Moccasin Creek State Park

The central location of Moccasin Creek State Park makes it a perfect spot to begin your high country exploration.  Located on the shores of beautiful Lake Burton in west Rabun County, the park is easily accessible and features camping, boat dock/ramp, fishing pier, hiking trails, picnic shelters and a playground.  It is handicapped accessible.

Sitting on the shores of lovely Lake Burton, Moccasin Creek prides itself on being “where spring spends the summer.” Despite its mountain location, the park is relatively flat, offering easy navigation for large RVs, children’s bicycles and wheelchairs. A fully accessible fishing pier sits above a trout-filled creek open only to seniors 65 and older and children 11 and younger, as well as all ages with a Georgia disability fishing license.

At 2,800-acres, Lake Burton is a prime spot for skiing, boating and fishing. Canoes can be rented during warmer months. Park visitors can tour an adjacent trout rearing station, hike on several nearby trails in the Blue Ridge Mountains or simply relax in this peaceful setting. The park’s central location makes it a perfect jumping off spot for exploring area waterfalls, mountain bike trails, shops and restaurants.
