Fodor's Review

At 9,049 acres, F.D. Roosevelt is the largest state park in Georgia. Named for the president who considered this area his second home, it's rich in both history and natural beauty. Several park amenities were built by F.D.R.'s Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression, including multiple cottages and the Liberty Bell Swimming Pool fed by local cool springs. The park contains more than 40 miles of trails, including the popular 23-mile Pine Mountain Trail. Dowdell’s Knob, an overlook along the trail, was one of the President's favorite spots to picnic; there's even a statue there now to commemorate him. Within the park are also two lakes and 140 modern campsites, as well as backcountry and pioneer campgrounds.
