  • Overall a beautiful well kept park. We were a little disappointed as signs were not posted at the start of trail stating the trail was closed for construction 4 miles in. We did not get to see 'the bend.' It is posyed on the website though. (We missed that.) The river trail does not stay along the river but will wind a mile away then turn back. That was a little disappointing as well. There were quite a lot of ticks this time of year. So be prepared when hiking the trails. It's a dog friendly park with plenty of parking and picnic areas.
  • Nice, new park! Love the campground--we will be back to do the back country park! My only knack was the fact that they wouldn't rent a kayak to me due to the scattered thunderstorm chance that day. Had to go to a different competitor to rent my kayak. Wayyy off the beaten path so be prepared and have all of your gear and plenty of gas.
  • Remote, quite & relaxing atmosphere. Great camp hosts. Nicely manicured campsites. Spacious campsites. Although the campground is in a forest setting, a few more trees between campsites would have been nice. Good to see more trees have been planted. Clean bathrooms. A nice, nearby escape from Atlanta!
  • I will preface this review by saying I'm biased, because I've been volunteering at the park since before it opened to the public. But there are nearly 14 miles of hiking trail, ranging from beautiful easy, flat riverside walking to aggressive up-and-down trails that will challenge the ultra-runners. Campgrounds are large and spacious, riverside views are great, and there are 3+ miles of mountain bike trail, with 20 more miles on the way. Being so far out in the country, the night sky views from the Flat Rock Trail are quite clear. The park naturalist is a hoot!
  • My family and I love hiking and camping here. They have car camping with showers and playgrounds as well as platform camping next to the river. You're likely to see all sorts of wildlife including turkey, armadillos, deer, snakes, hawks, and owls to name a few. Be sure to pack plenty food and water as this park is quite rural. I would rate the trails as easy for just about anyone. You can hike from 1 mile to over 10, you choose.
