“Kids love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

This is a very nice place to spend a day in the Georgia heat. There is something here for everyone. Playground and putt putt for the kids, old farm houses/church for the adults to discover, disc golf, and of course the water. If you are into Geocaching there are a couple in the Park and even more in the area. The Jackson County GeoTrail is a MUST.

“Nice beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Clean and friendly beach. Small but inviting. Option to go canoeing or kayaking for $5 per hour and $2 each additional hour. This includes the use of life jackets. Everyone is so nice. There are picnic tables throughout the park as well as grills, restrooms and a boating area The boats are on the opposite ends from the beach so you are able to enjoy the beach in peace and quiet. I love this place. I will return. Oh, there is a $2 per person to enter the park.

“Great Hiking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

Another great place to hike in Athens. Many different trails so you won't get bored. There's a connecting trail to the larger park with a boardwalk.

“We Miss This Place Awfully Bad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2014

I never appreciated fully what a fantastic place this was to spend a day, especially with kids. The beach is gorgeous, and rarely crowded. The disc golf weirdos are always kind and polite. Something is always growing. A three-legged deer teaches us a life lesson. There are tons of picnic tables, basketball hoops, and tennis courts. But you'll probably skip em in favor of the hiking trails or Lake Chapman. Always clean, very accessible, and a great way to introduce the kids to nature. And I totally forgot the dog park!

“kayaking on Lake Chapman is the best!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

Love this park! Only $2 per person and so much to do. Never crowded. Dog park, can rent private fenced areas for $1/hour. Frisbee Golf for only $1 per person. Lake Chapman is clean (no motors) and so peaceful. Lots of hiking trails. Very cute rental pavillions with stone fireplaces! Basketball, beach, volleball, softball...horse trails! They have everything!!
