About: Located between Atlanta and Athens, this popular park features a 1792 log fort built by settlers for protection against Creek and Cherokee Indians. Today, visitors come to Fort Yargo for its wide variety of outdoor recreation and scenery. Mountain bikers and hikers can test their endurance on 18 miles of trails. A 260-acre lake offers a large swimming beach, fishing and boat ramps. The park's heavily wooded disc golf course is exceptionally challenging. For a unique camping experience, visitors can reserve lakeside yurts, which are like canvas and wooden tents. Each yurt has furniture inside and a fire ring outside. Within the park is Camp Will-A-Way, a fully accessible retreat operated by Camp Twin Lakes.
