Best camping site to date! Faculty was extremely professional and polite. Had several events for kids. Very spacious sites with clean bathrooms and showers. The campground was quiet and everything was easily accessible. Campsite hosts were very helpful. We went geocaching, kayaking, and hiking. Highly recommend. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful park but we got bored quickly. We have been having family reunions here occasionally over the past 30 years. Sadly, the pool was closed down a while back with no plan to re-open it. Fishing and boating is normally allowed on the lake but they closed the lake to all activities due to some cabin construction they have going on. For the life of me I could not figure out what one thing had to do with another and I was very frustrated that we were not notified of that when we booked. So we had beautiful lake front lot but zero activities. We did go across the highway one day and went to Okefenokee park. The city is not too far but we don't go camping to do "city" things. Bathrooms were older but clean. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We always have ant problems at this park so we just make sure to pack what and spray. We figured out if we spray our tires and jack stands ants don't come in :-)

At this time of year the entry kiosk is closed, so we parked in directed area and proceeded into visitor center which is really a gift shop and registration counter. We were told there were many 30amp/water sites available. We paid for two nights and then unhooked tow car and went to campground which is big rig accessible, paved roads and all sites are mostly level, open, very spacious, clean, with few pine trees for shade. Sites all have 30 amp and water with a very accessible dump station. The only downside was the office staff were confused on what is privately operated and federally operated at the Okefenokee Swamp. We finally clarified that Waycross entrance is non profit private, Folkston is Federal and Fargo on west side is state. Overall, we found this is a very quiet park with spacious sites, good utilities and 7 antenna television stations. No networks, however. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Waycross is close for groceries. Okefenokee Park that is close is private with train and boat rides. Folkston about half hour south is headquarters for Fish and Game of Okefenokee with visitor's center, film, boat ride, hikes, homestead and 3/4 mile boardwalk into Okefenokee Swamp.

Very clean and spacious sites. Restrooms and showers very clean. No cable or Wi-Fi but with the lake who needs it. No sewer but had a dump station. Only drawback was not enough pull thru sites. Would recommend this campground for peace and relaxing time. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Motorhome.

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.
