We visited this park a few weeks ago with friends and had an amazing time! The park is set up on the land of an old factory that used the river to power a water wheel. There are a whole bunch of trails of varying difficulty and length that meander through the woods along the river. Along with the campgrounds there are also picnic benches and large group areas where you can host a lunch or dinner. We took the trail that shows you where they built the mill then goes along the river for a while. It was a beautiful hike but definitely challenging since there are a lot of rocks you have to climb over. The campgrounds are nice and across the road from the park through you can also take other trails from there that go down and around the reservoir. The amenities are nice and the whole park is well taken care of. I would highly suggest staying the night since it is such a short trek from the Atlanta area.
This is a must for our family at least once a year..We love the water.We also love the historical trails that lead to the old civil war mill. it's a great hike .
I rented a walk-up tent spot and it was really nice. Each spot was specific in the space and came with a picnic table and benches, fire pit, water tap and powerplug. The spot was big enough for 4-6 tents. You can see your neighbors, which isn't ideal - especially if they want to party and be rowdy. It's also down the road by car from the trails and visitors center which is a bit of a pain.
Sweetwater Creek State Park offers a beautiful hike along the river and ruins. You can also rent kayaks and go out on the lake. There’s a large camp store and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The bathrooms are environmentally friendly in the gift shop and a little different than one would be used to. In the campground the bathrooms are normal and clean.
