was clean, well appointed, the beds were...

We stayed here in a basic cabin for two nights in September. It was mid-week and we were the only people there, which felt a bit odd but it was nice to have the place to ourselves. The cabin (#2) was a good size and had everything we needed. The price was right and the location was perfect for visiting...

I can't say enough about our Okefenokee Pastimes experience. First, location. It is direclty across the road from the eastern entrance to Okefenokee. You can't find an accomodation any closer. At check-in, Jo greeted us warmly and made us feel right at home. She took the time to explain to us everything we needed to know about our deluxe cabin...

My college friend and I (both past 65) visited the Okefenokee for the first time. We stayed at Okefenokee Pastimes in a Deluxe Cabin and took Steve's motor boat tour. The cabin was perfect, the tour was spectacular, as is the swamp. Steve and Jo are wonderful hosts. Can't recommend the experience more highly. Richard Savannah, GA

My 12-year-old son and I visited Jo and Steve at Okefenokee Pastimes over Spring Break, April 2014, and I just realized I forgot to leave them a review. If you are interested in a casual, comfortable stay while learning more about the beautiful and fascinating Okefenokee Swamp, I hope you'll consider Okefenokee Pastimes.

We stayed a night here at one of the deluxe cabins with a bathroom.

The location, right next to the East entrance to the park is great. The tour that Steve gave us was worth every penny and more. He sets off nice and early so you are in the park before anyone else, and the mist was rising from the swamp as we set off. Magical. We were lucky enough to hear the...

I staryed here several times years ago with my children and we loved it. I recently returned with a friend and was pleased to find that it's still a wonderful spot.
