This Hidden Beach In Georgia Will Take You A Million Miles Away From It All

Georgia is one of the states that is lucky to be considered a coastal state because residents and visitors can enjoy access to an array of beautiful beaches. From St. Simons to Jekyll Island, and even the famed Driftwood Beach, Georgia has it all. People will flock to our state every year in order to dip their toes in the Atlantic, and spend their summer vacations lounging in the sand.

However, the downside to having some pretty fantastic beaches is that they are often crowded. Especially during the summer. So, it’s time that we released one beach that’s been up our sleeve for you to enjoy. It’s the perfect beach to bring your whole family, spend the day swimming in the beautiful waters, and pretend that you’re on a tropical island a million miles away from it all.

We’re talking about The Beach at Clayton County International Park in Jonesboro, Georgia.

This man made spot in Jonesboro is a great place to disconnect from city life and dip your toes into some refreshing water. The cost of admission is only $11 for adults, $9 for children, and under two are free! There are so many things to do at this beach, it’s hard to get your fill after just one day here. The water slides will make you feel like you’re at a theme park, not to mention the access to the beach volleyball and picnic areas.

A cool fact about Clayton County International Park, is that it was the site for a few of the 1996 Olympic competitions. Visitors can actually play on the sandy volleyball courts where the ’96 Olympic athletes were competing for the gold medal!

The Beach at International Park is open seasonally, and has a spring-fed lake more than 6-acres in size. That’s a pretty big lake! Part of the attraction too, for The Beach at International Park, is that there is also a slew of water slides, an adventure kiddie pool, splash pads, and white, sandy beaches.

You also don’t need to stay strictly at the beach if you’re looking for a good time. Clayton County Park has over 200+ acres of trails to hike or bike, plus a few fishing lakes for you to cast your line and see what comes up!
