Buck Shoals State Park

Buck Shoals State park is a state park and recreation area located in the Helen, Georgia area. The park is offering “Women for the Woods at Buck Shoals” on Saturday, September 14, 2013.

In the past, events at this park were not widely attended by the public because until recently, it was only accessible by water. Recent improvements have provided improved access to this rustic location.
