Must see · State Park · Nature / Park
Hard Labor Creek State Park is a 5,804 acre (23.49 km²) Georgia state park located between Bostwick and Rutledge. The park is named after Hard Labor Creek, a small stream that cuts through the park. The creek's name comes either from slaves who once tilled the summer fields, or from Native Americans who found the area around the stream difficult to ford. The park plays host to an 18-hole public golf course, which offers a pro shop, driving range, rental cars, and senior citizen discounts. Rocky Creek provides many of the water hazards on the course including the 14th hole with its signature water wheel.

  • A few weeks ago, I came up with the idea to visit all the GA State Parks and Historic Sites in GA. This one was first and it was wonderful!! Such a clean place—restrooms and the organization of RV’s.....  more »
  • This is a wonderful beautiful park. Huge spacious wooded sites. Very quiet. Unfortunately we were only there for the night. Passing through on our way home. We will definitely be back. Maybe relax a few days
  • Went on a good friend's recommendation, first time, loved it! Only rode the Red trail. It's about 7 miles and consistently real good. No obstacles, unless you encounter a turtle in the path, which I did. It has a little root action and even less rocks. Just hard packed dirt, which keeps you moving. Can't wait to go back for the other trails!
