George L Smith State Park is best known for the refurbished Parrish Mill and Pond, a combination gristmill, saw mill, covered bridge and dam built in 1880.
Gordon Ira advises "Lots of good shots can be taken from shore and a lot of folks shoot only from the shore. You are facing East from the shore, so the morning light on the main gathering of cyprus trees is better if you are out on a boat."
The park’s mill pond beckons anglers and paddlers to explore thick stands of cypress and tupelo trees draped with Spanish moss. While on the water, nature enthusiasts can look for beaver dams, blue heron, white ibis and other wading birds. The park rents boats, and nearby outfitters offer guided paddle trips. Hikers can stretch their legs on seven miles of trails while searching for gopher tortoises, Georgia’s state reptile.
