Spent 3 nights. It was a level block on sand and a little grass around. Lots of trees but not a problem. Lovely neighbours. Wifi was up and down. Staff were lovely and gave us cookies on arrival. Truck noise can be heard from the road out the front but it didnt worry us. Would stay here again. We camped at Okefenokee Pastimes Camping in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Okefenokee National Park is just across the road and is a must. We walked every trail except the 4 mile one. Walked the boardwalk and went for the boat ride. Travelled to Jeky Island on the coast and walked the driftwood beach. Drove around the hertiage city and bough sweets at their candy store. Had beautiful shrimp at the village market place for lunch.

Owners making improvements. Staff extremely helpful: led me to site, gave local information. Laundry was in a storage shed and equipment was old but did the job. Across the highway from Okefenokee main entrance. We camped at Okefenokee Pastimes Camping in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Okefenokee is worth the visit. Have historical homestead deep in swamp that is representative of difficult life. Folkston is quaint town with train history and good Okefenokee restaurant with the service and food you would expect from a southern small town.

The owners are apparently working hard to make this a nicer RV park with planned future amenities. However, the sites are too close together with adjacent site's sewer hookup right next to your RV outdoor living space. Also, unfortunately, the owners allowed two abandoned walker hounds to run free in the campground. This caused issues for us and our two little dogs on several occasions. If campers are required to restrain pets then the owners should too. If you like rustic then this is the place for you. We camped at Okefenokee Pastimes Camping in a Motorhome.

Not much to do in this area other than visit the Okefenokee Parks which is the reason most people come here. These parks are well worth visiting.

Okefenokee Pastimes, owner at Okefenokee Pastimes Camping responded to this review

We are sorry for any inconvenience the 2 stray dogs may have caused you during your stay, we are working hard at gaining their trust so we can restrain them, bring them back to health and possibly re-home them, as in Charlton County the only other option is animal control which brings them to a kill shelter, and that is not an acceptable option for 2 wonderful dogs.

Under new owners and they are working very hard to update the park. It is very small and it was a little tight with our 41ft 5th wheel. Very convenient to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge...across the street!! With a little bit more in improvements this will be a nice little park! We camped at Okefenokee Pastimes Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Okefenokee Pastimes, owner at Okefenokee Pastimes Camping responded to this review

Thanks for the review and staying with us. We are aware of the tightness of the existing spaces and will be addressing that with the phase 2 expansion happening this fall, as with all old parks it was built for the trailers of the 70's and 80's. We look forward to hopefully seeing you in the future where you will be pleasantly surprised with the new sites, again thanks for choosing us for your stay, safe travels, Dale & Michelle Hazzard

We arrived at the park after a very heavy storm dropped several inches of rain over the area. The owner assured us that the sites were usable and they were. Our main reason for visiting the area was to take a boat ride into the Okefenokee Swamp and the entrance to the Refuge was directly opposite to the park entrance. We found the owners to be both friendly and helpful and would recommend the park to anyone wishing to visit the area. The sites are pretty level and the restrooms and showers are clean and modern. We camped at Okefenokee Pastimes Camping in a Motorhome.

This has been quite an experience. The campground is o.k. although situated right on a highway like street, I guess that can be very loud in the spring and fall. The owners (I only met her) were the most unfriendly campground people I have ever met. We are a couple of guys (all senior people) coming from all over the place some of us driving 12 hours to get there. Anyhow we did not all make it there by 6pm which resulted in a $10 fine (we were the only people on the campground) also we had made reservations for 8 but only six could make it, she charged us anyway for eight. After all that trouble we did not want to stay another night so she charged us another $20 as cancellation fee...I am going back to the Okefenokee in march with my family...but never to this campground even if it were free... We camped at Okefenokee Pastimes Camping in a Campground Cabin.

This is a bare bones park, but it was great. Mainly because right across the street is Okefenokee Swamp. The campground offer tours, but we were not here when the tour guides were available, which was disappointing but they need time off, too! We went to the swamp and spent the day, it was amazing. The park was perfect for what it is. You couldn't beat the price, but you should definitely go on line and read their rules, they are serious about weeding out the rule breakers, probably because it is such a small place, it is like you are camping in their backyard. So consider the rules you would post if you had 20 or 30 people camping in your yard! We camped at Okefenokee Pastimes Camping in a Motorhome.
