Some have streams and others spectacular ravines, overlooks and lake views. All offer the opportunity to view wildlife. Biking is allowed on trails but is difficult without wide tires. The cottage trail, southeastern parts of the Cliatt Creek Trail and the Rock Dam Trail are most challenging. Located on 72,000-acre Clarks Hill Lake near Augusta, this park is one of the finest bass fishing spots in the nation. In summer, you can cool down at the beach, or throughout the year enjoy 15 miles of shaded nature trails. Why not rent a canoe or enjoy three wildlife observation areas located along park road? Four playgrounds and a hands-on nature center provide fun for the whole family. Ten fully equipped cottages are lake-front and five are log cabins. The campground is on a peninsula, offering spectacular views of both sunset and sunrise over open water. A four-bed tent cabin with electricity and water faces the lake. Activities & Facilities Camping - Mistletoe has 92 campsites with water and electrical hook-ups. Three comfort stations with hot showers and flush toilets are conveniently located in the campground. Four walk-in campsites are available with picnic tables, lantern hooks and pit privies. A pioneer camp with five tent sites, a shelter, fire-circle, water, and two privies is available for supervised groups. Three backcountry campsites are on the Rock Dam Hiking Trail. Cottages - Ten fully equipped two–bedroom units are available to rent year-round. Units 6-10 are log structures featuring large sleeping lofts. Picnicking - The large day-use area includes four picnic shelters and an enclosed group shelter and beach house. A fifth picnic shelter is located in the campground. Picnic shelters are reservable and are otherwise available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The group shelter and beach house are available by reservation only. Please picnic in designated areas only. Fishing - Clarks Hill Lake is open for legal fishing throughout the year. A courtesy dock and three launching ramps are provided. Persons 16 or older must have a valid Georgia/South Carolina resident/non-resident fishing license. Boating - Private boats are permitted on reservoir waters without horsepower restrictions. Three boat launching ramps are provided. Water skiing is allowed and all boats must comply with the Georgia and South Carolina Boating Safety Laws. Canoes may be rented at the park office. ParkPass - A parking fee is required at all state parks and proceeds go toward park maintenance. If you are a frequent visitor, you can save money with an Annual ParkPass or by joining the Friends of Georgia State Parks and get a free ParkPass. The daily ParkPass is valid at all state parks visited that day. There are some obstacles you may encounter on any of these trails. These include exposed rock and tree roots, loose stones and leaf litter, fallen tree limbs, log water bars, uneven surfaces and mud/icing when wet. Cliatt Creek Nature Trail Loop This 3.75-mile trail has a maximum grade of 25% in 200 feet. The trail is blazed white. Parking and the trailhead are across from the office next to an information kiosk. The trail soon crosses a paved road, descends to the Cliatt Creek, follows the creek and then ascends and crosses a second paved park road. It continues its upland loop back to the office. This area was originally fields of cotton, corn and tobacco grown in rotation. Now fields are replaced by pines, oaks, sweetgum and beech. Stop to enjoy the cool temperatures and beauty along Cliatt Creek. In spring you may see a rare silky camellia in bloom. Along the uplands section of the trail, you are likely to see deer.
