   "Group Shelter, Cottage and Boating Deal" - Call the park at 478-763-2759 for more information. Valid until November 30.
CONSTRUCTION NOTICE: The park's group shelter will be under renovation July–February.  This is located on the drive to cottages 1 through 4.

With natural beauty, lakeside camping and cozy cottages, this secluded park is the perfect south Georgia retreat. It is best known for the refurbished Parrish Mill and Pond, a combination gristmill, saw mill, covered bridge and dam built in 1880.  A group shelter near the bridge is popular for family reunions and parties.  Some campsites sit right on the water’s edge, while cottages with gas fireplaces and screened porches are nestled into the woods.
The park’s mill pond beckons anglers and paddlers to explore thick stands of cypress and tupelo trees draped with Spanish moss.  Canoeists and kayakers can join the Park Paddlers Club.  While on the water, nature enthusiasts can look for beaver dams, blue heron, white ibis and other wading birds.  The park rents boats, and nearby outfitters offer guided paddle trips.  Hikers can stretch their legs on seven miles of trails while searching for gopher tortoises, Georgia’s state reptile.
