Sprewell Bluff Park

Sprewell Bluff Park is one of Georgia's best kept secrets. This 1372 acre park is best known for it's breathtaking views, diverse ecology, campground, recreational amenities, and proximity to the Flint River.


A short 50 mile trip heading south from Atlanta will bring you to one of the most peaceful and beautiful parks in Georgia. Sprewell Bluff Park is located off Highway 74, about 10 miles west of Thomaston, Georgia. From Georgia Highway 74, turn on Old Alabama Road, and go south 6 miles to the park.  


This gem on the Flint River is a perfect location for an overnight trip or a relaxing day in the park. Visitors can cool off in the gently flowing Flint River, skip rocks across the water, picnic along the river's edge or go for a hike on the miles of trails along the river bank and up rocky bluffs offering excellent views from high above the river. Visitors can pick up park maps and more information on the park from the Trading Post and Information Center which is located at the entrance of the park.

You will find the following at Sprewell Bluff Park:

  • Trading Post
  • Campground
  • Lookout Deck
  • Public Restrooms
  • Visitor Information Center
  • Day Use Park 
  • Pavilions
  • Picnic Tables & Grills
  • Hiking Trails
  • Boat Ramp


The park site itself has been owned and managed by the Georgia Power Company. In the early 1990s the site was leased by the State of Georgia and designated as Sprewell Bluff State Park. The original intent for the Park was to be an "unmanned" day-use only facility.

In January of 2013 the park came under new management. The Upson County Board Of Commissioners took over management of the former state park and making it a county park. Upson County has updated the facilities and the recreation areas. New trails, a Trading Post, an Overlook Deck, Cabins, Camp Sites, and much more have been added and are open to the public.
