Little Ocmulgee State Park is a tranquil 1,360-acre Georgia state park located 2 miles north of McRae on the Little Ocmulgee River.
The park's history dates back to the 1930s, when it was first constructed by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps around the natural diversion of the Little Ocmulgee River which created a lake. This 256-acre lake features a small beach and is close to the Wallace Adams golf course.
One of the distinctive features of the park is the soil, which along the Ocmulgee River and the Little Ocmulgee is a fine white sand, providing the lake with a delightful beach. The park also features the 2.6-mile Oak Ridge Trail, where hikers can admire a stand of turkey oaks, cypress and oak swamps. Two of Georgia's rare species, the harmless Indigo snake and the gopher tortoise may be seen from the trail.
The 60 rooms in the main lodge and the ten lakeside cabins at Little Ocmulgee capture the rustic flavor of the Georgia countryside. All lodge rooms, cabins, and campsites are fully air-conditioned; offer WiFi, and full conveniences.
One of the hidden gems of the South, golfers who play a round at Wallace Adams rarely forget the experience. The classic course is surrounded by loblolly pines, willows, and magnolias, in a gracious and secluded setting.
The Fairway Grill restaurant overlooks the sixth and seventh holes of the Wallace Adams Golf Course, and is open year-round for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The chef prepares simple and hearty classic Southern meals, and provides full catering for the lodge. In addition to the Fairway Grill's main dining room is a separate private dining room for groups of up to 28 people.
