James H. "Sloppy" Floyd State Park

James H. Floyd State Park

Hike into history along the Marble Mine trail at James H. “Sloppy” Floyd State Park and immerse yourself in tranquility and the gorgeous setting of one of Georgia’s best kept secrets while hiking, fishing, and boating in the state’s geologically significant Ridge and Valley region.

Surrounded by rural countryside and the Chattahoochee National Forest, this quiet park in northwest Georgia offers outstanding fishing on two stocked lakes. Visitors can hike along three miles of lake loop trails and relax in swings while watching for the many bluebirds that live in the park. The trailhead to the scenic 60-mile Pinhoti Trail is only a 1.6-mile hike away.

Children especially enjoy the playground, feeding ducks from the lake’s boardwalk and renting pedal boats. A small campground and four cottages are nestled on tree-covered hillsides. This park was named for Rep. James H. “Sloppy” Floyd who served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 1953 until 1974.
