Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites Remain Open

Stay safe & follow these guidelines when visiting.

During this stressful time, being in nature can be especially comforting. We are fortunate to have a large state park system covering more than 84,000 acres. Gov. Brian Kemp’s Executive Order identified outdoor activity as an essential activity as long as everyone follows CDC guidelines. For this reason, most outdoor areas in Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites remain open, including trails, boat ramps, golf courses, campgrounds and cabins. Our visitor centers, museums, splash pads, playgrounds, boat rentals and some other amenities are closed.

On pretty weekends, some parks may reach capacity and close their gates for several hours. Please be aware that you may not be able to enter or use amenities by the time you arrive. This applies to day-use visitors; those with reservations may still enter. Check and park Facebook pages for updates.

We need everyone’s help in social distancing. Daily and annual ParkPasses may be purchased online. Overnight guests may self check-in. If you choose to go outdoors, please consider visiting a nearby park. Traveling longer distances to Georgia’s most well-known parks is not recommended. This is also a good time to explore photos and maps on, planning future campouts, vacations, family reunions and fishing trips.

We invite you to visit and our Facebook page for the latest updates. Stay safe, everyone!
