F.D. Roosevelt State Park

Added by camprate admin

0 reviews

Located near Callaway Gardens and the town of Warm Springs, this park is deeply rooted in the historical era of four-time President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Seeking a place for treatment after he was stricken with polio in 1921, Roosevelt traveled to nearby Warm Springs and built his Little White House. Several structures within the park, including the stone swimming pool and some cottages, were built by Roosevelt’s Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression. Above Kings Gap is Dowdell’s Knob, Roosevelt’s favorite picnic spot overlooking a magnificent view of the valley below. Hikers will enjoy the scenic trails in Georgia’s largest state park, especially the 23-mile Pine Mountain Trail, which winds through a mix of hardwoods and pines.

This park has launched a fund-raising campaign to place a bronze statue of F.D. Roosevelt atop Dowdell’s Knob, the president’s favorite picnic spot when he visited Georgia in the 1930s and 1940s. F.D. Roosevelt Statue Fund
