"The extraordinary beauty of the rugged hills, rocky outcrops, and rolling rapids of Sweetwater Creek have shaped centuries of history engaging you to reconnect with the natural world."

Mistletoe State Park

"Discover the best bass fishing in the area and water sports on Georgia’s largest reservoir or, relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature on the forested trails, winding creeks and scenic shoreline of Mistletoe State Park."

Victoria Bryant State Park

Nestled in the rolling hills of Georgia’s upper Piedmont, this is one of northern Georgia’s best kept secrets. A beautiful stream flows through the park, providing the perfect setting for an after-picnic stroll. Hikers can follow either the short nature trail or the longer perimeter trail that travels through hardwoods and crosses creeks. Animal lovers should keep an eye out for wildlife while passing food plots along the perimeter trail. Two small ponds are open for public fishing, and a swimming pool is open during summer.

A.H. Stephens State Park

"The historic architecture, gentle rolling hills, forested trails and placid lakes of A.H. Stephens Historic State Park, once home to the Vice President of the Confederacy and later the 'boys' of the Civilian Conservation Corps, now provide you an oasis of natural and historical beauty for recreation, reflection and relaxation."
