What a great spot. Quite, well maintained and accessible to metro Atlanta. This is a great state park.. Also has a variety on activities, we are here camping and mountain biking, but a day trip would be fun too.

We visit this park quite often, sometimes just to ride through. This is a nice quiet park, a great place to get back to nature, whether walking trails, sitting by the lake, or just riding around. I have been to the beach, had picnics, been to the playgrounds, and it is a great place to visit. State Park fee is... More

The trails are primarily noted for mountain biking (rentals available at the park office) there are also about 9 miles of multi use trails. I chose the Lake loop trail. It is primarily a level trail with... More

Its a great place to visit, with a lake and lots of forest and green space. A good family outing for a Bbq or over night camping.

We made a quick trip between Christmas and New Years in 2013. We found the park to be quiet, relaxing and overall a good place to stay. We felt the check-in and check-out process was easy and liked the small camp store they had. The state park system offers a Geocaching Tour which is a free program to participate in... More

All sites are neat and clean. New rest room facilities in both campground areas. Rangers are very helpful, and try and make sure your stay is very pleasant.

This park is great place for family! We love the beach in the summer and my husband thinks the disc golf course is the best around! The hiking and bike trails are great for beginners or more advanced biker/hikers.
