Beautiful Hidden Gem
Mar 2021 • Couples
One of our favorite parks. Located less
than five miles off I-85 this 71 acre hidden gem has a lot to offer. The centerpiece of the park is an area of exposed granite shoals along the North Oconee River. Lots to do here. Amenities include four playgrounds, sand volleyball court, miniature golf course, multiple pavilions with picnic tables, walking trails, an old corn mill, amphitheater, individual picnic tables scattered along the banks of the river & a covered bridge. There is also a nine hole disc golf course (2149 feet, Par 27) located just outside the park entrance. Kids love tubing the shoals during the summer. Definitely family friendly. Two restroom buildings. Operating hours vary by season. Closed November-February. Free admission. Plenty of parking. BTW... You should also visit the Historic heritage village also located just outside the park.

Play in the water and more
Jul 2018 • Family
The biggest attraction for Hurricane Shoals is for the river cascading down the rocky shoals. The kids love to ride down the river in their inner tubes over and over. There is also a living history museum part to the park as well. The settlement has multiple old buildings for the curious to walk around and in. There is also a Civil War reenactment during the early fall.

It is a nice place to take the kids to let them play while you sit back and enjoy the shade trees.

Hot day cool refreshing water
Jul 2018
The water here is clean. Not but about 4 inches deep and had got a fast flow top of the huge rock shoals. There are picnic areas, grills, pavilions and facilities. They have a frisbee golf course. A relocated historical settlement has been moved here to form a village. A visit here makes for a cool diversion on a hot day. Kids love it!

Beautiful, peaceful

The river, bridge, covered bridge. In the historic section are some buildings that have been brought in from other places. A scene from the movie "Get Low" was filmed in the church there. "Art in the Park" is a weekend festival every fall, very nice, lots of shade, get some walking in, putt-putt, small outdoor stage & seating, places to sit, play in the water, picnic, BUT CAN'T TAKE YOUR POOCH. I live in that area.

Jackson County 's Historical Hurricane Shoals
Sep 2016
We again attended the Arts in the Park Festival this year. It is a tradition for us. There is a whole field of old buildings that were donated and moved to the park. You can look at them anytime, but during this festival there are Civil War Enactors and people at the houses to help you feel immersed in the history. Down the hill toward the creek you will find arts and craft vendors. The gristmill is put into action and the Garrison family is grinding cornmeal. At the small outdoor theaters you can hear so great music. You can even play in the creek at the shoals. A delightful family venue. There are paved pathways for wheelchairs. You'll love this place and want to return even when there is no festival going on!

Day trip

Growing up near this park brings back wonderful memories of spending the summer months playing in the water here. This park has a couple of pavilions that can be used to host family outings and has some activities such as disc golf and miniature golf. This park also has a small village of houses and old churches from the turn of the century. Walking through the old houses is a window to when society was much simpler and family meant everything. Last but not least this park has a beautiful covered bridge that was not to long ago restored. This park also hosts a lot of events such as Art in the Park annually.

Great rapids and history at this park
May 2016 • Family
As you enter the park on one side you have the shoals, and playgrounds on either side of the water. You can just cross the bridge to access. They also have picnic tables and benches. Even pavilions that I think are for rent. If you enter from the other side you come up on many historical houses and structures you can view, and many times are able to enter them and look around. They have plenty of parking. Its also FREE!
