This is a relatively new park named South Shore Park on Acworth Lake. As it is on the south shore it provides a panoramic view of the Lake City. Acworth is known as the Lake City and here is a link to its history courtesy of
Jonnie Lacy


While researching this location I visited three weekday mornings. I was all by myself. Watching the sunrise over the lake was tranquil and peaceful. The mist rising off the water, the birds chirping and rabbits crossing my path added to the peaceful setting. The only other people were some fisherman out mid lake drift fishing. Now if you could ignore the hum of the morning traffic on 92 it is ideal.
The park is not set up for small children. There are no playground items, you are not to feed the wildlife either. You will find a park for kids north east across the lake at Acworth Beach. N33 30.614 W 084 40.916


South Shore Park only has 3 picnic tables, a grill and a port-a-potty. Fishing is allowed. There is a designated swimming area BUT NO LIFEGUARD! Swim at your risk. Dogs are allowed but leash laws are enforced, according to the sign anyway. The park is open sunrise to sunset so be advised at dark they LOCK THE GATE!!!


Across the lake you can see Cobblestone Golf Course, one of Cobb County’s Public courses. It is listed as the #1 most challenging public course in Georgia by Golf Digest Magazine.



Oh I almost forgot about the cache. Well it is a 30 cal ammo can that has been painted black. It is nestled in the wooded area of the park. There are some trails that meander through the woods. You’ll find the cache just off a trail. BTW the pamorama is from the parking lot. Like I said the cache is in the woods.




Thanks for visiting

18:41 - Second visit to this one paid off. Not sure how I missed it cause I know that I looked right where the cache was located. Oh well, some days just go like that. Thanks GA Cacher!
