The northeast Georgia area, especially near the town of Clayton, is a great location to spend time exploring many of its hiking trails, white water rivers, marvelous small streams and clear mountain lakes. The area is sprinkled with a handful of states parks, numerous waterfalls, and plenty of attractive accommodations. Pictured here is Moccasin Creek, a fast flowing stream that lends its name to the state park. Centered around Lake Burton and the lofty Blue Ridge Mountains, Moccasin Creek State Park is known as the park where spring spends the summer. The park's Lake Burton, one of the first lakes in the United States created specifically to generate power, was completed in 1913. The park offers year-round camping, fishing and canoeing. The Lake Burton Fish Hatchery is nearby, and fishing on the lake is excellent.
