Coversations/Things we learned:
This park is located just outside of Augusta, Georgia and operated by Columbia County. Almost all of the RV sites are located along the lake. We found this park one of the most clean parks in Georgia. There are several boat docks, a nice beach, and plenty of camping, picnicking, and hiking locations. The RV spot fees are also more affordable than Georgia state parks. This is a place you should go out of your way to visit.
The park has good hiking trails to include the Bartram Trail. The Bartram Trail follows the approximate route of 18th-century naturalist William Bartram’s southern journey from March 1773 to January 1777. Bartram explored much of the territory which is now the states of North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee.
