Park officials recently announced plans to construct new adventure cabins at Chattahoochee Bend State Park. Bids are currently being taken on the project which is set to begin in September.
“The plans are to build 10 adventure cabins in two separate phases,” said Erin Kenner, park manager. “Phase I will consist of the construction of 3 to 4 cabins and a pavilion and playground area nearby. The rest of the cabins will be constructed in Phase II.”
The Georgia State Financing and Investment Commission is accepting bids for the $1,200,000 project on behalf of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
“Each cabin will have two bedrooms, and one large, living-room space,” said Kenner. “The cabins will also have a front and back porch area, as well as a picnic table and fire pit.”
The park currently has 51 campsites, one Adirondack camping area, two picnic shelters, and 11 walk-in camping sites. Chattahoochee Bend is one of Georgia’s largest state parks and is situated along five miles of protected river frontage on the Chattahoochee River. Park goers can explore more than six miles of wooded trails, enjoy fishing, kayaking, and many other activities in the nearly 3,000-acre park.
