Peaceful Winter Hikes

Cloudland Canyon by Christopher Sewell

Experienced hikers know that winter excursions mean quiet beauty and peaceful solitude. Bare canopies let you appreciate unique tree shapes and bark texture, plus you can see farther through the forest. Small streams and waterfalls, rock outcrops and even wildlife are more easily spotted. A few great winter walking destinations include Cloudland Canyon, Fort King George, Fort Mountain, High Falls, General Coffee, Pickett’s Mill Battlefield and Providence Canyon. Find a trail near you on and check out these safety tips.

Valentine's and Galentine's Getaways

Heart sunset

Georgia State Parks offer plenty of ideas for surprising your sweetheart or getting away with your besties. Plan a cozy cabin trip and cuddle up by the fireplace, or toast s’mores outside your glamping yurt. Spend the day playing Cupid during archery classes at Hard Labor Creek State Park, or take a sunset hike at Panola Mountain State Park. You can even enjoy a candlelit dinner and dance at Fort McAllister State Park. We'll help make it a holiday to remember.

Do you have a love story of getting engaged at a state park, or how a first-date hike turned into a lifelong romance? We’d love to hear from you! Tell us your stories and we'll share some on Facebook throughout February.

Spring Break Getaways

Fishing girl

It won’t be long before Spring Breakers are sleeping under the stars, hiking along waterfalls, fishing for bass or just lounging by a lake. Our rangers have planned programs for all ages too, like nature crafts, campfire s’mores and archery classes. If your idea of “park hopping” means exploring as many nature trails as you can find, save money with the new Combo Pass that includes access to more than 60 Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites. Plan your spring break today by reserving a cabin, yurt or campsite. Find more ideas on
