Chattahoochee Bend State Park, located in a graceful bend of the Chattahoochee River in northwest Coweta County, is a haven for paddlers, campers and anglers. At 2,910 acres, Chattahoochee Bend is one of Georgia's largest state parks, protecting seven miles of river frontage. A boat ramp provides easy access to the water, while more than four miles of wooded trails are open for hiking, biking and nature photography. An observation platform provides nice views of the river and forest.

Although most of the park has been left in its natural state, campers have many options for staying overnight within park boundaries. RV owners have their own camping section with spacious pull-through and back-in sites. Tent campers can choose from riverfront platform sites, walk-in sites and traditional developed campsites. Bathhouses with hot showers are a short walk from all campsites. Covered picnic shelters may be rented for birthday parties, reunions and other gatherings.
