At 9,049 acres, Georgia’s largest state park is a hiker’s and backpacker’s haven. More than 40 miles of trails, including the popular 23-mile Pine Mountain Trail, wind through hardwood and pines, over creeks and past small waterfalls. Many visitors are surprised to find rolling mountains 80 miles southwest of Atlanta. Above King’s Gap is Dowdell’s Knob where President Franklin D. Roosevelt sometimes picnicked and pondered world affairs. A life-size sculpture of the president now welcomes visitors to the overlook.To visit F. D.

Several park amenities were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression, including cottages and the Liberty Bell Swimming Pool fed by cool springs. A wooded campground sits near the edge of a small fishing lake, and privately operated stables offer guided horseback rides. In 1924, FDR came to this part of Georgia to swim in naturally warm springs that offered relief from polio. Today, nearby Roosevelt’s Little White House Historic Site invites visitors to see his modest home, a museum and the pools that first drew him here. Remember there is a $5.00 per vehicle State Parking Fee.

Park is a bit out of the way of anything, but that is part of the appeal. Very clean, spots were very private but very easy to get into. Dog friendly and nice and quite. Pool is awesome! One of the top state parks We have stayed at the best in Georgia thus far! Highly recommend!
Perfection in a State Park. So much to offer you'll need more than the two days camping we had so we're going back next spring for six days. In particular the Liberty Bell Pool with a really nice hiking trail connecting it to the campground. The park offers a ton, with hiking trails, horseback riding, canoe and kayak rentals, and the pool which shouldn't be missed. Lots to do in the immediate area including FDR's Little White House and museum. Very good!
