We are the world’s window to the Okefenokee Swamp.
Our mission is to promote ecological tourism and education by providing a convenient point of entry into the Okefenokee--an authentic opportunity for the public to develop an appreciation for the wildlife, culture, and natural beauty of the “Land of the Trembling Earth.”

Visiting the Okefenokee Swamp Park instantly transports you into a prehistoric environment, populated by living dinosaurs – our alligators, as well as unique species of carnivorous plants, rare birds and the opportunity to learn more about the ancient Okefenokee cultures.

Allie, one of our alligators in captivity here at the Okefenokee Swamp Park, has built a nest and laid eggs in it!

From this remote location, we bring you online streaming for the first time ever of a gator nest and upcoming hatching. In general, American alligators do not reproduce in captivity and typically build their nests in remote swamp ponds. Allie has a different life plan. The hatching should be very exciting, especially considering that in the Okefenokee the hatch of a gator egg nest is naturally a dinner celebration for all sorts of swamp critters and a struggle for survival for the next generation of gators!

Located in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, the Okefenokee Swamp Park is a convenient point of entry and a magnificent show-window for the “Land of the Trembling Earth.” The park’s lily-decked water trails, with their miraculously reflective waters mirroring the overhanging beauty, lead to all points in this vast wilderness of islands, lakes, jungles, forest and prairies. Boat tours on original Indian waterways, wilderness walkways, Pioneer Island and native animals in their own habitat, all combine to weave a spell of pioneer American life.

Headwaters of the Suwannee and St. Mary’s Rivers, Okefenokee is a National Wildlife Refuge which covers nearly a half million acres.
