10 Reviews of George L Smith State Park
Awesome Georgia State Park!!

Small quite very clean campground! Super nice bathhouse. 4 miles of walking trail from the campground. Awesome kayaking among the cypress (3-kayaking trails). Will be back!!

Great but things to know beforehand

We booked for a primitive camp site. The lady on the phone told us it was a 3/4 mi walk. We didn’t mind until it got hot (high 80’s-mid 90’s) on our second trip, a park ranger told us we could drive up to the site. (I only back up this suggestion if you have a 4WD) Of course after walking all that way in the heat we wish we knew that beforehand. So we drove to the pioneer campsite and he said to turn where you see the poles with the chains broke off. He said if the chains are down you’re free to drive up. I was iffy about parking there (after i paid the parking fee of course because of honor code) but by the fresh tire tracks and later hearing someone else’s car beep to lock i felt better about keeping the trucks there and so we did. Also beforehand i saw the weekend we went was all booked up and for how booked it was we were surprised we didn’t see that many cars and now we know why we didn’t after seeing those fresh tracks. Great camping area very dispersed but enough that if you have good vision through the trees you could see other camp sites. As for water we had to drive to the RV park for it. We couldn’t find a dumpster to dump our trash in so if anyone has that information i would love to see that in your review because we want to come back in the winter time. Great hiking, boating, kayaking, and fishing!!! Overall we had a great weekend there and this review was long overdue! As mentioned. Definitely returning in the winter!

One of the Best places in Georgia

Great Trails and Campground a lot of History…. Beautiful Cypress Lake….

Cypress Lake Tranquility

We stayed on site 22 and loved it.  Beautiful and quiet with direct access to the lake.  A new bathhouse since we were there about 2 years ago. Very well maintained.  Grass was cut and the park was clean with the sites well maintained.  We had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed our site so much we stayed in the park instead of going antique shopping as we had planned.  This is what I expect when visiting a Georgia State Park.

Nice place to stay

Very clean and quiet staff very friendly


Real clean fishing and hiking and animals all over

Great park

This park offers a great hiking trail and a huge lake for kayaking/fishing.

Good primitive camp for convenience

Good primitive camping but not the best. It’s the closest to us so it works for a quick one night trip.

Loved it

Enjoyed our stay even though lake was drained for millhouse maintenance . Will return when lake is full again

First to Review
Great park we had a a good time in the pioneer site. Secluded from everyone else.

Had a ton of fun kayaking and hiking around the woods.
