General Cofee State Park.
Copyright: - Georgia State Parks
General Cofee State Park.
Description - Donated to the state by a group of Coffee County citizens in 1970, this 1,511 acre park is named after General John Coffee, a planter, U.S. Congressman and military leader. Seventeen Mile River winds through a cypress swamp, and the park hosts rare and endangered plants. Many species of wildlife, including the threatened indigo snake and gopher tortoise, may be found here. Agricultural history is interpreted at Heritage Farm, with log cabins, a corn crib, tobacco barn, cane mill, farm animals and other exhibits.

Overnight accommodations include the Burnham House, an elegantly decorated 19th century cabin, as well as four cottages, a 32-person group lodge, 50 tent, trailer, and RV sites, and pioneer campsites. There are also six picnic shelters, a winterized group shelter, an outdoor amphitheater, a four acre lake, and a swimming pool.

Recreation - General Coffee State Park offers a variety of activities such as history and nature programs, a four mile nature trail, camping, picnicking, fishing, swimming, and canoeing.

Climate - Georgia has a warm climate, especially in the southern regions of the state. Expect high temperatures and humidity levels during spring and summer months. The area can offer a relatively warm escape for snow-free outdoor recreation during the winter months.

Location - General Coffee State Park is located in the Coastal Region of southern Georgia. The park is found six miles east of Douglas on Georgia Hwy. 32.
