JACKSON COUNTY PARKS AND RECREATION
HURRICANE SHOALS PARK
PAVILION RESERVATION PROCEDURES
No Pets are Allowed ------- No Alcohol is Allowed

  1. Reservations for the Park pavilions are made on a first come, first serve basis. Reservations for each calendar year will be taken beginning the first business day after the New Year's holiday. No reservations will be taken for the third weekend of September when the Art in the Park Festival is held.
  2. Reservations may be made in person at the Jackson County Parks and Recreation Department, located at 1801 County Farm Rd., Jefferson, or by mail. The fee must be paid before a reservation is confirmed. Reservations may be requested by phone, but those making the request must make payment within ten days of their request in order to have their reservation confirmed. Individuals who mail in a reservation will be confirmed only if there is space available at the time the request is processed by the recreation office. A written confirmation/receipt will be given to the reserving party.
  3. Reservations should be made for the date, hours and specific pavilion location. Pavilions can be reserved and used during normal Park hours only. Pavilions will be held for two hours past the reserved starting time. If the party does not show by this time, the pavilion will be released for other Park visitors to rent. Special reservation times may be made if requested and approved by the director of Parks and Recreation.
  4. Reservation Fees are non-refundable with the following exceptions:
    • If any party chooses to cancel a reservation two weeks in advance or more, half of the fee will be refunded.
    • A waiver of the reservation fee may be granted to community-wide civic groups and school groups. However, in the event that such a group has reservation but fails to show up on its scheduled date without two weeks advance notice, Jackson County reserves the right to bill the group the $60.00 to replace lost revenue. Principals must sign for school groups.

Reservations are made through the Jackson County Parks and Recreation department, located at 1801 County Farm Rd., Jefferson, Ga. 30549. For more information, call 706-367-6350. Mail reservations should be sent to the attention of Hurricane Shoals Park Reservations at the above address.

Often the more popular pavilions are reserved weeks, even months in advance. The set procedures are set forth to provide a higher degree of probability that all parties have an opportunity to use the pavilions. Reserving the pavilions and not using them potentially denies someone else the opportunity to use the pavilions or the pavilion of their choice. The fee is necessary to help cover some of the expense of Park and pavilion maintenance. All picnic table's are on a first come, first serve basis. We do not reserve picnic tables.
