I’ve been to sweetwater several times and is a go-to for day trips. Camping here is fun and facilities available. I always recommend sweetwater!
This park has some great hiking solo or in groups. Beautiful area and you can capture some great photos!
I visited this park for the first time and was amazed how beautiful it was. All the walking trails are well maintained and have excellent views. I highly recommend it. The ruins are very cool to see as well. I was sad you couldn’t walk through them though.
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.
Hiking, kayaking, swimming- plenty of things to do. You can spend a whole day out here just walking along the creek and jumping across the rocks. We took some great pictures and meditated on the water. I recommend this park to anyone living in the area or just passing through 🤙🏽🤙🏽
Tje campground is great but the trails are really what makes the experience. The trails are moderate in difficulty and the views are awesome
The campground is. Ice here but it does get crowded from people from the city and suburbs. The trail to the river is a nice hike with ruins of the old mill.
Loved this campground! There are 5 wall up sites - (bring a wagon) - can’t park at your site and the campsites are up a small hill hidden in the woods. Private sites - water and electric - fireflys everywhere! There are also 10 yurts - overlooking the lake. The bathhouse is clean and there are two showers. There is a playground and a picnic camping area. The staff are extremely friendly! There are 15 miles of hiking trails and they are alongside the creek! Beautiful views. Also the lake has kayak / canoe rentals and fishing! 30 minutes from Atlanta/15 from six flags! Very convenient to grocery stores and small town restaurants!
Beautiful campground with great hiking. I wish there were more tent sites. Very friendly staff.
