"Little Ocmulgee State Park in south Georgia offers a wide variety of recreational opportunities. There is the 18-hole Wallace Adams Golf Course, a 265-acre lake with boating, swimming, and fishing facilities, and for hikers, the Oak Ridge Trail. The park was once at the edge of an ancient ocean, so the terrain is composed of moist, fertile swamps with dry, sandy ridges—an interesting area to explore, for the day or over a weekend. The 2.6-mile Oak Ridge Trail is a loop hike profiled here in a clockwise direction. To start the hike, leave the lodge and cross over a short boardwalk, heading southwest. Here the trail is typical of the coastal areas in eastern Georgia and South Carolina, with the moist, swampy terrain typical of the Low Country. Tupelo, cypress, maple, and longleaf pine are common trees in the area, and hikers might notice birds such as the blue heron soaring the skies around the dammed lake."

This park is much more scenic than I would have thought. Although it lacks stunning vistas, or really any long distance view period (except a couple of views across the lake) it does have some very pretty intimate views of wooded hillsides and small streams.

I took my dogs, and they also seemed to enjoy it.
