George L Smith State Park

United States


Brochure InfoWith natural beauty, lakeside camping and cozy cottages, this secluded park is the perfect south Georgia retreat. It is best known for the refurbished Parrish Mill and Pond, a combination gristmill, saw mill, covered bridge and dam built in 1880. A group shelter near the bridge is popular for family reunions and parties. Some campsites sit right on the waters edge, while cottages with gas fireplaces and screened porches are nestled into the woods. The parks mill pond beckons anglers and paddlers to explore thick stands of cypress and tupelo trees draped with Spanish moss. Canoeists and kayakers can join the Park Paddlers Club. While on the water, nature enthusiasts can look for beaver dams, blue heron, white ibis and other wading birds. The park rents boats, and nearby outfitters offer guided paddle trips. Hikers can stretch their legs on seven miles of trails while searching for gopher tortoises, Georgia's state reptile.Brochure Info - RecreationThings To Do & See Biking Birding Boating 10 HP limit Fishing Geocaching Hiking Park Paddlers Club Picnicking Boat Rental Kayak, Canoe & Aquacycle RentalBrochure Info - Facilities and Restrictions1,634 Acres 412 Acre Lake 8 Cottages 18 Tent, Trailer & RV Campsites 4 Primitive Campsites call park to reserve 4 Picnic Shelters 1 Group Shelter (seats 94) 1 Pioneer Campground Historic Covered Bridge & Mill PlaygroundBrochure Info - Nearby AttractionsGordonia-Alatamaha State Park & Golf Course Magnolia Springs State ParkKey InfoFor reservation inquiries please call 1-800-864-7275.
