Located between Atlanta and Athens, Fort Yargo offers a fun camping, hiking and fishing experience. The park surrounds Marbury Creek Reservoir, a 260-acre lake with a swimming beach, fishing areas and boat ramps. Many campsites are near the water?s edge, and hiking/biking trails follow the lake shore. Within the park is Will-A-Way Recreation Area, an accessible facility specifically designed for challenged populations, with a group camp, picnic and fishing areas, and paved trail. This historical park features a log fort built in 1792 by settlers for protection against Creek and Cherokee Indians.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
April 27 Great and affordable! by Sara T.
Fort Yargo has always been a favorite place for our family. The swimming area is great! We also love the privacy of the camping sites. If you want to just kick back and fish you can do that to. Either directly on the lake with your own bass boat or rent one of theres. You can also fish from most campsites. Come check it out!
December 1 One of the Best in Georgia
We have camped all over Georgia and beyond and keep coming back to Fort Yargo. Very nice, large, and private camp sites.
