Elijah Clark State Park is located on the eastern border of Georgia along a large lake, Clarks Hill Lake. Like the other parks bordering lakes along the eastern border, such as Hart Outdoor Recreation Area and Richard B. Russell State Park, the lake is the drawing point for many of the visitors to Elijah Clark. The lake offers many fishing and boating opportunities, as well as swimming, canoeing, and kayaking. For those wanting to be in the water all weekend, or those who just want to be out in nature, Elijah Clark provides plenty of camping, with nice campsites along the lakeshore. There are also a few short hiking trails in the park for those wanting to stay on shore. Amidst all the outdoor activities, visitors are also able to explore a replica of the log cabin owned by the park’s namesake, replete with furniture, tools, and other items from the period. While Elijah Clark is a boaters’ or fishers’ paradise, the park offers a little something for anyone who visits.
