Join us in celebrating the ways we play in—and depend on—water. From guided paddle trips to stream ecology classes, we’ll get you outside enjoying Georgia’s lakes, rivers and marshes. Throughout 2017, look for events tagged with a water drop. View a list of our water-logged events.


Paddling GopherNew or experienced, there is something for everyone who wants to explore Georgia's waterways. Stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, aquacycles and more are available to rent. If you're feeling up for a challenge, join our Park Paddlers Club to traverse 22 total miles and earn a bragging rights t-shirt. Guided paddles are offered at some parks to make sure you're able to get the most out of your experience. What are you waiting for? Mountain lakes, ocean coasts, whitewater and blackwater are ready for your next adventure!

Cooling off at a Georgia state park is as easy as can be. Many parks offer lakeside beaches that are included in the cost of your $5 parking fee. Find a pool, splash pad or a sliding rock to up your maximum amount of fun.

BoatingBoating on Lake Seminole

Boat lovers can think of Georgia State Parks as their second vacation home. We offer boat ramps, docks, rentals and marinas. Some campgrounds and cabins even have adjacent docks. Water skiing, sailing and personal watercraft are permitted on large lakes; however, some parks on smaller lakes have horsepower restrictions to preserve the tranquil setting and wildlife.
