This is it! The last of the 63 Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites we visited since we moved to Georgia last year. The first thing we did at Mistletoe State Park was renew our annual pass. In fact, we went one better and got a family membership with the Friends of Georgia State Parks. A membership includes 2 annual passes to parks, free admission to all historic sites for up to 6 people, 2 free nights of camping, and 2 tickets on the SAM Shortline Railway (something I’m really looking forward to taking Trey on).
Mistletoe is located on a peninsula extending into the massive Clarks Hill Lake and has a great beach area that Trey really enjoyed. The park was packed since it was the 4th of July and one nice lady let Trey borrow a float.
After swimming for a while we headed over to a nature trail that follows a small canyon created by wash-off from poor farming practices in the early 1900s (like Providence Canyon). After the hike we treated our sweaty boy to a bucket of ice cream from the visitor center. He deserved it after trekking all over our great state!
