Hard Labor Creek State Park

Incorporated in 1871, Rutledge pays homage to its roots as a railroad town with vibrant murals painted across its buildings, the opportunity to dine inside the last Caboose to ride the local rails and an active Depot that now plays host to a plethora of community events.

As the gateway to Georgia’s second largest state park and home to a charming array of small businesses, visitors can enjoy quaint shops, restaurants, and a spirited events calendar - all within the half-block downtown. Less than three miles from the interstate, Southern Living recently recognized this small community as “a great spot to get off I-20 and get delicious food.”

Rutledge may be small, but it sure is special!
