GENERAL COFFEE STATE PARK
One of southern Georgia?s ?best kept secrets,? this park is known for interpretation of agricultural history at its Heritage Farm, with log cabins, a corn crib, tobacco barn, cane mill, barnyard animals and other exhibits. Seventeen-Mile River winds through a cypress swamp where the park hosts rare and endangered plants. The threatened indigo snake and gopher tortoise make their homes in this wiregrass community. Overnight accommodations include camping, cottages, and the Burnham House, an elegantly decorated 19th century cabin perfect for romantic getaways. The park was donated to the state by a group of Coffee County citizens in 1970 and is named after General John Coffee, a planter, U.S. Congressman and military leader.
