Description

High Falls State Park is located northwest of Macon. Boat rental, ramps and fishing docks provide easy access to the park’s lake, known as one of Georgia’s top fishing spots for hybrid and white bass. Overnight visitors can choose from a spacious campground or lakeside yurts, which are like canvas and wood tents. Each yurt features a small deck, picnic table and grill outside, plus furniture, electrical outlets and a ceiling fan inside. During summer, guests may cool off in the park’s swimming pool. Visitors can hike along the river’s edge and through hilly forest to the remains of a hydroelectric power plant foundation. The park is a popular camping destination and a relaxing side trip for travelers on I-75.
