We arrived on a Friday for the day. Tour the old mill and hiked around the lake. Great day. Took the short trail of 3 miles. Benches provided every 1/2 mile for rest. Very nice park.

We camped with a group of 9 last weekend and loved it. The campground and the bathhouse were clean. Our site was two sites close together and on the water. Plenty of places to hang a hammock and close to the shorter hiking trail.

Open year-round. South Georgia is much more comfortable to kayak in the Fall and Winter!

To make it short-no! There is a hiking trail in the park & fishing in the pond. There is a playground in the park also. If you are camping and have a vehicle, Georgia Southern University is about 25 miles away. There is... More
