Blanton Creek Park

Blanton Creek is a recreational facility owned and operated by Georgia Power, the state’s primary electricity producer.  The park is located 25 miles north of Columbus, GA. on Lake Harding.  The lake is fed by the Chattahoochee River. It was created when Bartlett’s Ferry Dam was built. Ga. Power uses it to generate hydro electricity. The park is twelve miles east of I85 exit 2 and seven miles west of I185 exit 25.

Blanton Creek Park is a favorite of many area campers. Campers and day use visitors enjoy the water recreation opportunities offered by Lake Harding such as fishing, skiing, boating and personal water craft riding.  There are also many area attractions nearby. A few of these are, Warm Springs, GA (FDR’s little White House), Calloway Gardens, and Pine Mountain. In Columbus there are many restaurants and the National Infantry Museum is located there.
