Waycross sits on the northern edge of the Okefenokee Swamp, one of Georgia’s
wonders, and is home to Laura S. Walker State Park and The Lakes Golf Course.
The city sits on the northern edge of the Okefenokee Swamp, the land of the trembling earth, one of Georgia’s natural wonders. Waycross is home to one of the most unique ecosystems on the planet. The swamp is teeming with wildlife and flora you won’t find anywhere else. Carnivorous pitcher plants, alligators and a seemingly endless variety of birds make Waycross the perfect place for nature lovers and adventure seekers.
But there is so much more to this historic town. Down-home cooking at local restaurants, comfortable accommodations, a thriving downtown business district and a music scene that continues to draw on the city’s rich musical past make Waycross a great place to visit for everyone in the family.
A few things we know you won’t want to miss include Okefenokee Swamp Park, Obediah’s Okefenok, the Okefenokee Heritage Center and Southern Forest World museums, our historic walking tour, and one of CSX’s busiest and largest computerized train yards.
Laura S. Walker State Park and The Lakes golf course are just outside of town, if you’re in for a little camping, renting a cabin or getting in a few rounds during your stay.
Welcome to Waycross. We know you’ll love it as much as we do.
