Description

Beginning May 1, 2012, Watson Mill Bridge will return to State Park status and the office will be open 8 AM to 5 PM from May 1st until November 30th annually. Reservations for camping and picnic shelters can be made by calling 1-800-864-7275. However, from December - February annually, the office, campground, pioneer sites and group shelter will be closed. The park will be open during this time, but other facilities will be on a first-come-first-served basis. Known as one of the most picturesque state parks in Georgia, Watson Mill Bridge contains the longest original-site covered bridge in the state, spanning 229 feet across the South Fork River. Built in 1885, the bridge is supported by a town lattice truss system held firmly together with wooden pins. At one time, Georgia had more than 200 covered bridges; today, less than 20 remain. The park is an ideal spot for an afternoon picnic or an overnight stay at the campground. Hiking, biking and horseback riding trails allow visitors to enjoy the thick forest along the river or travel into the parks backcountry. During summer, visitors often play in the cool river shoals just below the bridge.
