Nice Park

It was a pretty nice park. It was fairly big. They did have some spots marked off because they were cleaning up around the area a bit. Not a bad experience.

Off the beaten path, about 1.5 hours from Savannah. There is a lot to explore by kayak or paddle board in the large lake/reservoir. The park rangers were very laid back...and by that I mean that we paid for the kayak and then figured everything else out on our own. Bring bug spray and be on the look out for... More

This is such a LOVELY place!! The campsites are so peaceful backed up to the lake with all those grand cypress trees along the water's edge. There are kayaks available for rent or you can bring your own canoes or kayaks. The sites are clean with concrete slabs for the front of your campers, and camp grills if you want... More

Camped for 4 days in a large travel trailer at the campground. The mosquitoes were not bad but we did keep a citronella candle burning just in case. Most of the rv sites are located directly on the water. Great park with a lot for the kids to do from kayaks, canoe, fishing, geocaching, bike riding, to playing ball in... More

This Georgia state park is very popular. It has several hiking trails, a large stocked pond, cabins, picnic areas and picnic shelters. Kayaking with Mill Pond Kayak is a favorite activity here. During full moon nights, the park will sponsor a moonlight paddle. Great fun.

I've been here a few times over the past decade. I live in Statesboro which is a short drive away. It's a nice place to go if you want to canoe or kayak the pond, however, for fishing I think you best stick to the Ogeechee river. Each time I've been here in the hopes of catching a fish, those...

The cypress pond is a beautiful place for paddling for folks of all ages. The water is calm and the water trails are well-marked. Along the way, you can paddle through a rookery and also spot the osprey who make this place their home. I have also camped at this park. The sites are well-shaded and very clean with great... More

The landscape of the lake with trees is amazing and that made our kayak ride much more fun to avoid the trees! We stayed overnight at the primitive campsite #4, it's well indicated and the trail to reach the campsite is short and easy. We appreciated a lot to have a real fire pit! We had our own kayaks but...

I grew up about 6 miles from here. It is in a quite, peaceful location. Most of the sites are on a big lake with cypress trees growing in the lake. Easy online reservations. We have not camped here in 4 years. Before you could call on Monday and select site. That has changed. Now you pick your site on... More

We were camped 5 days at Gordonia-Altamaha State Park, just a wee bit south of here, as we awaited reservations for a coastal GA. park to come due. Not much going on at the small Reidsville, GA park, so we drove here to check it out. WoW ! Extremely glad that the kayaks were on the roof. This was a... More
