About: 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. Kids enjoy feeding the park's farm animals, which usually include goats, sheep, chickens, pigs and donkeys.

Seventeen-Mile River and a boardwalk wind through cypress swamp where rare and endangered plants grow. The pitcher plants shy Indigo Snakes and Gopher Tortoises make their homes in this wiregrass community. Birding and nature photography are exceptional.

In 2009, the park added 13.4 miles of horse trails, as well as campsites just for equestrians. Ride-in sites are primitive, offering exceptional privacy surrounded by nature. Drive-in sites offer nearby water spigots, pit toilets, grills, fire rings and picnic tables. Stables are not provided.

Overnight accommodations include camping, cottages, and the Burnham House, an elegantly decorated 19th century cabin perfect for romantic getaways. 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.
