Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites are sacred, special places that preserve Georgia's beauty, protect Georgia's history, and promote a connection between the people of Georgia and the and we occupy. Various Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites trace history from the Showplace of the Cherokee Nation at the Chief Vann House to the World War II Civilian Conservation Corps at F.D. Roosevelt. Our parks feature rare natural beauty such as the monadnock of Panola Mountain and the pristine trout stream at Smithgall Woods.
For a small annual entrance fee, our state parks offer all of us a communal place to picnic, hike, explore, photograph, golf, swim, camp, bird, boat, and so much more. Opportunities exist to earn archery, tree-climbing, crafts, among many other activities. You can get up close and personal with owls, snakes, and the natural world. And, in seeking solace in these parklands we are likely to find our true selves.
Come and join us for an overview of our park system and as we investigate locations across the state that are familiar and fun, secluded and spiritual, noble, and natural. State Park staff members will share programs with us, most pre-recorded, and then offer a 15-minute Question and Answer session. Georgia State Parks are yours to explore, naturally.
