“One of Georgia's Best Kept Secrets!”

One of southern Georgia’s “best kept secrets,” this park is known for agricultural history shown at Heritage Farm, with log cabins, a corn crib, tobacco barn, cane mill and other exhibits. Children enjoy feeding the park's farm animals, which usually include goats, sheep, chickens, pigs and donkeys.  Overnight accommodations include camping, cottages and the Burnham House, an elegantly decorated 19th-century cabin perfect for romantic getaways. Seventeen-Mile River and a boardwalk wind through cypress swamp where rare and endangered plants grow. Pitcher plants, shy Indigo Snakes and Gopher Tortoises make their homes in this wiregrass community. Birding and nature photography are exceptional. For horse lovers, the park offers 13.4 miles of equestrian trails. Ride-in campsites are primitive, offering exceptional privacy surrounded by nature. Drive-in campsites offer nearby water spigots, pit toilets, grills, fire rings and picnic tables. Stables are not provided. The park was donated to the state by a group of Coffee County citizens in 1970 and is named after General John Coffee, a planter, U.S. Congressman and military leader.

We came here for the first time in November of 2014 not really knowing what to expect. All other review websites said that there is a whole lot of nothing in the area, and a lot of companies use this park as a retreat for "team working" workshops.

We were really surprised and happy. There is actually a lot to do with the family. There is a petting farm with antique buildings on site. A ton of hiking trails and a giant lake.

The cabins are great and offer everything you need except a phone which is nice. There is plenty to do in the area outside of the park as well so there is no issues filling your days.

We are actually planning our second trip back.

Great family place. Camped here from the earliest days. All my five kids grew up campers here and loved it. Still a quiet get away. Camping and cottages. We have tried all of them and liked them.
