Good Place for a beginner kayaker

I am new to kayaking and recently bought my own boat. I wanted to take it someplace with a small, safe lake to spend the weekend practicing. Ft. Yargo was perfect, because I was able to tie my boat up to a tree right at my campsite. I was at site 42, which is a walk-in tent site. It served my purpose well. Otherwise, it's kind of a low-key run-of-the-mill state park. There's a beach for swimming, mini-golf, biking/hiking trails, picnic and grilling space, and they also rent boats (paddle boats, jon boats, kayaks, and possibly canoes). It's close to Atlanta, so if you want to go for a quick trip away from the city, this is a good spot.

Girls’ Trip

Took my daughters and a friend of theirs to Tugaloo. The friend had never been camping. We had a nice trip even though we were not very prepared for the cool temperatures. The girls went swimming and mini golfing.

Great Hiking

Great state park for hikers. Took my 3 kids here and we had a wonderful time. There are some rules regarding bear safety, so be aware of those. Nice lake beach, too.

Great Campground

This is one of my favorite Georgia State Parks. There are many sites to choose from and there are plenty of things to do in the area. This park is great for hikers -- lots of great trails. I went with my three kids and we all had a blast.

Nice but Noisy

Enjoyed tent camping. Nicely maintained facility, but partiers (or a bar?) across the way on the lake played loud music both nights I was there.
