If you like the mountains in Georgia, this is a good one. Easy access with beautiful overlook views, trails, camping, and cabin rental. There is a lake with an easy trail around it. Dogs on a leash are permitted eveyywhere except the small beach.

As much as I enjoy the park and it's hiking, I have to write this review as a cautionary for novice bikers. My wife and I used the 301 bike trail and it was rough to say the least. If you enjoy choppy technical down...More
