Located just outside of Summerville, Georgia, a little over an hour from Chattanooga, Tennessee, lies James H. Floyd State Park. Better known to locals as “Sloppy Floyd,” this state park has been a favorite with my family for years. When everyone in my family was in better health and up to traveling, we had frequent picnics at Sloppy Floyd with the whole extended family. It’s hard to get my grandparents anywhere these days, so while that’s not an option anymore, it’s still one of our favorite places for fishing, paddle-boating, and picnicking.
Justin has been on a fishing frenzy lately, and the spots around our house aren’t much fun for a spectator. That means if he wants me to go with him, he has to get creative. With a few extra free hours on Good Friday, we seized the chance for a tiny day trip and headed out to Sloppy Floyd with a small picnic and Justin’s fishing poles in tow.
