Other Recreation

Troup County is a mecca for a wide-variety of recreational activities. Residents participate in everything from birding to mining and everything in-between.


The Southern Rivers Birding Trail winds through the West Point Dam area. Bird watchers from all over the nation flocked to West Point Dam during the winter of 2010 to catch an unheard of glimpse of an ivory gull. Don’t be surprised to spot an American Bald Eagle or an osprey overhead, searching for food, or hear the call of a loon.



Cyclists are drawn to the back road opportunities available on the Chattahoochee-Flint Heritage Highway. Bike routes of varying lengths and challenges are found in Troup County.


Cast a line into one of the hottest fishing lakes in the nation. Anglers are delighted with all the lake’s bounty – including largemouth bass, crappie and stripers. The lake has many public accesses and ramps and two marinas.
