Great camping spot for family!

The tent sites and the yurts are very close together. Both of which are right on the lake. Plenty to do for the family,Playground, Fishing, and tons trails by the huge river. All of which are kept up in great condition including the restrooms. This is a 5 star spot for families who don’t mind a social setting. If you wanting a very quiet or secluded experience this may not be the place for you.

Once again - Awesome

Second time tent camping here, but easily my tenth time coming here for the scenery. I bring all out of town visitors here for a great hike and dip in the rapids. Great amenities and wildlife to boot.


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!

Great Hiking

This park has some great hiking solo or in groups. Beautiful area and you can capture some great photos!

Amazing hiking trail

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.

Great hiking and camping near Atlanta

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.

Beautiful place to spend the day

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

Good river trail

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.
