Located by the small town of Rutledge and just minutes from Madison, Hard Labor Creek State Park offers a wide range of recreational opportunities in a beautiful, wooded setting. A lakeside beach is popular with swimmers during summer months, and more than 20 miles of trails are available for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. Equestrians even have their own private camping area near stalls. Other overnight guests can choose to stay at the Park’s fully equipped family cottages, group shelters, or a modern campground with plenty of options for RVs as well as walk-in or backcountry campsites.

But Hard Labor Creek State Park may be best known for its popular golf course. The Creek Golf Course provides one of Georgia's best golf values, along with a pro shop, driving range, rental carts and special rates for seniors and children. The 18-hole course is a favorite for its challenging layout and well-maintained greens combined with a pristine, natural setting. The first hole has been called "the hardest starting hole in Georgia."
