I took my mom and son out here for a little walk after we had lunch. It was a nice day, but being that it's winter, the trees are rather bare. I'll definitely be back to see it in the spring or summer. The boardwalk is in decent shape, and probably less than a mile, round trip. It's very quite... 更多
This was my first venture "into a swamp" so I found it interesting to be able to see the trees, see how close things are and to get a sense of the history (there are signs about timber harvesting, animal life, old fence lines). It's not a long walk - and flat all the way so it's not a challenging... 更多

Grand bay has a walking path through a marshy area. There are signs identifying the trees and palnts along the trail.

I had never heard of this place until my daughter's school had a field trip here. It was a very neat place with a little bit of wildlife and a nice viewing tower at the end of a nice little walk via boardwalk.
Wooden platform out to a tower Grand Bay. Lots of different types of plants and animals to see. Good afternoon trip for the family.
This site is well worth visiting while in the Valdosta area. Lily pads in bloom, pitcher plants, cypress trees, dragonflies, bullfrogs, and more. The view of the area from the tower at the end of the boardwalk trail is spectacular. Bugs not a problem when we visited, but we took the precaution of using mosquito repellent just in case.
