About the Park

The McIntosh Reserve Park is 527 acres packed with history, trails, a splash water park, pavilions, and sweeping frontage on the Chattahoochee River. The park is a favorite of hikers and equestrian riders.

Park Hours

McIntosh Reserve Park is open year round except for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day. Park office hours are 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily. The park is open:
  • 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. (Summer)
  • 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. (Winter)


Pavilion reservations may be made by phone or in person Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. NO RESERVATIONS can be made for camping, we are set up on a 1st come/1st serve basis. Feel free to contact our office for additional information related to our group camping!


We currently have 50(+) *primitive campsites available throughout the park. Since we do not take reservations for camping, it is always best to call ahead or email the office to verify availability due to any large groups or events that may be taking place on any given weekend. Though we are primitive, we do allow self contained RV's/campers/pull behinds; there is no dump station. We currently have a 3 day limit except holiday weekends. All campers are required to register with a valid ID and no person may camp without a vehicle on site. 
*primitive = no hook-ups/no water/no power


McIntosh Reserve Park is located 35 miles southwest of Atlanta along the Chattahoochee River and can be reached by U.S. Alternative 27 from Carrollton or Newnan and Georgia Highway 5 from Douglasville. Direct access to the park is provided by a county-maintained road that connects with Georgia Highway 5 at 2 miles west of Whitesburg.
