Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites
Beach and lake swimming at Fort Yargo State Park.
Whether you prefer swimming in lakes or a pool, your family will take to Georgia State Parks like fish to water.

Lakeside Beaches -- For just a $5 parking fee, you can enjoy cooling off and picnicking all day at our sandy swimming beaches.  For safety reasons, swimmers should always stay in roped-off areas.  Or better yet, spend the night and enjoy a few days at the water’s edge. Check ahead for hours and seasonality.

Pools -- If swimming pools are more your style, take a dip at F.D. Roosevelt, High Falls, Little Ocmulgee, Magnolia Springs or Victoria Bryant state parks. Lifeguards are provided and a fee is charged. Be sure to call ahead about hours of operation.

Splash Pads (spraygrounds) -- For non-swimmers, Magnolia Springs, Little Ocmulgee and Gordonia-Alatamaha state parks offer “splash pads” perfect for toddlers.

"Sliding Rocks" -- Many visitors to Watson Mill Bridge and Tallulah Gorge enjoy playing on their rivers' "sliding rocks."  At Tallulah Gorge, you'll need a free permit.  The number is limited and often runs out early in the day.
