Located on a 26,500-acre lake, Richard B. Russell State Park offers some of the state's finest fishing and boating.
The park's campground and fully equipped cottages are located on or near the water's edge for a relaxing getaway.
A nature trail follows the shoreline to one of the oldest steel pin bridges in the area, loops through the adjoining woods and returns to the beach.
The park's new 18-hole golf course, Arrowhead Pointe, is scheduled to open during 2004. Several Indian sites were excavated near the park in 1980 before the lake was filled, indicating that Paleo-Indians lived in the area more than 10,000 years ago. This area is now called Rucker's Bottom and lies deep within the waters of Lake Richard B. Russell. All park facilities are designed for wheelchair accessibility, including the swimming beach.
Facilities include 2,508 Acres with 28 Tent, Trailer, and RV Campsites (with cable TV hookup); 20 Cottages; 3 Picnic Shelters; and a group shelter that seats up to 175 people.
