Are you looking to buy a home in southern Georgia that offers great recreational options? If so, then take a look at what Folkston has to offer. 

Folkston, is of course home to the famous Okefenokee Swamp.  Okefenokee Adventures partners with the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge to provide a whole host of activities in the refuge.  You can take a 90-minute guided boat tour and marvel at the wildlife, like alligators, ibis, egrets, great blue herons, little blues, green herons and more.  You can also take a sunset tour, or just go out on your own in a canoe or kayak.

Folkston itself is a great community, as the county seat of Charlton.  It began as a train depot in the early 1900’s, but has grown to a city of 4,000 residents today who retain their historic roots.  The original train depot has been restored and remains a popular attraction for train lovers.

An outstanding school system under the direction of Charlton County School District takes care of the students living in Folkston with several elementary schools and one high school.
