Conveniently located off Highway 441 in south Georgia, this park features a wide variety of amenities. Golfers can test their skills on the 18-hole Wallace Adams Course with clubhouse, golf pro and junior/senior discounts. The 2.6-mile Oak Ridge Trail winds through scrub oaks and pines towards a vulture roost and boardwalk. During summertime, children will especially enjoy the park's new splash pad where they can run through fountains and squirt their friends. A 60-room lodge offers hotel-style guest rooms, meeting facilities and a restaurant with golf-course view. Facilities are available for meetings, reunions, weddings and other group gatherings.
Golf Course
Wallace Adams Course has breathtaking surroundings and impeccable conditioning. With loblolly pines, magnolias and willows line the broad Tif 419 Bermuda fairways. The newer front side is a bit tight and demands shotmaking skills, while the older back nine is more open and presents its challenge via doglegs and smaller more sloped Tif Dwarf Bermuda greens. On-site 60-room lodge and restaurant make this a true golf destination.

Trails
OAK RIDGE TRAIL

This 2.3-mile trail loop provides a winding moderate walk through the sandhill and longleaf pine eco-systems. Various plant and animal species may be seen, including longleaf pine, wiregrass, gopher tortoises, wild turkeys, Spanish moss and several species of snakes. The trail also includes a boardwalk out onto the blackwater streams of the Little Ocmulgee River where tupelo and bay trees grow.

SHORT LOOP TRAIL

This trail is 1.7 miles in length and winds through the longleaf pine eco-system with views of large magnolia trees, Spanish moss, and various pines including loblolly and longleaf.

BAY BOARDWALK

The boardwalk takes you into an uncommon bay forest ecosystem. This hardwood wetland is dominated by three species of broad-leaved evergreen trees: loblolly bay, swamp bay and sweetbay magnolia. It grows on acid, peaty soils on the southeastern coastal plain. Typically, swamps in south Georgia contain cypress or gum trees. Even during the winter, the bay forest appears as a wall of dark green foliage. During the summer the deep shade feels cooler than the surrounding pine forest. The dense vegetation traps moisture, so the air is more humid and the ground stays moist.
Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 15 Our own front yard. by Natalie Camp
We love taking the children there for the playgrounds, splash pad and activities that are often planned. The kids all love the idea that they might see an alligator. I often take the kids there for pictures as it is so beautiful with the moss hanging from the trees. I have seen deer, rabbits, hawks, snakes and even a few alligators while visiting. It is also a great place for the children to learn about and grow to love nature because there is always something to see there. I hope many more generations will be able to enjoy the park.
