  • This park covers over 1,000 acres and has a restored 229 foot long 1885 covered bridge in front of the visitor center. The park is located on the South Fork River. There is a dam adjacent to the cover...  more »
  • This is a really nice park for families. Also, they have large indoor pavillions you can rent for special functions.  more »
  • Loved this stop! A wonderful old bridge and a nice walk in the woods. Be sure to pay the minimal parking fee.  more »

  • State park built around an old covered bridge and the river it crosses. The river just down stream of the bridge is a fun watering hole with several small natural slides. Park office is neat but small and basic. It's also the only place nearby to get ice and it closes promptly at 5pm. Campground is fairly nice, better than many, especially the bathrooms which is a big deal. Camp live-in manager couple seem okay, didn't see them much.
  • One of the best day-cay spots near Athens, especially on those hot summer days. Plenty of shady picnic areas and the river provide ample opportunities to cool off while enjoying some of the prettiest scenery around--covered bridge, water fall, redneck waterslides, riverside trails, and a quint little ranger station.
  • As far as I'm concerned this is the most beautiful place in the world! Lots of trails to explore, beautiful river, canoes, paddle boats, camp grounds plus pavilion areas with electricity and large grills and a playground. The covered bridge is beautiful.
  • Beautiful wooden bridge. We just happened to find this place while traveling and we didn't have time to see it all. We will be coming here again to walk the trails along the river.
  • Everything's great out here, but there are some scumbags who let there kids leave trash all over. You'll find it in the shoals and on the trails. I carry a pack just to haul out trash I find whenever we go (usually at least once a week)
