  • Peaceful place to watch the hummingbirds. The visitors center very friendly, and learning about Charlie Elliot was awesome. Plan to return to the archery range and pistol and rifle ranges in fall. A land pass is required. Easily obtained. Saw ppl fishing. Great events for fall for woman and at Halloween. Hidden gem.. Respect the land..
  • Great place to hang out to experience some Georgia. Shooting ranges are very good. Well worth the trip every time I go and staff is very helpful and patient. Plenty to see and do while you are there. Not too far from ATL.
