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!!

We were checking out the park to prepare for a later visit. We checked out the cabins, the docks and inquired about alligators. Were told not to worry -- they stay away from noisy places and people. We enjoyed everything we saw, including the park headquarters building.

I stayed here while visiting Providence Canyon State Park. I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful lodge, situated next to the lake. The well-marked paths through the woods were inviting, and the pine needles made for a soft, quiet, and fragrant walk. I saw 2 bald eagles along the waterfront near sunset, on my 1st morning there, and again, after... More

Located on old Sandy Creek (Georgia Side of Chattahoochee River) in Lake Eufaula. This waterway is navigatable from at least Columbus Ga to Appalachicola FL - Gulf of Mexico. I taught my daughters to water ski in Sandy Creek before the Park was built. The Park is very nice and not far from the Marina in Lakepoint, AL. Rent a... More
