My only complaint with this park was the lack of any net work TV signal. A basic cable connection would make this park a 10 or better. We stayed there 2 nights on our way from NC back to FL. The park was very well maintained, and there was a lot of space between the sites. All the utilities were good. I did not see how close one of those Georgia Pines was to the edge of the site until I had unhooked and realized I could not put my awning out. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Quiet and clean. Some sites more level than others but most are acceptable. Good water with good pressure. Good voltage. Not busy when we stayed in January. Would stay again. Great place to get away. Nature trails give a feel for nearby Okeefanokee. Cost reflects Friends of GA Parks discount. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A very nice small, quiet park. We had a water front site. Level sites with a lot of distance between them. We went to the Okefenokee Swamp Park for the day and it was great. The park is a little confusing to find as you can get to it off 177 from the East or West end. We will be back. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our last stop for Spring Break 2012! And I must say we saved the best for last. We loved it here. The sites were very roomy. They have two bath houses, One is new and very nice and the older one was just fine. In fact that is the one we used because it was right by us. We enjoyed riding our bikes here. There is a lot to see and do close by. We wished this park was closer to home so we could camp here again. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Senior rate of $26 less 20%, $20.80 tax included. Nice SP and it was our second visit. Verizon cell and broadband were very good, TV via batwingman was poor. 6 stations, very good reception, but 3 Ion's and 3 other PBS type, no networks (abc, cbs, nbc or fox). So we had no news or weather. The golf course is very nice and the discount if staying in the CG is nice. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Motorhome.

The price of the state parks are the biggest downfall. I enjoyed the nature trail. The new bathhouse is nice but the showers are poorly designed and the entire floor space gets wet, so its a hassle to get dressed. Sad since its a new facility. Campground is nice. Lake is pretty and area is quiet with lots of trees on sites not by the lake. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Motorhome.

Very clean park. Camp hosts and rangers were very friendly and helpful. We had a beautiful lakefront site which was very large. Very nice trails for hiking and biking. All in all a very peaceful place. We would stay here again for sure. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Motorhome.

A great Georgia State Park campground with 2 loops in one. The outer loop offers a few large pull through sites, most have a lake view, 3 sites are lakefront. The inner loop offers some large back in sites closer to the bathhouses. The inner loop can be a challenge to maneuver large RVs due to the roof of one bathhouse right next to the loop's paved road. Many campers have tried to take the roof off that bathhouse. Most sites are gravel and grass with some having a timbered border. All have water, 30 amp electric with lamp post and fire ring. Ants can be a problem at Laura Walker so be sure to spray everything that touches the ground. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice place and very clean and wide open. You select your site after you get here. The lake is beautiful and accessable also. The biggest draw back to this park is there is no TV. Even if your set shows you get 3 stations, you don't. If the park had cable TV, it would be a favorite. Town is about a 15 minute drive, and like others have said, relaxing. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice little GA campground that is a wonderful place to set back a relax. It fills up on weekends and there is not much of anything to do at the campground except relax, fish, walk or bike. The TV reception is not good and no cable so bring your DISH or some DVD's if your into TV. You are about 11 miles from Waycross which has everything and anything you would want from WallyWorld to movie houses and a Mall. If we are in the area again we would stay here. Just a note here the State has picked a few campgrounds that had swimming pools to close them this year and to bad this is one of the parks that has closed the pool so the kids will have no place to swim or play in the water during the HOT summer months. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Motorhome.

Another sterling Georgia State Park. Lakeside sites are available, with spacious level sites with tables and fire pits. There is a nice laundry room with two washers and dryers. It is excellent value for the economy minded. I would stay here again. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very beautiful, little park. The lake is very peaceful and even has some gators in it lazily swimming around. When we got there, the park was nearly full and it looks a little like "trailer city" but after almost everyone left after the weekend, it was beautiful. The hosts are very nice. The Okefenokee Swamp Park is very close and worth visiting. Waycross is just 10 minutes away (Wal-Mart, etc.) There are washers and dryers in the central restroom building. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campsite overall, pleasant and with several sites on the lake, one of which we had. Toilets, showers, laundry were clean and functional. Would have given this perhaps 8/10...except that some nitwit in the parks system decided to allow motorboats on the lake. As a result, all Saturday afternoon we heard nothing but boats and jetskis racing up and down the lake. Great fun for the few people in the boats, I'm sure, but a huge source of aggravation for the dozens of people camped close by. Really too bad that a boneheaded decision to allow motorboats on the lake effectively spoils this as a campground, at least on the weekends. We would only come back on a weekday, and would stay away from the lakefront. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first visit to any State Park. The site was gravel and semi-level. The view was fantastic. We stayed right on the water. Roof mounted satellite worked great. 30 amp on power. Wife was told on phone when making reservations that it was 50 amp, oh well. Water pressure was great. Ants were terrible, this was our first for them as well. The office sold ant spray. The dump station is located on the way out with water for flush systems. Overall, this is a very nice park. If we come back to the Waycross area, we will stay again. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Motorhome.
