January 14, 2017 *** Okefenokee Pastimes will be re-opening on February 3, 2017 under it’s new ownership. It will now be known as Okefenokee Pastimes Cabins & Campground.
Currently the property is in it’s final stages of renovations before opening, the store/reception area will be painted this week and tiled, next week the computer system and other essential systems will be installed, bathrooms will be re-painted.
Updates and improvements will continue through out 2017 with the addition of a swimming pool, hot tub, a new pull through rv row with concrete pads and patio with fire pits featuring 50/30/20 amp electric service and full hook ups, addition of a meeting/game/exercise room, pet exercise area as well as a few more improvements.
Guided tours and tour packages will not be offered during the 2017 season, we will be assessing the demand for them and may bring them back for the 2018 or a later season. Let us know with your desire for a swamp tour and we can perhaps make a recommendation to you of whats available in the area in the meantime. We will still offer shuttle service and canoe/kayak rentals, they will be available through the new online booking system (should be live this week).
We look forward to providing you with a peaceful comfortable stay weather you are in one of our cabins, or if you have never tried rv’ing inquire about our onsite rental rv trailer to see if it is right for you, or if your in your own rv in one of our large rv sites or in your tent in our tenting area.
We are directly across from the entrance to the Okefenokee Swamp, and are within a short drive from the Folkston funnel where over 60 CSX trains a day pass through on their way to and from Florida along with a great viewing platform. If you you are a motorcyclist the area has some great riding, in short there is always plenty to do here, bird watching, hiking trails, star gazing and especially resting and relaxing.
Again we look forward to meeting you and making your stay a special one, Michelle & Dale Hazzard – Owners.
