Sharing an Okefenokee Post from Magellan’s Travels

Kayak Okefenokee Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, Georgia

This group of ladies “came up out of the swamp” while my daughter and I were at Stephen C Foster in the Okefenokee. We chatted only a bit, so it was nice to see their travel journal and photos posted. – William 

Magellan's Travels

I spent 6 days in the Okefenokee Swamp in early March.  Three nights, I stayed in the pioneer group campsite at Stephen Foster State Park with a large group of ladies and the final 2 nights were spent kayak camping with a group of 6.

While camping, I joined in on various kayaking trips.  Kayaks rent for $20 for half a day (4 hours) and that’s enough time to easily just paddle around in Billy’s Lake, go to Billy’s Island, or paddle to Mixon’s Hammock.  There are signs pointing the way at any intersection, though I recommend the National Geographic map of the Okefenokee for anyone paddling into the swamp.

To get kayak camping reservations, go to the website and check to see what the current procedure is.  It varies throughout the year as water levels change, limiting access to some areas, and there are always budget restrictions causing havoc…

My love of the outdoors quickly turned into a love for the Creator and His works. I'm currently an animal shelter director and live in Athens, Georgia with my wife and two teenage daughters. My website displays "Creation Speaks", a teaching ministry that glorifies our Creator and teaches the truth of creation, "Nature Notes", a wildlife and birding photo blog documenting the beauty and design of God’s creation, and "Waltonpets Furtography Blog", my animal shelter dog rescue photography blog. -- "What a wildly wonderful world, God! You made it all, with Wisdom at Your side, made earth overflow with your wonderful creations." Psalms 104, The Message.
