Back in 2007 a wildfire burned thru the Okefenokee Swamp and destroyed several camping platforms. A couple of years of drought made the water levels too low to get in and repair the platforms. Finally had a couple of Tropical Depressions come thru and dump enough rain to be able to clear the trails and open them to the public again. They did a real good job rebuilding the Maul Hammock platform. From Kingfisher Landing to Maul Hammock is 12 miles.
