Nice picnic areas, playground for kids, and peaceful getaway. My grandchildren had a great time swimming, playing, and looking for shells.

Excellent for walking or running. Tails are pretty cool but come to a dead end. The beach area is absolutely gorgeous and great for kids!

The golf course here is one of the best courses in the state of Georgia and it seems to be an amazing secret than not many people know about. Bring your boat you will have the lake to yourself.

There's a beach with a swimming area (and a handicapped swimming area) near the picnic area. I'd post the state park map but this format here won't let me post web links. The website says swimming is "seasonal."
