Mistletoe State Park

Check Last Minute Availability

Located on 71,100-acre Clarks Hill Lake near Augusta, this park is known as one of the finest bass fishing spots in the nation.  Boat ramps provide easy access to one of the Southeast’s largest lakes.  During the summer, guests can cool off at the sandy beach or on miles of shaded nature trails.  Many programs are hosted throughout the year, such as astronomy programs, concerts and nature walks.  Bike riders who explore this park can join the Muddy Spokes Club.
Mistletoe State Park has 10 fully equipped cottages on the lake, five of which are log cabins. The campground is situated on a peninsula, offering spectacular views of both sunset and sunrise over the open water. A four-bed tent cabin with electricity and water faces the lake.  Overnight guests may rent canoes to explore the large lake.

Voted "Best Park" by Columbia County Magazine, 2012.
