The Georgia Guidestones are a local mystery and display a 10-part message in 12 languages to mankind. The Broad River is great for paddling trips. The county's eastern border with South Carolina is formed by the Savannah River, which has been dammed to create Lake Richard B. Russell and the Clark Hill Reservoir. Richard B. Russell State Park is on the shores of Lake Richard B Russell. Golfers can play an outstanding round of golf at Arrowhead Pointe. Bobby Brown State Outdoor Recreation Area is on Clarks Hill Lake. Beaverdam Marina serves the needs of boaters and fishermen. Learn more about the granite industry and the statue of Dutchy at the Granite Museum.
