Barrow County is teeming with opportunities for both active and passive recreation. A long list of fantastic programs and services, along with modern recreation facilities, are afforded through such local organizations as the Barrow County Leisure Services Department and the Winder-Barrow Brad Akins YMCA.


Those who revel in outdoor activities regularly visit Fort Yargo State Park, a 1,816-acre park located just one mile south of downtown Winder. The extensive site offers mountain biking and hiking on 18 miles of trails; a 260-acre lake for swimming, fishing and boating; opportunities for camping and picnicking; two tennis courts; a new, challenging 18-hole disc golf course; and a camp designed for children enduring serious illnesses and various life challenges.

Golfers of all skill levels enjoy a day on the greens at one of several local courses. The Georgia Club in historic Statham, the Legends at Chateau Elan in Braselton, the Woodlands Course and Chateau Course at Chateau Elan, the Chimneys Golf Course in Winder, and Pine Hills Golf Club in Winder are top choices for golf in Barrow County.
