Barrow County

Celebrate your leisure time in a community steeped in tradition. Located strategically between Athens and Atlanta, you can enjoy the best of both worlds without the traffic, crime and congestion. Barrow County affords many leisure opportunities for enjoying "family time" together.

One of the most visited parks in the state of Georgia is located in Winder. Fort Yargo State Park is a 1,850-acre complex where the whole family can enjoy camping, fishing, swimming, miniature golf, or just a hike through the woods. Built around an old Fort established by the white settlers back in 1792, the park offers a boundless array of outdoor activities.

For a trip out of the country, you need not go any further than Chateau Elan Winery for an unusual escape from the daily grind. Chateau Elan Winery is located just North of Winder on Interstate 85 in Barrow County and features four-star accommodations and dining, world-class golf, a tennis complex and equestrian center.

Aside from these recreational activities, the county offers organized league play in soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, tennis and other sports.
