Just a short hour's drive to the east takes locals to one of their favorite country retreats in Hard Labor Creek Park. Despite the name, leisure is more the order of the day, with day-trippers and overnight guests taking advantage of the park's four picnic shelters, 20 cottages, 46 trailer and RV sites, and miles of nature, hiking, and equestrian trails. A small boating lake is on hand for water sports and fishing, plus a fishing stream and golf course for more casual outdoor enthusiasts.
Spread across 6,400 acres (26 square kilometers), the Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center offers a wide range of activities. Visitors can explore the scenic landscape or enjoy activities like hunting, fishing, horseback riding and so forth. The on-site Conference Center and Banquet Hall can be rented for private and corporate events.
