High Falls State Park
Once the site of a prosperous industrial town, this site became a ghost town in the 1880s when a major railroad bypassed it. Today, visitors of this beautiful 1,050 acre park can enjoy the scenic waterfall on the Towaliga River and hike to the remaining grist mill foundation. A campground, picnic areas, an outdoor pool, and canoe rentals are also available.
Oh yeah and Saturday on the fourth we went to Indian Springs State Park And Didnt have to pay to park because we already had our sticker from High Falls . It was nice to. You can swim in that lake there and there is a place where the kids can play on the rock in the water it was great also.
This is a natural beauty of a location. The beauty has been detracted form by the states latest attempt to keep people from going out onto the rocks. This is a favorite swimming spot for young people in the area and some do tempt fate with some rather risky slides off of the wet rocks. But to spoil the view for all to correct a problem that is only 5% or less of the visitor populace is going a little far I think. It's still a beautiful place to visit; so if you're in the middle GA area and have a couple of hours or more make this a must do. There are picnic tables, trails down both sides of the falls and viewing platforms to allow perfect viewing of the falls below the dam. The state is trying to restrict all foot traffic on the rocks between the falls over the dam and the falls below the dam; so dipping your feet there is no longer and option.
