Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites
General Coffee State Park


General Coffee State Park is an ideal location for outdoor weddings. We offer a unique variety of settings in which you mix and match to create your perfect day. Our Amphitheatre is a rustic but lovely venue located next to our 4.5 acre pond. It’s adorned with a lovely covered bridge threaded with beautiful old fashioned roses and trumpet vines.  Our Heritage Farm with charming historic buildings is also a unique and wonderful place to exchange vows.

The Group Shelter is perfect for hosting receptions. The shelter is fully enclosed with a full kitchen and BBQ shelter located just behind. The shelter has tables and chairs for 180 guests and is heated and air conditioned with ceiling fans. Alcohol is permitted inside the shelter only.

Our cottages are great for getting ready for the big day. All are fully equipped with all of the comforts of home. Come stay the night before to have a convenient place to get ready or stay after for a honeymoon you’ll remember for a lifetime.

Perfect for honeymoons, the Burnham Cottage is a beautifully restored 19th century home featuring Queen Anne period furniture, stained glass windows, beautiful rice carved beds, hand stitched quilts, and antique chandeliers. There is also a romantic stone fireplace and a claw foot tub in the master bedroom. This historical structure will give you the pampering and privacy you need for you special day.
