James H. "Sloppy" Floyd State Park

Hike into history along the Marble Mine Trail at James H. “Sloppy” Floyd State Park and immerse yourself in tranquility of one of Georgia’s best kept secrets. Enjoy hiking, fishing, and camping 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 fishing on two stocked lakes. After hiking to an old marble mine with small waterfall, plus lake loop trails, visitors can relax in swings while watching for bluebirds. The trailhead to long-distance Pinhoti Trail is 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.
