Check Last Minute Availability
This park is located on the western shore of 71,100-acre Clarks Hill Lake, one of the largest lakes in the Southeast.  With its boat ramps and accessible fishing pier, it is especially popular with anglers and boaters.  A sandy swimming beach welcomes visitors to cool off during Georgia summers.  Rental cottages are located on the lake’s edge, and the spacious campground is nestled into the forest.  Tent campers will enjoy extra privacy in the walk-in section.
 
Elijah Clark State Park is named for a frontiersman and Georgia war hero who led pioneers during the Revolutionary War.  A log cabin replica of the Clark home displays furniture, utensils and tools circa 1780 and is open weekends April through November. Visitors can also view the graves of Clark and his wife Hannah.
