This 2549-acre state park is a peaceful tract of wilderness only minutes from Atlanta Georgia. A popular trail follows a free-flowing stream to the ruins of the New Manchester Manufacturing Co., a textile mill burned during the Civil War.
Lake at Sweetwater Creek State ParkBeyond the mill, the trail climbs rocky bluffs to provide views of the beautiful mile-long stretch of white-water rapids below. The 215-acre George Sparks Reservoir is popular with anglers and provides a pretty setting for feeding ducks and canoeing.

Fishing supplies are available in the park’s bait shop, while wildlife and history displays, trail maps, snacks and gift items may be found in the Visitor Center -- the most environmentally responsible building in Georgia. The park's Visitor Center is now open Thurs. through Sat. only.
