Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge
Backcountry paddling the water trails along the Okefenokee Trail has become a hot ticket. To get a space out here you have to call no earlier than two months in advance and only 7-10 a.m. Monday-Friday. The reservation line is often busy. Only one group is allowed at each shelter. Weekend spaces fill fast, but last-minute cancellations offer potential options at peak times even a few days before your trip.
