If you want to see an authentic wooden bridge still in operation...visit this Watson Mill! Roll down your windows to get a good whiff of the creosote used to preserve the wood. Then park your car and get out and walk on the bridge to really appreciate it's massive size and construction. When you are ready to cool off, walk... More

Watson Mills State Park had beautiful scenery, a wooden bridge to drive through, pedal boys boats, an equestrian area and a nice trail. The pedal boats only take about a half hour to do which is enough. The people there were very nice and the walking trail was perfect and shaded.

Watson Mill State Park was very nice. Staff at visitor center very helpful. The bridge is the longest covered bridge in GA open to drive over. Bridge is in great shape, park is very noice.

Campsites are spacious and separate(not too far) from the rest of the park. So, it's very quiet. Sites have fire rings & pick nick tables. They are not full hookup! The hike to the old hydroelectric plant for the old mill is pretty cool. They have canoes for the lake and paddle boats you can paddle down the old mill... More

Nice park with covered bridge, waterfall, and swimming. The campground was clean with most sites being pull in. There are only about 30 sites available. I was able to maneuver a 27 foot TT just fine around the park. Better signs for the camping area could be used. All hookups were working. A day in the water and sliding rock... More

My friend and I enjoyed the falls coming under the covered bridge and all the shoals with fast-running water noisily running over and through. Then we walked the beautiful two mile loop, enjoying the winter woods full of American beech, oaks, maples, dogwoods, pines etc. Some green-and-gold were blooming.

The most beautiful day and setting for our dear friends wedding. The weather was a perfect fall day and the park was filled with the most amazing colors. We all had such a wonderful time being a part of such a special occasion. The ceremony was on the lawn next to the shoals and covered bridge...quite lovely. The reception was... More
