      Located within the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, this remote park offers access to the breathtaking wealth of flora and fauna of America's largest black water swamp. Reserve a place on one of the guided pontoon boat tours and enter a primeval world of moss-draped trees, ibis, storks, turtles and of course the American Alligator, an estimated 12,000 of which live within the refuge. A boardwalk trail next to the boat dock makes it easy to explore a small area of the swamp on foot.

      If you go:
      Stephen C. Foster State Park is a certified dark sky park, allowing guests to experience some of the darkest skies in the southeast. Nine cottages are available to rent, and there's a campsite for tents, trailers and RVs.
