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

Cant believe I've lived in Athens 10 years and didnt know about this park...a 25 minute drive and you're in a park with a (a) remarkable covered bridge (2) great picnicking, but MOST importantly--(3) AMAZING shoals on the river you can walk on, splash in AND (4) a 2.5 mile dog-friendly (leashed of course) trail, about half of which is...

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

The landscape in the park is gorgeous. I especially enjoyed the covered bridge. My husband and I found a second bridge in the park on a dirt road. That was a neat find. We were only here for a short time but enjoyed every minute.

We visited the first weekend in November. Our group consisted of 11 women and girls and 11 horses. We rented Log Cabin 1, a tent site and 12 Horse Stalls. The log cabin exceeded my expectations. The cabin was very clean and tidy (no spider webs) and the beds had actual indoor mattresses, just bring a sleeping bag or bedroll... More

Watson Mill Bridge Stae Park is a beautiful landscape of old Georgia. Tucked away in Comer about 30 miles from Athens it is a charming park with beautiful flat hiking trails, a georgious waterfall and a fabulous authentic covered bridge. This bridge is the longest covered bridge left standing in Ga. And one of only 20 still around. The workmanship... More

We took our boys (ages 11, 9 and 4) camping in mid-October. We stayed in the log cabin bunkhouse (#3) and really enjoyed it. There was a futon that would change into a full-size bed as well as a couch with a twin bunk over it. There were also 2 full-size beds in the loft. There was a window unit... More

This was our third visit to Watson's Mill State Park. We go solely to spend a couple of hours splashing in the river. In the center of river, you can slide down a slick patch of rock, probably about 30 feet long, into some shallow pools. That was perfect for my boys (ages 7 and 9) this year. On the... More
