Operated by Carroll County, this west Georgia park is best known for its large sand swimming beach. It is a recreational haven for water lovers looking for boating and fishing opportunities as well. Visitors can enjoy camping, picnicking, miniature golf, volleyball, pedal boats and horseshoes. A short nature trail and paved lake loop invite guests to enjoy wooded scenery.

A small lodge located near the beach features six units, each with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living area and bedroom. Campers can settle in to a small campground.  The park is named after a local businessman who operated the property as a private park from 1954 until 1971.
