great week of camping

My wife Peggy and I just returned from a week of camping at George L. Smith State Park. All of the state parks in Georgia have hiking trails, but this park has three canoe/kayak trails in its 412-acre pond. The pond is full of cypress trees and the trails take you deep into them. Peggy calls it "kayak pinball" because some places were challenging to get through! At times you were using trees to bump off of in order to move forward. Campground is only 26 sites, most right on the water. Below are some photos from our site on the pond and out kayaking among the trees. The water has a deep coffee color due to the tannic acid from the trees. We had a fantastic time, despite some seasonal thunderstorms. Great place to spend some down time.

That looks awesome. I lived in Georgia in the mid to late 80's and remember the snakes and humidity. Any alligators there?

We spent a week there in March. We were on site 18, looks like the same one you had. We are going back next year!

Norty: we were on site #16. Really enjoy that park.
Bluie5: yes there are Gators but they have so much to eat they don't bother you. Actually they seem to shy away from people and I didn't see any large ones.
