Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites

March 2019

Chattahoochee Bend State Park in Newnan

Chattahoochee Bend

Located in Coweta County, Chattahoochee Bend State Park showcases a spectacular tract of wilderness for boating, fishing and hiking along “the ‘Hooch.” At 2,910 acres, this is one of Georgia’s largest state parks. A boat ramp provides easy access to the river, while more than six miles of trails are open for hiking, geocaching and nature photography. During March, visitors can join park rangers for scavenger hunts, wildlife programs, homeschool activities and guided hikes. For a fun getaway, choose from cabins, RV camping, tent platforms and even a paddle-in campsite.

Find Your Adventure this Spring Break

Fishing family

With spring break just around the corner, Georgia’s State Parks and Historic Sites offer many ways for families to enjoy the outdoors. From sleeping under the stars to paddling under a full moon, we have adventurous vacations for all ages. Younger children can earn Junior Ranger badges, while older kids can try out disc golf or archery. Check out these ideas for a memorable spring break that's affordable and close to home.

Planning Your Family Reunion or a Party?

Idlewilde Event Center at Indian Springs

We know it can be challenging to find a special event facility for everyone's budget and style. Georgia’s State Parks offer a variety of options, from covered picnic shelters to the new lakeside Idlewilde Event Center. Everyone can stay overnight in our fully equipped cabins, hotel-style lodge rooms, modern campsites, “glamping” yurts or even dorm-style bunks (the ultimate “kids’ table”). We’ll help ensure your next reunion or party is a big hit, complete with activities for young and not-so-young.
