Outfitter Mill Pond Kayak, LLC conducts 2-1/2 hour guided tours on cypress-filled Watson Mill pond at George L. Smith State Park in Twin City, from March 1 through November 30. With enough kayaks, paddles, and PFD vests for groups of up to twenty people, it’s a great activity for church groups, scouts, schools, birthday parties, reunions, or company picnics. They also cater to smaller groups of family and friends, including those staying at the park’s campground or cottages.
Owner-operator Wesley Hendley’s fleet of kayaks is tailored to suit all age groups, and this calm black water is the ideal venue for folks new to kayaking. These are not the whitewater style kayaks you may have seen before. These wide, flat-bottomed boats are built for stability and relaxation, with roomy cockpits, comfortable seats, even cup holders! Very small kids can sit on a cushion on the floor and tag along at no extra charge. Bigger kids who aren’t yet old enough to paddle on their own, or seniors who may not be physically able can sit in the front seat of a tandem kayak and just enjoy the view, letting the paddler in the back seat do all the work. If needed, your tour guide is always ready and willing to double as your boat motor as well!

Kayak Touring on Watson Mill Pond
Watson Mill Pond at George L. Smith State Park in Twin City in east central Georgia is ideal for touring by kayak. The three-mile long pond contains ten miles of paddling trails waiting to be explored. A photographer’s dream, every shot has beautiful scenery in the background and the paddlers have broad smiles on their faces. The colors of the cypress trees reflected on the mirror-like water make a great palette for shutterbugs in the fall. The historic covered bridge, circa 1880, is also quite photogenic. Other photo ops include a beaver lodge and fields of white water lilies. There’s a heron rookery that is active in the spring, as well as an osprey nest and many other species of waterfowl.
