Enjoyed the entire Park. Beautiful setting and views. Lot of area History around as well! Nice and clean, Park Staff great and nice Lodge to stay in with all ground floor rooms. Some Cabins available also. Park was close to the Fort Gaines Frontier Village in town where the BBQ Festival was so made it nice going and coming.

We reserved one of the lodge suites. It was very spacious and the location was nice... back of the lodge facing the trees and... More

The lodging itself needs a lot of work. I went to George T. Bagby to play some golf for a weekend and was greatly impressed. This state park has a fantastic course! Best in the area by far!

Not very much beach space. They dumped sand on a grassy area along the water and made it into a poor quality beach. This is a great area for family though. There is a playground right there near the "beach"

Bagby State Park is set in a beautiful location on Lake Walter George. The park's amenities include a beach/swimming area, picnic tabels, playground, hiking, marina, lodge and cottage rentals. We enjoyed a bike ride and the kids loved playing in the sand and swimming in the pool. We were happy to find that the pool was open so late in... More

When I started to plan our August 2013 family reunion, George T Bagby State Park was the best choice. With two types of lodging available with lodge (hotel) rooms or cottages (cabin rentals), this location was great for our family. Our family stayed in Cabin #4 for about $150. This cabin featured a beautiful, equipped kitchen, screened in porch with... More

We took a weekend getaway to this State Park in July. We stayed at the lodge. The rooms were very homey and clean. We had about 11 people in our group and rented 3 rooms at the lodge. The lodge was completely booked- there was some kind of family reunion going on but it was still peaceful and quiet. The... More

Just checked out today from a 2 night stay in the group cottage that sleeps 10. The cottage is NOT on the water. It has large amounts of mold growing on the ceiling; right up next to where you sleep in the bunkbeds. It rained last night and this morning you could see in the handicapped bathroom where the water... More

It takes about 20 min. to get to downtown Eufaula, Alabama from this state park. The cabins are 2 BDR with only 1 Bath, & has a few steps. The apts. are motel style (on one floor) (no steps), and they are old, but clean. Sidewalk at the apts. takes you to the clubhouse, which includes conference rooms & a... More

Our stay was excellent, the staff and Shawn B. were the best! We've started a new family tradition. The rooms were clean, and cold and the views of lake were breath taking!! Can't wait to go back!!
