Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites Are Open

During this stressful time, being in nature can be especially comforting. Georgians are fortunate to have a large state park system covering more than 84,000 acres. Governor Brian Kemp’s Executive Order identified outdoor activity as an essential activity as long as everyone follows CDC guidelines. For this reason, most outdoor areas in Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites remain open, including trails, boat ramps, golf courses, campgrounds and cabins. Our visitor centers, museums, splash pads, playgrounds, boat rentals and some other amenities are closed.

On pretty weekends, some parks may reach capacity and close their gates for several hours. Please be aware that you may not be able to enter or use amenities by the time you arrive. This applies to day-use visitors; those with reservations may still enter. Check GaStateParks.org and park Facebook pages for updates.

Everyone must do their part to help in social distancing. Daily and annual ParkPasses may be purchased online. Overnight guests may self check-in. If you choose to go outdoors, please consider visiting a nearby park. Traveling longer distances to Georgia’s most well-known parks is not recommended. This is also a good time to explore photos and maps on GaStateParks.org, planning future campouts, vacations, family reunions and fishing trips.

Stay safe, everyone!
