- Named after one of Georgia's great legislators, George L. Smith State Park has many natural and historical highlights. Visitors can tour the grist mill, covered bridge and dam of Watson Mill, built in 1880. Anglers and canoeists will enjoy the mill pond dotted with moss-draped cypress trees. Park guests may even see blue heron, white ibis and the threatened gopher tortoise. The quiet beauty of this secluded 1,638 acre park makes it one of Georgia's best kept secrets.
