With modern-day facilities amidst reminders of days gone by, Hamburg State Outdoor Recreation Area offers a wonderful mix of history and outdoor recreation. Anglers can enjoy lake fishing for largemouth bass, crappie and bream, as well as boat ramps and a fishing pier. Campers find shaded campsites along the edge of quiet Hamburg Lake fed by the Little Ogeechee River.  The restored 1921 water-powered grist mill is still operational and beckons visitors to buy a bag of corn meal during special events.

Open March 15 until November 30. The park's office is permanently closed, and camping is self-registration on a first-come, first-served basis. A Campground Host, electrical hook-ups, hot showers and dump station will still be provided. The park's lake, boat ramp, trails and picnic area will remain open year-round, and the mill will still be used for special events and corn grindings.
