Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites
Hamburg State Park
SEASONAL: Campground and office open March 15 until November 30. The park's lake, boat ramp, trails and picnic area are open year-round, and the mill is used for special events and corn grindings.

With modern-day facilities amidst reminders of days gone by, Hamburg State Park offers a wonderful mix of history and outdoor recreation. A campground offers shaded sites along the edge of quiet Hamburg Lake fed by the Little Ogeechee River.  Open seasonally, the campground provides hot showers, water and electric hookups, and a dump station. Anglers can enjoy fishing for largemouth bass, crappie and bream, as well as boat ramps and a fishing pier.  Wildlife enthusiasts should look for turtles, alligators, raccoons, deer, birds and numerous other animals that live within the park.  The restored 1921 water-powered gristmill is still operational and used to grind corn during events.  The park’s museum is also open during events, displaying old agricultural tools and implements used in rural Georgia.
