Beautiful covered bridge

There are so many covered bridges in north east Georgia. This is one of the more beautiful ones! We are doing a covered bridge tour on our Harley.

From the covered bridge to the mill pond to the rocky shoals below the dam, it offers something for everyone who loves the outdoors. My wife and I hike the many trails, kayak the river upstream of the pond, and enjoy the beautifully wooded campground. The staff here is always friendly and helpful.

This historic site offers a variety of laid back activities. There is parking fees. There is camping, horse trails, walking trails, fishing, picnic shelters, and gathering rooms at this out of the way little park. The camping is rustic, small and quiet. It is so out of the way that one or two nights would be suggested for camping. The... More

Beautiful scenic covered bridge which makes for a great photo opp. I am sure it is even prettier during the fall months. Great hiking trails that were well taking care of and such a peaceful relaxing environment just to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The only thing that was disappointing was that the visitors center... More

This is a nice arean to visit and camp the only prolame is that the trails are not sign posted so you can get lossed on the trails and may need to call out the emergency people to help you out It is beautiful to sit by the river and watch people fishing and have a picnic down there

This state park has a wooden bridge, and a small waterfall. It would be interesting for a day trip and picnic, but the campgrounds were not nearly as nice as Victoria Bryant State Park. The lady at the check in was very nice, but that was the best part of the actual camping experience there.

We camped here over Labor Day weekend. The spots are large and well maintained. There are paddle boats and canoes to rent and a large area for equestrian riding. There are also a few easy hiking trails, but the best thing about this park is the bridge! It is historical, beautiful, and well maintained. The river shoals at the base... More

At 229 feet, Watson Mill Bridge is the longest covered bridge in Georgia. It has been well restored and well maintained and is open to park traffic. Included in the park are the old raceway and the powerhouse ruins. It's a pleasant park for picnicking and walking and a very interesting historical site. The park is beautiful, especially in the...

A mystery tour led us to this remote location outside of Athens Ga for a picnic, riverside trail hike, and cooling off in the river. The kids said they enjoyed rolling down the hill and wading in the river. The best part of the picnic was the view. We chose to hike the 2 1/2 trail along the river which... More
