General Information

High Falls State Park.
Copyright: - Georgia State Parks
High Falls State Park.
Description - In the early 1800s, High Falls was a prosperous industrial town with several stores, a grist mill, cotton gin, blacksmith shop, shoe factory, and hotel. High Falls became a ghost town in the 1880s when a major railroad bypassed it. Today, visitors at High Falls State Park can enjoy the scenic waterfall on the Towaliga River and hike to the remaining grist mill foundation. With its 995 acres of historic and natural beauty, High Falls State Park is a good place to spend nights camping and days taking life easy.

The park offers 112 tent, trailer and RV campsites, pioneer camping and a screened group shelter. There is also a nearby 650 acre lake, a miniature golf course, a swimming pool, and three hiking trails.

Recreation - Visitors will enjoy the camping, picnicking, hiking, fishing, golfing, and swimming activities offered at High Falls State Park.

Climate - Georgia generally experiences mild, comfortable winters and warm to hot, humid summers. The area can offer a relatively warm escape for snow-free outdoor recreation during the winter months. Be prepared for occasional cold weather during the winter, especially at the higher elevations in northern Georgia.

Location - High Falls State Park is located south of Atlanta in the Plains Region of central Georgia. The park is found 1.8 miles east of I-75 off of exit #65 on High Falls Road.

Report: The first time I visited the falls was about 6 years ago and only saw the dam. Didn't realize the extent of the falls were on the other side. Returned around spring of this year...hiked down as far as my aunt and I could go...took lots of good pics. Knew that I wanted my husband to see this spectacular site as we have visited many waterfalls. The day we arrived was in June and it was pouring rain. We donned rain gear and unbrellas, tucked cameras safely inside and headed down. It was well worth the hike as the water was high and moving very fast. Photography is a passtime for me and the photos turned out great. Do visit the falls and take your time...it's worth it!
