This is the site of a lesser known confederate civil war prison. There was some archeological work going on when we were there. The spring is very pretty, with turtles and fish swimming under the bridges of the walkway, and there were lots of alligators along the stream. We let our dogs swim in the lake before we realized the gators were probably there as well. There is an aquarium for Georgia fish at the park. The campground is in tall pine trees with shade, but not much privacy. Most are level. Water and electric sites and a dump station.
Had a ton of fun kayaking and hiking around the woods.
reserved a site on spur of the moment after i found one on the water and 50amp. once arrived at the park determined all the sites, but 3 were good and on the water. the trails were good but the white trail needed some maintance. did a tour of the museum and grist mill which was very intresting. park staff were super friendly. lakews alot bigger than i expected but there are rulles about what motors are allowed. over all super nice and very quite park. support our state parks to help keep them maintaines and open.
Very large sites. Very quiet. All but 3 sites are on the lake. Sites 1and 2 are primitive - water, electric and no water view. Site 3 has a view of the water but no direct access for your kayak or canoe. Sites 4-19 have sunrise views. Site 20 sits on the point by itself but has no shade. We stayed in site 21 that was private, shaded and had great access to the water. Sites 21-30 have sunset views. Sites 4-30 have direct water access. They have several buddy sites and several pull throughs. There is one bath house which is older but relatively clean. I never saw anyone else in the bath house. It does have a family bath/shower room. There is a nice shaded playground with a horseshoe pit. Very little to no outside traffic. There is a museum and gristmill and nice park office. If you want a quiet stay to fish and relax this is a great park. They do have 3 trails but we enjoyed the relaxation so much we didn't do them. Maybe next time.
This state park has a beautiful natural spring that is home to aquatic turtles, fish and aligators. It has history as a prisoner of war camp for the civil war and you can see some of that natural history as you walk it's many trails. The knowledgeable rangers work hand in hand with the local college and it's students in archeology to uncover more and more of it's secrets. Here you can play on athe playground with its water splashpad, go down the slides, and walk around the stream looking for aligators (don't feed the aligators) There is birdwatching, kicking and canoeing or paddleboats if you prefer on the lake. You can primitive camp, use a tent or RV space with water and power or rent a cabin. The friends of the park and the rangers host many various activities to make your stay a memorable one. Enjoy!
Small campground with some campsites that are Lakeside. Brand new bathhouse. Very nice golf course, driving range and store. Brand new office and ranger station. A pretty little campground. They do have a splash pad, mini golf course, and playgrounds for kids. There is a short nature trail. We like to go here once or twice a year when we don't have a long weekend and just want to get away for a couple days.
Plenty of trails with birdwatching and animal watching including alligators. There is a beautiful natural spring and the site has a museum. Campground has spacious sites. Bath house is well maintained. There are several playgrounds and a splash pad for the kids. We usually try to get here two to three times a year.
Wonderful views, beautiful sunsets, great fishing and a peaceful place to stay! We woke up to a breathtaking sunrise and enjoyed a cup of coffee with the view. Most sites have a few of the lake and are spaced out. It was quiet and peaceful, just what we were looking forward to. Easy to get in and out of site, check in was quick and easy. Bathrooms and showers were very clean. We will be back soon!
My daughter and I stayed the weekend here in Dec, 2017. It was a nice and peaceful getaway. Nothing really to do but hiking and hanging around the campground. The hosts were great and very attentive to our needs. It was cold at night and they made sure we had enough firewood. The bathrooms were heated and clean. Nice place if you just needed to get away for a few days.
This is our home park. We come for a night or a weekend and sometimes the week. It’s our get out of the house go to park. I love going to the spring and seeing the turtles. Or looking on the banks to see the alligator sunning. Magnolia has just rebuilt their fishing deck to make it wheelchair accessible. I took the trail in my powerchair and was able to go almost the whole trail. Their bathrooms are so clean. We love boating, so using your own boat or renting one of their paddle boats, kayaks or canoes is simple. You will love the friendliness of this park. For the day or for the week, come visit. They have monthly kids movies, and guided tours.
We stayed here in Site 20 at the end of April, first of May 2016 . This is a nice clean park, located right in the City of Reidsville.
The campground is really small, and the spots are really close together.
The bathhouse was clean, and there was plenty of hot water, but it could stand to be updated.
There is a lake alongside part of the campground, and one short walking trail, but it you don't golf there isn't much to do here. It would have been a nice place to relax, but there were LOTS of kids running through the park all the time.
About 8 miles north of Hazlehurst, GA, on a dirt road turn off just before the Altamaha River, this primitive site lies in solitude amongst the loblolly pines. Besides the people who were really loud camping near us, it was a wonderful space. No water or electric hook ups unless you go to the RV site. There are showers, sinks and bathrooms near the river which is only a short walk from the site. There is a boat ramp there and tubing/floating down the river was a popular activity. Bugs weren't too bad thankfully!!
