Welcome to the Okefenokee Swamp. A 438,000 acre wet land located on the Florida-Georgia line and a popular tourist destination for outdoor enthusiasts. You can stay at the few four star hotels located just a few short hours away, but if you’re looking for more budget friendly options there are other places available. Well one other place...
The family owned and operated Alligator Lodge is best known for popularizing the supposed existence of the swamp beast and also equally known for having very cheap rooms. It’s located away from all modern civilization in the middle of the actual Okefenokee Swamp. Although accommodations aren’t in the best conditions, the Alligator Lodge let’s you immerse yourself in the middle of all the action allowing you to enjoy the beauty and mystery of the Okefenokee Swamp.
*The new incoming tourtist staying at the Alligator Lodge are waiting by an old creaky dock at the edge the swamp after being driven by bus for 2 hours down a single dirt road. Now they are all waiting at the dock for a boat to come to escort them to the lodge. It’s a warm sunny day and they can hear the sounds of frogs croaking and the occasional scream of bird. The swamp water is clear black not allowing you to see how deep the water is or what is underneath the surface of it*

Jordan: ^I kinda want ta go on a 'venture, but ma and pa prob'ly want me to stay 'round the Lodge 'til them new folks show up.^
*Willard has two duffle bags on each of his shoulders fill with equipment for his research mission. As he stands there waiting with everyone he looks at the swamp taking notes. He bends down looking at the water and takes out a small beaker from one of his bags and scoops up some of the water. He looks at it and starts writing down more things in his journal*
Claudette looks to Amy, "It's the swamp. The environment here is so warm, all of these algae, fungus, and bacteria thrive. The dying vegetation doesn't help either. Both of them combined creates this.. wonderful smell."
