The Georgia Department of Natural Resources will soon conduct scheduled repairs and maintenance on the dam at High Falls State Park.The agency will begin lowering the water by approximately five feet, and work is expected to last up to eight weeks. The state park will remain open during repairs. Residents around High Falls Lake are encouraged to either remove or secure their boats, taking care to not leave them tied too closely to docks. Located northeast of Barnesville, High Falls State Park is named for tumbling cascades on the Towaliga River. Overnight visitors can choose from a spacious campground or yurts, which are like canvas and wood tents. Visitors can hike along the river’s edge and through forest to the remains of a hydroelectric power plant foundation. The park’s 650-acre lake is a popular spot for hybrid and white bass fishing.
