Mistletoe State Park is a 1,972 acre (7.98 km²) Georgia state park located northwest of Augusta, Georgia on the southern shore of Lake Strom Thurmond. The park gets its name from Mistletoe Corners,[1] a local area where people gather to pick mistletoe during the winter holiday season. Its strategic location on the lake makes it one of the finest bass fishing spots in the nation. The park also offers public beaches and 8 miles of nature trails.
