Equestrians have a new reason to gallop over to A.H. Stephens State Park in Crawfordville.
The park has opened 20 new horse stalls and will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 29. The public is invited to this event. Later that evening is the park’s “Haunted Evening” with a hayride, treats, movie on the lawn, campfire, campsite decorating contest, costume contest and more.
The new horse facility is adjacent to the existing 10 stalls, and is near 21 miles of horse trails, 20 equestrian campsites and four cottages. The equestrian campground and stable area were designed to accommodate large trailers. The trail fee is $10, with a $60 annual pass available. Stalls rent for $12 per night, campsites begin at $21 and cottages begin at $125.
Located just off I-20 between Atlanta and Augusta, A.H. Stephens State Park offers four miles of walking trails, fishing lakes, kayak and stand-up paddleboard rental, bike rental, horseshoes, geocaching and a Civil War history museum.
To reach A.H. Stephens State Park, take I-20 exit #148 and follow park signs. Reservations can be made by calling 800-864-7275 or at GeorgiaStateParks.org/AHStephens.
