Paulding County in Dallas, Georgia :: White Oak Park

If you find yourself West of Atlanta in Georgia (Paulding County), White Oak Park offers a few small lakes for fishing, a Disc Golf Course, exercise path, covered areas, and playgrounds.

We recommend you use this park in the colder months from mid-November through March. The downside of this park is it does have issues with vipers near the water areas, so you’ll need to keep your eyes open and watch for water moccasins in particular. We have sighted one before, so heed the warnings as they are justified.

Local photographers like to frequent this park for outdoor photo sessions for its picturesque scenery making it an excellent backdrop for portraits.

Jason got skunked on his fly rod, but Joshua had some success with a Grass Carp and a couple of small large-mouth bass!

So, if you ask my guys, they love this park, but as for me, I don’t find it friendly to families with smaller children. (Case in point, there is no bathroom near the large playground. You have to hike up the hill to use the restroom. When you have little ones, this can be a huge inconvience and remember — never send a child alone to a bathroom or anywhere out of eye sight!) Hate to be a Debbie Downer on this one, but until Paulding County can eradicate the vipers and put in a bathroom near the playground, this park won’t be one we return to often.
