F.D. Roosevelt State Park is a 9,049 acre park in west Georgia. It's the largest park in the state and was established in 1938 as a New Deal conservation area under the Roosevelt administration. The park is heavily forested with many oak and pine trees. Most of the visitor facilities are located on the western side of the park. Extensive hiking options include 23 miles of the Pine Mountain Trail. There are also two lakes and a swimming pool. Furnished cabin rentals and both developed and primitive campgrounds are available.
Roosevelt travelled to nearby Warm Springs, Georgia in 1924 to seek a cure for paralysis caused by polio. He later built a small house in the area which was dubbed the Little White House. The park was developed after Roosevelt became president in 1932 and many of the facilities were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps. While much of the park is level, it also has some low hills and overlooks.
The .7 mile Delano Trail was an easy loop hike that began and ended at the trading post. The trail was mostly flat and circled some camping areas; it was never too far away from the sights and sounds of RVs and tents. A 3.2 mile Mountain Creek Trail was a better option for privacy. This trail meandered through woods and over some creek beds. It was level and easy and mostly empty on a November weekend but was generally unremarkable and featureless. Aside from hiking, the 1,400 foot overlook at Dowdell's Knob is worth checking out for the view, which was unobstructed, contemplative and serene. A recently installed statue of Roosevelt represents the president admiring the view. The park is busier in summer, especially for pool swimming and lake boating. Camping is available year round, but would be best in cooler months. While the park is a decent option for outdoor recreation, the nearby Little White House site is a more interesting place to visit. Special park events such as star gazing and guided hikes are listed on its website.
