Explore Little Ocmulgee State Park
Little Ocmulgee State Park is a tranquil 1,360-acre Georgia state park located 2 miles north of McRae on the Little Ocmulgee River.
The park’s history dates back to the 1930s, when it was first constructed by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps around the natural diversion of the Little Ocmulgee River which created a lake. This 256-acre lake features a small beach and is close to the Wallace Adams golf course.
One of the distinctive features of the park is the soil, which along the Ocmulgee River and the Little Ocmulgee is a fine white sand, providing the lake with a delightful beach. The park also features the 2.6-mile Oak Ridge Trail, where hikers can admire a stand of turkey oaks, cypress and oak swamps. Two of Georgia’s rare species, the harmless Indigo snake and the gopher tortoise may be seen from the trail.
Other park features include 7 picnic shelters, a group shelter, a group camp, and an amphitheater.
