Family Reunions, Junior Ranger Camps & Memorial Day Deals at Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites

Fantastic Family Reunions

We know it can be challenging to find a family reunion location that fits everyone’s budget and style. Georgia’s State Parks offer a wide variety of facilities, from small picnic shelters to large group shelters, and from rustic camp kitchens to full service catering. Everyone can stay overnight in our fully equipped cabins, hotel-style lodge rooms, modern campsites, “glamping” yurts or dorm-style facilities. Your next reunion is sure to be a big hit – complete with beautiful scenery and plenty to experience all in one location. Hiking, mini-golf, fishing, paddling, archery, championship golf or geocaching? We’ve got you covered!

Junior Ranger Programs for Kids
Children ages 6–12 will have fun learning in the outdoors as they work toward earning their own Junior Ranger badge. Our free activity book lets them experience nature first-hand, explore Georgia’s fascinating history and enjoy outdoor recreational activities as they work their way through three badge levels. Many state parks and historic sites even offer Junior Ranger day camps during summer. Find a camp near you, pick up a book during your next visit or download one for free.

New FootGolf Course Opens May 10
The latest sport craze is coming soon to Gordonia-Alatamaha State Park. FootGolf is a combination of golf and soccer, where players kick a regular soccer ball into 21-inch cups. A grand opening for the new layout at Brazell’s Creek Golf Course is May 10. Anyone interested in learning about the game can play a round for free between 1 and 5:30 p.m. The rules are much like traditional golf, with players aim to kick as few times as possible across 18 holes.

New Outdoor Fitness Equipment
Panola Mountain in Stockbridge is the latest state park to offer outdoor fitness equipment for health-conscious visitors. Stations such as butterfly press and chest press let you work your muscles while enjoying park scenery. Many fitness stations are wheelchair accessible. Check out free fitness equipment at Gordonia-Alatamaha, Sweetwater Creek, F.D. Roosevelt, Don Carter, Skidaway Island and Fort McAllister state parks as well.
