Bartow County’s Gatewood Park

Bartow County’s Gatewood Park is a lovely spot for picnics with your family of just about any size.

Pitch a tent for a night or pick one of the 60 campsites where you can roll in and enjoy water, electricity, a picnic table and a concrete pad.  Home away from home!

Gatewood Park is special.  So many recreation areas don’t love your dog as much as you do.  At Gatewood, dogs are welcomed, as long as their shots are current and you keep them on a leash no longer than six feet.  That way, you and Fido can have fun without intruding on folks who love cats more than dogs.  You know who you are!

Looking for a quiet, convenient place for a group picnic?  Choose from either of the two pavilions available for rent.
