Blue Trail (Okefenokee Swamp to East Fork Suwannee River)

The Okefenokee Wilderness Water Trail system is available for both day-use and overnight (permit required) use. The mobile app, Discover Nature Wilderness, is designed to help boaters with background information, an interactive map to aid in navigation, and points of interest - and the app works w/o cell phone coverage The overnight campsites allow for visitors to camp in the heart of the Okefenokee and experience dark sky views, fantastic landscape/scenery, and an unparalleled Wilderness experience. The permit system is on Recreation.gov, although guests are still required to call the refuge to secure a permit. Boat tours and rentals are available at both the Suwannee Canal Recreation Area and Stephen C. Foster State Park. Boats with motors of 10HP or less are permitted on day-use waterways.
