Staff Tools and Resources
The Georgia State Parks System began in 1931, with the reorganization of the State Board of Forestry. The reorganization act created a Commission to administer the Department of Forestry and Geological Development.
Georgia’s state parks have accommodations for all preferences and budgets. Outdoor enthusiasts can choose from numerous campsites, while others may prefer cozy cottages or hotel-style lodge rooms.
Looking for a scenic getaway close to home? The Georgia Department of Natural Resources has published a free guide to state parks and historic sites that showcases Georgia’s beautiful landscape and interesting history. The 72-page magazine includes color photographs and descriptions of all 63 sites, a calendar of events, and prices for cottage rental, camping, picnic shelters and more.
Georgia is known for having one of the best state park systems in the nation, protecting more than 77,500 acres of natural beauty.
Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites is host to around 17 million visitors a year. Many of our visitors are interested in attending a guided trail hike, wildlife demonstration or interpretive tour. Every day bus loads of school, church and scout groups visit and request an interpretive program, hike or lecture.
If you're handy with power tools and have construction skills, we need your help with light construction projects. Volunteers offer important service in maintaining the park and historic site grounds. If you are interested in spending a few hours mowing or working the flower beds this maybe the area for you.
