RUTLEDGE, Ga. – Who knew a state park, had so many attractions in such a small town? Who knew you could have big fun for little funds about 40 miles outside of the "big city"? The folks at Hard Labor State Park have figured out a way. Tucked away in quaint Rutledge, the park is best known for its golf course; however, it has many exciting attractions including a beach, boat rental, canoeing, pedal boating, campgrounds, a full stocked stable and 22 miles of equestrian trails.

The 18-hole-golf course is described as “beautiful and challenging” the green fee Monday-Thursday is $36, Friday it’s $46 and on weekends and holidays the fee is $45. The fee includes a golf cart. Call ahead for tee times.

Aside from golf, for families the parks biggest attraction is their lakeside beach. The “swimming beach” opens, next weekend, on May 14. The beach is free to park visitors who have already paid their $5 parking charge.
