This west Georgia park is best known for having the largest sand swimming beach of any Georgia state park. It is a recreational haven for water lovers looking for boating and fishing opportunities as well. Visitors can enjoy camping, picnicking, miniature golf, volleyball and horseshoes. A small lodge located near the beach features six units, each with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living area and bedroom. The park is named after a local businessman who operated the property as a private park from 1954 until 1971.

November 9 Good family fun by David
A good place to bring the family. Fishing, walking trail, playground and Putt putt golf. Great pic nic area. In the summer you can rent paddle boats and canooes. All for a really small fee.
August 15 Running
Nice place to run, one mile track around lake.
August 10 our favorit park for sure
great beach, just need a few full hookups we like to stay a week or more
July 23 Very nice park
Nice park only six miles from my house; nice beach; great, long walking or bike trail around lake; only problem: two-night minimum stay on weekends (but I think that is rule for all Georgia parks - too bad)
May 29 Our home park by Mainman
Less than 25 miles form our home we take our 5th wheel regularly for R&R. Small 32 site campground with paved roads and nice sites. Plenty to do locally with an excellent flea market (Bowden Junction) Personable Staff.
