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

This was a very pretty place to visit and the view was serene and beautiful. I put my beach chair in a shallow area and read a book the whole day - bliss!

The sites are really big and most of them are pull through with plenty of room for our 31'. Plenty of shade and sites were clean. The bath house had issues with millipeads, but that's part of camping. But even so, they were everywhere in the shower and stalls. The sites don't have a grill, but do have a fire... More

Did not get to explore very much only staying one night, but it is a very nice place to camp. The bridge area is neat where kids can slide down smooth slate rocks in the water. Some of the camp sites seemed a bit cramped or not as private as one would like, but the one we stayed at was... More
