Hard Labor Creek State Park

Supported by a local Friends chapter, Hard Labor Creek offers a wide range of recreational opportunities in a beautiful wooded setting. A lakeside beach is popular with swimmers during summer months, and more than 24 miles of trails are available for hikers and horseback riders. Horse owners even have their own private camping area near stalls. Other overnight guests can choose from fully equipped cottages or a modern campground. With so many ways to relax, it is ironic that the park’s name is thought to come from slaves who tilled summer fields or American Indians who found the creek difficult to cross. Located between Madison and Covington off I-20, The Creek Golf Course provides one of Georgia’s best golf values, along with a pro shop, driving range, rental carts and special rates for seniors and children. The 18-hole course is a favorite for its challenging layout and well maintained greens combined with a pristine, natural setting. The first hole has been called "the hardest starting hole in Georgia.”

Painting Class

The lakeside beach, golf course and equestrian facilities are all popular attractions at Hard Labor Creek State Park. It's no wonder that our Friends volunteers stay so busy helping to support and preserve the natural beauty and cultural integrity of this incredible place! With much to do, the needs of our volunteers grow. To better support the park, Friends of Hard Labor Creek is hosting a fundraiser at the park: Painting Class! 

No matter your artistic ability, come and enjoy this class by Mary Leslie of Madison (...
