Great walk around the small lake
Aug 2021 • Solo
Great place for an easy walk around the lake with your fur baby. Would love to come back and stay on one of the cabins. It's easy to find and well kept.

Really nice state park
Jun 2021 • Couples
Stayed here in one of the cabins. I was surprised how nice they were, and how nice the park was. As we walked back from our friends' campsite, I noticed how quiet the park was, something you rarely get at a state park. We would definitely stay here again. Well done, GA!

Beautiful park with walkpath all the way around the lake, and a side spur to the falls. Peaceful there, with no motorized boats, although there are peddle boats and other things to rent.

Boating? maybe, maybe not
Jun 2021
We chose this park for our anniversary get-away because of the boat rentals. Upon arriving we wanted to reserve one, but had to wait for the person in charge of the boats to arrive, so went for a short walk. By the time we got our ticket for the boats, a very large group was ahead of us and took all the available ones for that hour, so we decided to take a hike to the falls and do boats when we get back. To our great disappointment, everything was shut down for the day even though it was nowhere near closing time, and we were told he would not be back the next day either! Evidently they just close whenever the boat man feels like it, and theres no telling ahead of time! The redeeming factor for the day was the beautiful falls at the one end of the lake.

Great park in the N. Ga mountains
Jun 2021 • Friends
One of the best State Parks I have visited. Lots to do for families - boat rentals, paddle boards, a nice safe sandy beach for kids, miniature golf. Cabins, hiking trails and a surprisingly impressive waterfall at the bottom of the reservoir. Well maintained and a nice gift shop.

Great scenery and lovely walk. The paddle boats are super fun and the kids like to swim there. On the flip side, the water is super cold year round and sometimes I worry it is dirty.

I was disappointed in the park
May 2021 • Family
The park has paddle boats and trails to hike. However, the campsites ate too small. This is to get more campers in I'm sure. I was disappointed. You also have to make reservations to camp months in advance.

Serenity in the Blue Ridge

One of our favorite places to walk and enjoy God’s handiwork in nature. Easy walking path around Lake Trahlyta, great photo opportunities in spring, summer and fall. Highly recommend.

A great morning walk (..."hike?") around Lake Trahyta
May 2021
We were not camping at Vogel overnight. But our morning visit to trek the 1 mile path around beautiful Lake Trahyta, and the short off-shoot to the Falls, met our expectations beautifully. Taking in the beauty was just what we wanted.

Vogel State Park was largely developed in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, and the Park has a very well furnished museum honoring the CCC. The exhibits really satisfied my interest in history, and the CCC period in particular. The Vogel staff person that showed us around the museum was a highlight of our vacation- she was so friendly, well informed, and enthusiastic.

Friendly... all the Vogel staff we met were exceptionally friendly. The Vogel Visitor Center was a showcase of Georgia hospitality. They really wanted us to feel welcome in this park.
