Experience the Outdoors!

The staff of the Lake Tobesofkee Recreation Area would like to welcome you to the most complete and hospitable recreation facility in Middle Georgia. 

Call us at (478) 803-4556 for more information about our parks, events, and rates, or follow the links above and below. 





Claystone and Arrowhead Parks at Lake Tobesofkee will reopen to the general public on May 4 from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Sandy Beach Park will open Memorial Day Weekend, which is when it opens every year. People should not gather in groups of 10 or more people.


The cost for the two parks is $5.00 per vehicle, $15.00 for vehicles holding 15 or more people, $5.00 per vessel, and $30.00 per bus. The beaches will be open, but there are no lifeguards on duty. If people swim, it will be at their own risk. Camping (both tent and RV) will be allowed again by reservation beginning May 4. Call 478-474-8711 or 478-803-4556 for availability and pricing.


With the recent storms, some of the bike trails at Arrowhead Park may be blocked or damaged, so riders are urged to use caution until they can be fully checked. The Ocmulgee Mountain Bike Association is working helping to make sure the trails are clear and assessing other conditions.
