Amicalola Falls State Park and Lodge in Dawsonville, Georgia. Photo by John Seibel Photography


Dawsonville is situated just an hour north of Atlanta along Georgia's Hospitality Highway. It is home to Amicalola Falls State Park & Lodge, featuring Georgia’s tallest cascading waterfall and the Approach Trail to the Southern Terminus of the 2,146-mile Appalachian Trail. The park is also the access point to the state's only backcountry lodge, the Len Foote Hike Inn, nestled in the Chattahoochee National Forest. 

As the birthplace of stock car racing, the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame Museum displays memorabilia from NASCAR Champions Bill and Chase Elliott and hundreds of other Georgia legends. A short distance away is Gordon Pirkle's infamous Dawsonville Pool Room, serving up Bully Burgers and fresh cuts daily. Test your skills behind the wheel at the most unique kart racing track in the world, the Formula 1-designed Atlanta Motorsports Park. 

In the fall, Dawsonville comes to life with memory makers like Burt’s Pumpkin Farm, Fausett Farms Sunflowers, Uncle Shuck's Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch, and Bradley's Pumpkin Patch.
