About High Falls State Park

Located Northwest of Macon and great for camping near Atlanta, High Falls State Park is named for tumbling cascades on the Towaliga River. Boat rental, ramps and fishing docks provide easy access to the park’s lake, known as one of Georgia’s top fishing spots for hybrid and white bass. Overnight visitors can choose from a spacious campground or lakeside yurts, which are like canvas and wood tents. Each yurt features a small deck, picnic table and grill outside, plus furniture, electrical outlets and a ceiling fan inside. During summer, guests may cool off in the park’s swimming pool.

Visitors can hike along the river’s edge and through hilly forest to the remains of a hydroelectric power plant foundation. In the early 1800s, this area was a prosperous industrial town with several stores, a grist mill, cotton gin, blacksmith shop, shoe factory and hotel. High Falls fell from prosperity in the 1880s when a major railroad bypassed it. Today, the park is a popular camping destination and a relaxing side trip for travelers on I-75.

31 Reviews of High Falls State Park
Riverside campground is great. Lakeside is alright.

This is a great park for several reasons.  It is ideal to stop and enjoy a picnic lunch in our travels down interstate 75.  It is just a short distance off I-75.  

Camping is good on the riverside where it it cooler and quieter.  Camping on the lakeside is convenient for swimming and miniture golf, however we had some issues with ants.  The facilities are all good.

There are a number of trails that are easy to hike with some grade to them.  The waterfall is a beautiful view.

Beautiful trail next to the water!

We tent camped here on site 112 on the lakeside camping area. We had a view of the lake and enjoyed renting a double kayak from the state park. Bathhouse was clean. Sites on lake are spaced apart a little more than river campground. We will try sites 87 or 88 on the river next time.

Lots of trees,waterfall

Just stayed one night but will return for a longer stay in the fall. It's a great stop as we travel for points north out of Florida as it is close to 75.

Waterfalls

We had the best site at High Falls. Privacy and a path to the river! Riverside campground is the better of the two. More photos and details on the link.

Quiet and shady sites

Nice state park that is quiet and shady sites. 30 & 50 amp electric and water only.

A little cold but fun!

We went in late October. It was a bit cold but fun all the same! The hiking trail was easy enough for everyone (including younger kids). The playground was pretty big and newer (and also had swings!). Bath house was kept very clean and camp hosts and staff were friendly and helpful all around. There are several sites that overlook the lake (but we booked too late for those), but all the sites seem to be pretty big. They also have a mini golf course, and nearby Indian Springs State Park for even more variety.

Great park and falls

High Falls State Park was clean and friendly. We stayed during week days and there were plants of spots available. The falls are very picturesque. We did not hike the trails but we did ride our bikes which was fun. We had a 50 amp hookup, water, table and grill out. There were two dump stations. Highly recommend.

Love it!!

We stayed a little over 2 months here. It was myself(female 48),my boyfriend (48), our friend and my bfs co worker (male 50), and our 100 lb pitbull (4) The place is beautiful. The people are friendly and their pet policy is very lenient. The bath houses were clean. I would recommend this place and I would definitely camp here again.
