Access to the walkway from the parking lot is super easy. No charge to use the walkway. There is always a cool breeze blowing from the lake to keep you from getting too hot while you walk - definitely helping out with those hot Georgia...More

Interesting and beautiful...take the kids and plan a tour. The surrounding lake is full of awesome beauty, parks, picnic areas, and the Corp of Engineers office is also an educational visit. Lucky to have this facility in our area.
