to brush up on your Orienteering on your own time? Or maybe
you need a practice course for a group you're coaching?
GAOC offers permanent orienteering courses
at Sweetwater Creek State Park, Panola Mountain State Park, and Red Top Mountain State Park,
so you can Orienteer any time!
Simply call the Park and ask for information
about the Georgia Orienteering Club permanent course. They'll
tell you what the nominal fee is and if they have a ready
supply of maps.
Permanent Courses use permanent
markers to identify the control points. When you purchase a
map, you'll receive the course, clues, and instructions for
completing the course.
For contact information and directions to
Georgia Parks, visit
State Parks and Historic Site website.
The permanent course at Panola Mountain State Park is now available in the park office. The orienteering at Panola is by permit only, so go by the park office to get permission and pickup you map, $5 for the package. The office is open every day except Tuesday and Wednesday from 08:30 – 17:00.
Our website directions are to the Alexander Lake map, but the office is out on GA Hwy 155, 1/10 of a mile from the Alexanders Lake Road turnoff. Again, you must get permission at the office to orienteer.
A permanent course is also available at Mistletoe State Park. Please contact Bill Cheatum at 706-247-5031
for information about using the Mistletoe State Park permanent course.
