With natural beauty, lakeside camping and cozy cottages, this secluded park is the perfect south Georgia retreat. It is best known for the newly refurbished Parrish Mill, a combination grist mill, saw mill, covered bridge and dam built in 1880 and now open for tours. Anglers and canoeists can explore the mill pond dotted with Spanish moss-draped trees and home to blue heron and white ibis. Hikers can stretch their legs on 11 miles of trails while searching for rare gopher tortoises, Georgia's state reptile. The park is named after one of Georgia's great legislators.
Located between Metter and Twin City off Ga. Hwy. 23. Take I-16 exit #104.
