Explore the longest covered bridge in the state, spanning 229 feet across the South Fork River, at Watson Mill Bridge State Park. At one time, Georgia had more than 200 covered bridges. Today, less than 20 remain. The park is a popular destination for horse owners with 14 miles of riding trails, 22 horse stables and 11 equestrian campsites. There are also hiking and biking trails. During the summer, visitors often play in the cool river shoals. Canoes and kayaks are available to rent. There is a playground where kids can play and three picnic shelters. Overnight guests can choose from one of the many campsites or three log cabin bunkhouses.
Due to the height (9-foot clearance) and weight (3-ton limit) restrictions for the covered bridge, regular RV campers should enter from Hwy. 22. Equestrian campers should enter the park from Hwy. 72.
HOURS: Park hours are 7 a.m.- 10 p.m.
