Garden Wildlife Area
Created to protect native azalea species, Callaway Gardens has grown to include the world's largest man-made, white sand beach. An indoor conservatory protects its fluttering occupants in the Cecil B. Day Butterfly Center. Azaleas thrive in the gardens and grow around memorials. Every summer the beach comes to life with the Florida State University Flying High Circus, which holds activities and shows with the lake as a backdrop. Put Callaway Gardens on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Pine Mountain trip generator.

  • The rooms are great at the lodge, it was extra because we got the breakfast package and we got to do some stuff that was included.... however we only spent two nights and if you really want to do EVERYTHING they offer, then you might have to sell a kidney or be rich already. it was mainly old rich white people here... and i am a 30 yr old white woman... the service was GREAT though.... everyone was super pleasant... we should have brought more money for tips actually... ALSO, parking was awful! the spaces were awkwardly put in and the driving isles are too small... it makes it seem like everyone is parking like an a-hole... they probably couldn't help it....
  • We came here for a wedding weekend and stayed in the cabins. It was a beautiful location and the cabins were perfect to keep everyone in our group together. We spent the weekend visiting the gardens and it was so well maintained. The events for Easter weekend was fun for the kids. The wedding took place at the Chapel, and it was such a gorgeous back drop. The food at the lodge for the reception was delicious and the service in the restaurant was spectacular!
  • Callaway Gardens is wonderful! Biking & walking/hiking trails through beautiful gardens, woodlands, & lakes. Cost $20 per adult for a day. Season passes are available as well. Best times to go are in the Spring when all the flowers are blooming or in the Fall when leaves are colorful. The Day Butterfly Center is my favorite: you can walk among several species as they float around the garden nursery. If you visit, don't forget your camera!
  • The Gardens are beautiful! There are a ton activities for all ages! We loves the birds of prey show. You can pretty much bike to all of the different areas. Only improvement would be that there more signs along the bike trail for directions (ie. How to get to the trail from the lodge and spa.)
  • We attended a day of the 2017 Nautique Masters Competition at Callaway Gardens (we did not stay overnight there). We purchased Pavilion tickets, and we're so glad we did. Our seats were shaded and cool with an excellent view of the competition. Large screens showed instant replays and competitor information. Park staff were friendly and helpful. We felt the ticket price was fair for our all-day viewing of the competition. We will definitely do this event at Callaway again!
