Take your time see it all. Do not miss the Horticultural center, butterfly house, chapel, Birds of Prey show. Rent a golf cart and hop off and on. Really fun.

My daughters are adults, and they and I traveled together on a girls' trip through the Carolinas and Georgia. (Trip Advisor only offers the option of indicating family as small children or teenagers.) On our return from North Carolina back to Louisiana, we spent one night in Pine Mountain at The Lodge and Spa, Callaway Gardens. A park pass was... More

We are sorry to hear that you were dismayed by not having the opportunity to visit the Gardens during your drive-by. The doors of the attractions do close at 6 p.m.; however, the beach entrance remains open until later in the evening -- we have Summer Family Adventure activities late into the evening. Many Louisiana residents love that program. We... More

LOVED IT! We had a blast at Robins Lake Beach. Got a beach package which included an hr of Aqua Island, tennis and 2 hrs of bikes. Well worth it! The kids loved seeing all the sites and nature. We will be back!
