Very nice place to go for a hike, fish or walk. Lots of things to explore and enjoy. Only problem with the park is the parking fees. Local parks with parking fees seem unfair.

We love to take our dog and walk through this park. You can also see a piece of history, an old Civil War factory. Right along Sweetwater creek.

Stayed at Sweetwater Creek State park's yurt rental this past weekend. We were fortunate enough to be the only ones who rented a yurt out of 10 so it was very peaceful and quiet. Upon arrival to our yurt, #10, we saw leftover trash thrown...More

Sweetwater Creek State Park is an easily accessible park, and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that such a place existed so close to Atlanta. There are multiple trails with varying difficulty, and the Red trail which is the easiest of all, was what...More

Did the white trail which is a 5 mile loop that combines most of the varieties of habitat in this beautiful park. The trail could have used more markings; however, it was well laid out and combined woods, fields, river ways and creek beds into...More

No pier. There were people fishing off of the banks. There is a bridge but it is pretty high so I am not sure if fishing off of it would be possible.
