Boating in Georgia State Parks

Boating at Tugaloo

Tugaloo State Park



Boat lovers can think of Georgia State Parks as their vacation home. We offer boat ramps, docks, rentals* and marinas. A few campgrounds and cabins even have adjacent docks, such as Richard B. Russell, Tugaloo, Seminole and George T. Bagby. Water skiing, sailing and personal watercraft are permitted on large lakes; however, some parks on smaller lakes have horsepower restrictions to preserve the tranquil setting and wildlife. For added adventure, Stephen C. Foster State Park offers guided boat tours through the mysterious Okefenokee Swamp.

*A.H. Stephens, Crooked River, F.D. Roosevelt, Florence Marina, Fort Mountain, Fort Yargo, George L. Smith, George T. Bagby, Georgia Veterans, Jack Hill (Gordonia), Hard Labor Creek, High Falls, Indian Springs, James H. Floyd, Kolomoki Mounds, Reed Bingham, Seminole, Stephen C. Foster and Sweetwater Creek offer jon boat, kayak, stand-up paddleboard and/or aquacycle rentals. Call the park for the types of boats available and pricing.
