For this trip, we stayed in the cabins at Stephen C Foster State Park over on the Fargo side of the Okeefenokee, but took a drive through Laura Walker to see if we'd like to stay another time. The cabin drive is restricted (which I like), but the rest of the park was open-all facilities looked clean & like they were kept up well. Like that it appears from pictures that the kids can fish right from behind the cabin. We are looking forward to coming on a future visit.

Wanted to see this inland park area after spending a day in the swamp. The main activities here are boating, fishing, and golfing. There is also a campground, a handful of cabins, picnicking, swimming, biking, hiking on a couple trails around the lake shore and the group camping area, and wildlife viewing, as well as a small gift shop/museum. We didn't see any wildlife and practically had the place to ourselves on a frigid winter morning. As I write this later on National Women's Day and see that MCDonalds turned the M upside down to make a W, I think it's silly and just looks like a gaint set of breasts. Hey, I'm a guy. Ladies, before you ask this review to be pulled, as I said earlier it's just a silly stunt. If they really want to honor women, put one in Ray Kroc's seat as CEO. What has all this got to do with the park? It is one of the very few in the nation named for a woman, a teacher and naturalist. She must have made quite an impression in Georgia, as even the late, great Marjory Stoneman Douglas just to the south in Florida, author and environmental activist known as the Grand Dame of the Everglades, has not been honored with a state park. Maybe over the next few years there will be more state parks named for women, as there are certainly many deserving women out there. To quote Gloria Steinham, GInger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but also backwards and in high heels.

The people working here are exceptionally hard working and the results of their efforts make Laura S. Walker our favorite State Park in Georgia as well as about 14 other States.

Amazing dedication to their park puts this simple campground the top of our places to visit. Not a complicated place but central bathhouses with laundry facilities are great for the needy traveller.

Lovely spot on the shore of a neat little lake (almost pond). The small size doesn't discourage the odd hot rodding boater that wants to tear up the water and agitate the local birdlife.

No wifi which is both good and bad.

Rental kayaks and paddle boats make for some fun times. Playgrounds for the kiddies and puppies are also on site.

Nice little reception office / campground store with support goodies as needed. Firewood is pretty cheap and this stuff actually burns in a fire (which was a pleasant surprise).

There may be Ranger presentations but we didn't information on those.

There's a great bush trail across the road and an amazing golf course just up the road a bit. A bit further along this road is the world famous Okefenokee Swamp with its intriguing tourist site.....but that's another story.
