Newnan Georgia Things To Do

The park is located in a graceful curve of the Chattahoochee River and is a paradise for paddlers, campers and anglers. Boat ramps offer easy access to the water, while more than six kilometers of wooded trails are open for hiking, nature and photography. The University of West Georgia has two campuses, one in Athens and one in Newnan, Georgia. The bridge over Highway 16 is 15 miles away, and it is just a short drive from downtown Atlanta and a few miles south of the Georgia Tech campus.

While most of the park has been largely left in its natural state, campers can stay within its boundaries. The park even offers screened-off accommodations - in Adirondack - for families and groups looking for a unique camping experience.

No reservations are required, but paddlers can take the boat to the campsite, attach it to a ramp or rail and dock it if they wish. Tubes are recommended, but should be used in conjunction with kayaking, not in place of kayaking.

Soon it will pass under the Chattahoochee River and, depending on the water level, through Newnan and then across the river to the east.
