Good news – the Okefenokee is open for business and we have room on our Okefenokee Exploration trip coming up November 4-6. Refreshing fall rains have raised water levels as well as extinguished nearby fires, and the cooler temperatures make it the perfect time to paddle the Suwanee River in this majestic area. So join the Georgia Conservancy, REI and Okefenokee Adventures for a fun-filled weekend at Stephen C. Foster State Park in the Okefenokee. Led by acclaimed naturalist Cathy Sakas and Georgia Conservancy staff, our trip to the Okefenokee is an exciting and educational experience for first time paddlers, families with children, and seasoned adventure seekers.
A Saturday paddle in the Okefenokee Swamp and lunch at Billy's Island, a shorter Sunday paddle and lunch at Stephen C. Foster State Park, family-friendly activities designed for parents and children, and much more!
Costs: $125 per person for tent camping, $250 per person (double occupancy) for a cottage room, $400 per person single occupancy for a cottage room, $800 for a family of four (sharing room - 2 beds).
