Top Outdoor Activities in North Georgia | Southeastern Expeditions White Water Rafting

This is one of the great reasons to come to Georgia. A Chattooga expedition is your gateway to a romping wet good time. And with different levels of intensity, is often perfect for the whole family.  

Robert G. Hunter Memorial Park

This park covers 83 acres. You can find it in Douglasville on 8830 Gurley Road, which is off of Highway 5. Here you can use the track, pool, play tennis, and take your kids to the playground, or even a fishing lake. There’s a mini train and activity center.

Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park

Let the cartoon come to life at this family fun theme park and campground. There’s really nothing else like it…you can camp in an RV, tent or rent one of 6 cabins, but instead of just a recreation room, you’ll have access to a mini Disneyland. Just with Yogi Bear instead of Mickey.

You’ll find a swimming pool, mini-pool mini-golf, mini-train, gemstone mine and a movie house. Ride tortoises and much more. Many seasonal activities happen as well. It’s two miles from I-20, by exit 9.

Dukes Creek Gold and Ruby Mines

Here you can go into a mine and strike it rich, maybe. At least you can pay for a bucket of gems and get the gold-in-the-pan guarantee. This was a real working and successful mine, where gold was

discovered for the first time in Georgia.
