Equally large Wheeler Lake and Wheeler State Park are less than an hour’s drive west.
William B. Bankhead National Forest, a short drive south, is a huge area, offering hiking trails, historical sites, a shooting range, and camping facilities. Trail-heads at Bankhead allow access to the famous Appalachian Trail.
