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

Driving to Atlanta from the Outer Banks, NC, we stopped at Fort Yargo State Park to camp for a night. Fort Yargo State Park features a 1792 log fort built by settlers for protection against Creek and Cherokee Indians. The park has great hiking trails, a great campground, a 260-acre lake with a swimming beach, fishing and boat ramps and... More

We stopped by this park for a few hours on Labor Day. We were shocked at the size of this park! There is so much to do-boat rentals, putt-putt, hiking and biking trails, fishing, and more! We stopped and explored the old fort. It was built in 1792 to protect the settlers from Indians and has been restored on the... More

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 were looking for a place to take the kids to have some fun and cool off while visiting the family in GA. What a great spot! We were only able to take advantage of the beach and one of the playgrounds but this park has a ton to offer people of all ages. The entry price of $5 per... More
