Outdoor Activities

Georgia’s vibrant spring and fall seasons as well as mild winters make enjoying outdoor activities a year-round adventure.

As part of Georgia’s Lake Country, fishing and watersports are popular pastimes in Morgan County. If golf is your pleasure, book your tee time at The Creek, the course labeled “one of America’s best values.” Go horseback riding on a real dude ranch, or enjoy serenity along the first certified forest therapy trail in the U.S. There are so many ways to get outside, so start planning your trip to come immerse yourself in nature.
