My sister and I visited this lovely State Park yesterday (I wanted to pick up some walking stick medallions while visiting her). We found it to be a beautiful place! Awesome overlooks, nice hiking trails, a cute little lake and a nice little park store! They also have pioneer camping, regular tent camping and RV camping. There were also cabins that look like they are in the process of being renovated! All the facilities were neat and clean; all in all a very well cared for park!! We will definitely be returning in the future for picnics and walks!

I've been visiting this park for 25 years. It's a little gem no matter the season. In the summer there is the lovely little lake and beach and putt putt golf (and temperatures often 10 degrees cooler than in Atlanta). The lake is also a favorite fishing hole. In the fall, the colors of the trees will have you enthralled. Tent camping or renting a cabin are great ways to experience the park. The many hiking and biking trails provide adventures for all. For a short walk, Big Rock Nature trail and it's series of small but lovely waterfalls, is a delight. In the spring, this trail is lined with mountain laurel and rhododendron. The trail to the mysterious wall leads to a fabulous sweeping overlook of the entire valley. If you are checking out the cabins, make sure you get one that has been recently renovated.

A lovely peaceful park in the mountains of northwestern Georgia. We went as a family on our vacation this summer and really enjoyed it. They have something for everyone. The kids, moms, and dads enjoyed the clean, sandy beach on the lake. The older ones (grandparents) enjoyed watching them and playing mini golf. Some of the more adventurous ones went for a hike and enjoyed the view from the top.

Wow! How can the scenery in the same park change so frequently? The view, the terrain, the grade, the bears! Well marked with frequent blazes. We were exhausted and thrilled. Best trail I've ever hiked!

We visited this on Memorial Day weekend. It was a day trip. We did three hikes. The lake is nice and the hike to CCC tower is a good one. It was a pleasant outdoor trip.
