This park opened on 7/1/11 and is Georgia's first new state park since Tallulah Gorge State Park opened in 1993. It occupies 2,900 acres of varied natural land in western Coweta County, with seven miles of river frontage along the Chattahoochee River. Georgia has 45 state parks and this is the fifth largest.
|How to Get There:|
The park's office is located at 425 Bobwhite Way Newnan, GA 30263. Once you get there continue on Bobwhite Way until its end at the parking lot on the banks of the Chattahooche. We will start the hike from the parking lot.
