Corporate Groups

From half-day retreats to multi-day conferences, Georgia State Parks have facilities for all types of corporate gatherings, yet our outdoor setting is the real attraction. Meeting inside state parks facilitates two purposes. It helps to clear the mind, allowing you to focus on the task at hand, and it rejuvenates your passion, preparing you to implement plans discussed during your stay.

State parks also offer cost-efficient team building through recreation. When not brainstorming and strategizing, your group can enjoy golf, boating, fishing, nature walks, swimming and an abundance of activities—all without leaving the property. Family members who come along for the trip will find plenty of activities as well.


Lodges at Georgia State ParksFour hotel-style lodges offer meeting planners, catering staff, restaurants and versatile meeting space that can hold 10 to 500 attendees. Guests can stay overnight in hotel-style rooms, cabins or campsites.
