Richard B. Russell State Park-Elbert County
Fishing, Boating, Swimming Beach, Nature Trails, Disc Golf, 20 Cottages, 28 Campsites, 3 Picnic Shelters
Lake stays within 5 feet of full-pool at all times.
Located on a 26,650-acre lake, Richard B. Russell State Park offers some of the state’s finest fishing and boating. The park’s campground and fully equipped cottages are located on or near the water’s edge for a relaxing getaway. Most park facilities are designed for wheelchair accessibility, including the swimming beach. A nature trail follows the shoreline to one of the oldest steel pin bridges in the area, loops through the adjoining woods and returns to the beach.
This park is known for its well-kept disc golf course, where Frisbee-style discs are thrown into metal baskets. This sport is easy to learn and can be enjoyed by all ages. For traditional golfers, the park’s 18-hole Arrowhead Pointe Golf Course offers a pro shop and annual passes. Several Indian sites were excavated near the park in 1980 before the lake was filled, indicating that Paleo-Indians lived in the area more than 10,000 years ago. This area is now called Rucker’s Bottom and lies deep within the waters of Lake Richard B. Russell. -GaStateParks.org-
Russell Dam at Bobby Brown Park-Elbert County
Premier outdoor recreation activities
The ECPR (Elbert County Parks & Recreation) staff are dedicated to serving our community with great customer care and are willing to go out of their way to make sure that you have a great experience in our programs.
We hope you can take time to visit our parks and take a walk, have a picnic, play tennis or simply sit and relax. The parks are for you to enjoy during your leisure time.
In July of 2015, ECPR took over operations at Bobby Brown Park which is located on the Southeastern end of Elbert County. We are excited about this new addition and hope to make it one of the premier outdoor recreation areas in the State of Georgia.
