I have been to Fort Yargo on a few occasions and I can say that the sections that I was located was very quiet and very peaceful. I love the water view and just enjoyed the quiet evening.

We had never been to Fort Yargo - and we are so happy we "discovered" this great state park. It is so much fun. We visited on a sunny but warm Fall Saturday - with lots of college football on TV - so the park was not crowded but it was a lot of fun. We opted to flay Frisbee... More

Even though we live in Winder, this is our favorite place to camp. We have a fifth wheel and we have never found a site that was not good to set up on, stay on or enjoy. The camp hosts are always friendly and helpful. The bath houses are always clean. There are many activities to choose from while in... More

Barrow County has Fort Yargo State Park - a wonderful place to hike, bike, relax, kayak and much more - plus you can get a free park pass by going to any PINES library with your library card & check out the pass for free.

Check out the log stockade from late 1700's. The staff is very friendly and will give you a well presented history of the place. Beach is really nice, as is much of the picnic areas. Campgrounds looked to be a little overgrown and overused.

This park is located right in Winder GA. However, once in the park, you'd think you were miles away from any towns. My dogs and I like to walk the trails along the lake enjoying the scenery. There's great picnic grounds, more than one kids' playground, putt putt golf, rental boats, biking and hiking trails (no steep hills) and a... More
