Chill Out and Make a Splash this August

splash pad

Whether you prefer lakes, pools, rivers or splash pads, we have a spot for you to chill during this last month of summer. Kayaks, canoes and stand-up paddleboards are available for rent at most of the state parks, and members can bring their own as well. Join our Park Paddlers Club and you’ll explore six beautiful waterways, from the marshes of Crooked River to the mysterious Okefenokee Swamp. Be sure to stay safe around water by following SPLASH tips.
