East Park maintains the most shade out of all the parks in CRRA which makes it a hit for picnic lunches on hot days and very nice for tent camping year ‘round. There are 30 tent sites; each has a picnic table and a fire ring. A bathhouse is available.
There is a pavilion large enough for family reunions, picnic tables, swings, playground, and also a basketball court. The road around the park also makes a nice walking trail. It is right on the river and gives several options for fun with the kids.
To rent a campsite or the pavilion, please contact the Reservations Office at 706-276-1023 or book online.
