Welp, I had no clue this state park was in my own backyard as an native Atlantan! All things include various spots to fish (so you won't be cramped by a neighbor trying to catch the same fish), picnic tables, several hiking trails to see the big creek and climb the rocks as well as the mill ruins from the...

This park is located only a few miles from my office and is accessible during lunch hours or after work. A true paradise hidden away just outside of Atlanta. With numerous nature trails, historical buildings that include an old mill from the turn of the century, a beautiful lake, and lots of untouched nature! Easy to find and well worth... More

Of course this isn't really just. A 100 acre woods its more like 2500 acres but let me tell you it's beauty and charm are renewing! Sweetwater Creek State Park is the closest State Park to the city of Atlanta. I couldn't believe how peaceful and serene it was. The old textile ruins are magnificent! They have preserved every relic... More

We love this park and have been going for several years. It's a perfect day hike, place for kids to cool off in shallow water and dogs to get a lot of exercise. Our last visit included several snake sightings- 3 copperheads and a king snake- watch dogs and kids on the trail and near the edge of the water.

Wow, what a great place to hike and so close to Atlanta. A mere 15 minutes outside of the perimeter (I-285) of Atlanta on the west side of town. Great state park site, plenty of parking, picnic pavilions and BBQ grills to use. The trails all begin around the Visitor Center and are very well marked blazes throughout the trails.... More

If you love the outdoors & history this is a perfect day trip. You canoe the lake or fish or simply bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the beautiful landscape. There is a few different trails that you can hike or run and a walking trail that leads down to the historic mill along the river. The visitor center is... More

I love the new visitor's center. This park is simply wonderful. It's clean and peaceful. Love seeing the dogs out on the trails with their owners too. It's close to Atlanta, yet once your there, you feel like your miles away from everything. I wish they offered camping to make a weekend of it.

I have lived in Marietta now for 10 years and wish I had come to this park sooner. There are great hiking trails, canoe rentals and many places to fish and have a picnic. My wife and I hiked the red trail that is at times like rock climbing due to the recent flooding but it was easy and tough... More

This is where I use to take my son's growing up when I didn't have much money to spend on an outing. I would take them on any one of the color coded walking/hiking trails...I have done them all! So having said that I only stick to the red & blue now...lol. We've gone fishing, fed the ducks, and had... More

This is a nice little park. Plenty of kayaks, canoes, pedal boats to rent. A bait shop for fishing. Friendly staff. The park was not at all crowded on a beautiful day.
