Georgia's 48 State Parks
Waterfalls and lakes, forests and swamps, wetlands and mountains . . . these are just some of the beautiful natural areas protected by Georgia's 48 state parks.  All offer abundant recreational opportunities, such as camping, hiking, fishing, boating, picnicking, golf, disc golf, mountain biking, horseback riding, concerts, birding and photography. Accommodations include modern campsites, backcountry campsites, rental cottages, hotel-style lodge rooms and yurts.

Public Affairs staff can assist with interviews, tours and photography.
