The City of Folkston was created simply because the Savannah, Florida, and Western Railroad needed a station there and the first train passed through in 1881.  The Old Train Depot has been restored and houses the Okefenokee Chamber of Commerce and Development Authority of the City of Folkston and Charlton County. Residents and visitors alike cherish this historic landmark. Along with the train depot, there is the Folkston Funnel Train Platform bringing many visitors from all over the world to "train watch."

The campground is located close to downtown Folkston (Hwy 40 & US 1).  Activities will include a day trip to an outdoor gun range for pistol and rifle shooting, and 2 separate day visits to explore The Swamp at the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge (#1) which includes the Chesser Island Boardwalk to the 40’ Owl’s Roost Tower (#3) and a guided boat excursion into the swamp; and another excursion to Okefenokee Swamp Park in Waycross.  Other activities might include a sunset visit & ice cream at the Folkston Funnel Train Viewing Platform (#2), and an outdoor dining adventure to Captain Stan’s Smokehouse in Woodbine.  (# = Top Things to do in Folkston, according to TripAdvisor!)
