Amicalola Falls State Park, Dawsonville

Must see · State Park · Nature / Park
The 335 hectare (829 acre) Amicalola Falls State Park means "tumbling water" in Cherokee and aptly describes this park that includes Georgia's highest waterfall--222 m (729 ft) in height. The park also serves as one of the starting points of the 3,500 km (2,175 mi) Appalachian Trail. Stop by the visitor center first to orient yourself, collect maps, and view an Appalachian Trail display. Choose from among four groups of trails, one of which leads up to the top of the waterfall, for treks amidst the mountainous terrain. The park hosts hiking trails, campsites, picnic shelters, lodging, and dining facilities. On site you'll find 25 campsites for tents, trailers, and RVs, and there's a playground for kids.
