Gordonia-Alatamaha State Park is a 662-acre (268 ha) Georgia state park located in Reidsville, a city on Georgia's coastal plain region. The park is known for having a dramatic history, having been previously under water for nearly 20 million years. Until about 1 million years ago, the area was very similar to the dense jungles and plains of Africa. The park is named for the nearby Altamaha River and the park's nearly extinct Gordonia Tree. The park contains a 12-acre (4.9 ha) lake stocked with fish, as well as a 9-hole golf course, named Brazell's Creek, which has recently been upgraded to 18 holes.
