Chattahoochee Bend State Park

Supported by a local Friends chapter, Chattahoochee Bend State Park showcases a spectacular tract of wilderness in northwest Coweta County. Located in a graceful bend of the Chattahoochee River, the park is a haven for paddlers, campers and anglers. At 2,910 acres, Chattahoochee Bend is one of Georgia’s largest state parks, protecting five miles of river frontage. A boat ramp provides easy access to the water, while more than six miles of wooded trails are open for hiking and nature photography. An observation platform provides nice views of the river and forest. Although most of the park has been left in its natural state, campers have many options for staying overnight within park boundaries. RV owners will enjoy the camping section with sunny pull-through and back-in sites. Tent campers can choose from riverfront platform sites, walk-in sites and traditional developed campsites. The park even offers screened Adirondack-style shelters for families and groups who want a unique camping experience. Bathhouses with hot showers are a short walk from most campsites. Covered picnic shelters may be rented for birthday parties, reunions and other gatherings.

Special Story - Santa Hikes at Chattahoochee Bend State Park

This year we will once again be holding Santa Hikes! Each hike will be approximately 2 miles round trip but may be modified depending on the group. 

For three Saturdays in December, we will be meeting at 1:00 pm to start our adventure. For December 3rd and 17th, we will meet at the Day Use parking lot. These hikes will head down the Riverside Trail to the observation tower. Due to other activities in the park, we will meet at the Visitor Center on December 10th to explore part of the Wild Turkey and Brown Thrasher...

Second Saturday Workday

Come join us the Second Saturday of each month to work on improvements in the Park.  We meet at the Visitor Center prior to moving to the work area.  We could be grooming trails, putting up sign posts, doing repairs, just about anything.  Follow us on Facebook for details.  During the winter we start at 10:00am, during the warmer months we start at 9:00am to beat the heat. 

Your State Park Day

We will be changing our Wild Turkey Trail to avoid entering the roadway to cross the creek.  Materials are staged but we need you to help with putting the bridge together.  Changes to the existing trail will need to be cut and areas blocked that are no longer in use.  Other projects we may tackle this day are installation of a water safety kiosk, silt fence removal and recycling of metal supports.  Many hands make light work, join us in making your Park better.
