10257 GA Highway 177
The 22-mile adventure takes you through an incredible diversity of landscapes and introduces you the the wonder that is, well…one of Georgia’s seven natural wonders–the Okefenokee Swamp. Beginning at Stephen Foster State Park, the paddle route explores both the wide-open cypress-lined big water of the swamp as well as the intimate hardwood-lined “Narrows” as the swamp begins forming what will soon become the Suwannee River. From the Narrows, the route emerges into a prairie-like landscape dotted with majestic cypress before passing through the man-made Suwannee River Sill and into the Suwannee River proper. The route’s final 14 miles from Griffis Fish Camp to Fargo take in a beautiful and winding section of one of the South’s most fabled rivers. Wildlife? You bet! Expect to see lots of alligators! Camping is at Griffis Fish Camp, an historic old-school campground established in the 1930s. Restrooms with toilets and showers are provided along with tent camping. Individual RV campsites are also available for additional fees. Catered meals are served beneath a temporary shelter within our camping area. Space is limited for this adventure so register early!
