Description: Surrounded by rural countryside and the Chattahoochee National Forest...
Surrounded by rural countryside and the Chattahoochee National Forest, this quiet park in northwest Georgia offers outstanding fishing on two stocked lakes. Visitors can hike along three miles of lake loop trails and relax in swings while watching for the many bluebirds that live in the park. The trailhead to the scenic 60-mile Pinhoti Trail is only a 1.6-mile hike away. Children especially enjoy the playground, feeding ducks from the lake’s boardwalk and renting pedal boats. A small campground and four cottages are nestled on tree-covered hillsides. This park was named for Rep. James H. “Sloppy” Floyd who served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 1953 until 1974.

This is a fantastic park for weekend getaways. They have two or three lakes, petal boats for rent and jon boats for rent for fishing. They have hiking trails and even one that leads to an old closed down marble mine. May not be worth a very long drive but if youre close by, absolutely worth a visit

We visited James Floyd Park for their first time campers program. The family had a great time. We hiked and canoed a little. We mostly had a blast setting up the camp and cooking over the campfire. We are from the city and found the entire experience lots of fun. The park itself is very clean and a great place... More

I stopped in while driving through the area and boy am I disappointed I didn't have a pole with me! Wow at the fish in these 2 small lakes! The water is clear and you can see them swimming all over! The park itself isn't a huge one, but the cabins look great. They have plenty of picnic shelters, paddle... More

A family outing brought us to sloppy floyd park in northwest Georgia. We drove past the turn off as the sign is a little hard to see.Once we arrived , all we could say was WOW! The lake has got to be one of the prettiest lakes in the state parks we have visited. Plenty of picnic tables and swings... More

The wife and I decided to visit Sloppy Floyd State Park to go hike as sort of a last minute "thing to do". She had never been to the park before, and I had not been in years. I simply love the scenery at this park. The lake is beautiful (with plenty of areas for fishing even though we did... More

First, this state park is only 1 1/2 hours from home so that is a great benefit. The campground is very nice, large sites with a good amount of privacy. We had site #4 and felt pretty separated from our neighbors. Several good walking trails and two nice lakes that appear to have good fishing opportunities. We camped for two... More

While not as good as it's northern sister park Cloudland Caynon, Sloppy Floyd has a lot to offer. A summer visit for the family should be considered. The staff is always friendly and ready to help in any way. Campgrounds and facilities are clean. Lot's of activities to keep you busy.

We camped here for the 4th with my sister's family. At first we had a bumpy start because of how the sites were reserved without people being present. However, once we settled into our site we had a great time despite the rain. The host even did a little fireworks show for the campers. It was perfect. The bathhouses were... More

My wife and I are trying to visit all the Ga State parks this year. Todays visit was to the Sloppy Floyd State park in Summerville, Ga. (about 15 miles north of Rome). The signs for the park were sufficient to easily find the park. We made the hike from the Ranger Station to the Marble Quarry. It was nice... More
