This is a nice out of the way place. Rarely crowed. It's a great place to get away for a few hours. The views of the river are something to just sit , and take in. I've also camped here . The sites are shady ,and well kept.

The park has a functionable covered bridge (longest one in GA), a creek full of rocks for climbing fun (prepare to come & get a little wet), trails for hiking & horseback riding (horse not included lol). There is a welcome center that sells drinks, ice & a few snacks. There is a bait shop 6 miles down the road... More

My husband and I stopped on our way to the mountains. It was beautiful. I love covered bridges and this one does not disappoint. Loved it. We walked around taking pictures and exploring and had a great afternoon. We will come back...

This place is perhaps my absolute personal favorite place to stay (as in camp) overnight when in the Athens, Georgia area; however, there are crucial (CRUCIAL!) good things and bad things to take note of before staying here: The Good: This state park is a hidden gem. History and natural beauty abound. The namesake bridge is amazing as is the... More

Only stayed one night but the campsites are very nice. I hammock camp and was able to find a great site. The staff was very friendly. Saw deer, hawk and the bridge is beautiful at sunrise. Worth going back to for more days.

$5.00 per car and WELL worth it. Hiking and biking trails, kids' playground, canoeing and paddle boats. No camping. Lots of day use opportunities. Great way to spend the day. 7AM-10PM. Bring a picnic and spend the whole day.

If you want to see an authentic wooden bridge still in operation...visit this Watson Mill! Roll down your windows to get a good whiff of the creosote used to preserve the wood. Then park your car and get out and walk on the bridge to really appreciate it's massive size and construction. When you are ready to cool off, walk... More

Watson Mills State Park had beautiful scenery, a wooden bridge to drive through, pedal boys boats, an equestrian area and a nice trail. The pedal boats only take about a half hour to do which is enough. The people there were very nice and the walking trail was perfect and shaded.
