“Very nice small park great for a leisurely day of exploring”

James H. ''Sloppy'' Floyd Park
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Owner description: Surrounded by rural countryside and the Chattahoochee National Forest, this quiet park in northwest Georgia offers outstanding fishing on two stocked lakes. Visitors can hike along three miles of lake loop trails and relax in swings while watching for the many bluebirds that live in the park. The trailhead to the scenic 60-mile Pinhoti Trail is only a 1.6-mile hike away. Children especially enjoy the playground, feeding ducks from the lake’s boardwalk and renting pedal boats. A small campground and four cottages are nestled on tree-covered hillsides. This park was named for Rep. James H. “Sloppy” Floyd who served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 1953 until 1974.

Beautiful park at the base of the mountains. Lots of short trails in the woods. Small playground for kids, paddle boats, pretty lakes. Nice plays to walk and enjoy nature.

The most beautiful park I have ever seen in Georgia. The cabins are wonderful and new. The park is great for hiking, fishing, canoeing, paddle boating, picnicking, bike riding, etc. Take your children and have a GREAT time.

This Park for camping has a few perks. 1. campground is away from park visitors thats a plus compared to a few . A few sites are not the best but our site was one of the best. You are not in the North Ga mtns so the setting is different and its warmer there in summer months. 2. There is hiking, The fishing was ave perch, carp. 3. Summerville is close by 10 min and they have a wal Mart if you run out of food headed North out of the town. 4. There is fast food on that end too. Local resaurants we stopped at one I was not impressed. Wendys or Captian D's would have been Better. I believe there is an Ingles as well. THERE IS NO SWIMMING HERE AND NO WAY TO WATER COOL OFF. Not allowed at the Mine either so do not attemp to do it. 5. Towards Adairsvilles on Main HWY/ Rd there is a sign Rocky Mountain Rec area. Turn there follow signs. Great lake to Fish, Beautiful and there is swimming. 2 places to enter 2nd one Swimming. We went there and cooled off. We were here camping Memorial Weekend the park was QUITE....I have visited other State park and made reviews. This campground was better then Moccasin Creek as far a set up was concern and more acres, you were not on top of each other.** there is trout fishing Id say 30 to 45 min away in the National Forrest near Johns Mtn. Called Johns Creek ask Rangers etc for help on that one. Its Near Sydney Dew campground where I have gone for scout camp and fished there myself and there is a well know waterfall close by Johns Mtn that the park office should know of.
