Camping and Sports at

Fans of outdoor fun in the Winder area should note the city's proximity to Fort Yargo State Park, which boasts more than 1,800 acres of recreational space that includes a 260-acre lake. The park offers many different opportunities for outdoor sports and enjoyment, including mountain biking trails and opportunities for boating, fishing, and swimming on the lake. The park also has a disc golf course and several different options for camping, including yurts and cottages. Fort Yargo is not just a place to get out and enjoy the outdoors. The park gets its name from a historic fort structure from the 1700s that still stands today.

Winder's History

Prior to white settlement, which began in the late 1700s in this area, the land that is now known as Winder was home to Creek Native Americans. When white settlers began to colonize, they named the area Jug Tavern, which was its name until it was changed to Winder in 1893. Jug Tavern was the site of two late Civil War battles in 1864, though the area was untouched by Sherman's famous fiery march through Georgia. The advent of railroads following the war helped to build up the area, kicking off the growth of a town that many people still call home.

Golfing at the Chimne

Because snow and below-freezing temperatures are rare in the Winder area, it is possible for locals here to enjoy year-round golf with minimal discomfort. In fact, summer months, when it can get quite hot and humid, might be more unsuitable for golf than wintertime. Winder locals can take advantage of this temperate climate at the 18-hole Chimneys golf course, set among beautiful rolling, wooded hills. The course prides itself on being one of the most challenging in the area, but if you are new to the sport, you can also take lessons at the Chimneys, making this a suitable location for all skills levels.
