The Charlie Elliott Visitors’ Center is the information “hub.” If you are not sure how to begin your outdoor adventures at CEWC-start here! Our staff will give you information on available activities at CEWC. If your outdoor interests include shooting sports, fishing, camping, hiking, biking, or even star-gazing, opportunities abound. Trail maps with regulations are available at the Visitor’s Center or online .
If you prefer learning about nature inside, you will love the museum housed within the visitor’s center! Come experience Charlie Elliott’s life through the collection of books, photographs, and other hunting and fishing memorabilia that he personally donated. The museum also houses a replica of Charlie’s actual den (where he wrote the last two books in his life), interactive wildlife exhibits, and a bird viewing alcove (with supplied binoculars), which overlooks a pond and a native plant garden. Children of all ages will enjoy playing nature detective with our museum Scavenger Hunt worksheet. Children can also pick up a Junior Ranger book, a program started in Georgia by Charlie himself.
Admission to the museum is free, and self-guided groups are welcome (please give advanced notice of groups of ten or more). Bring cash or your cards for our gift gallery too. You will love our reasonable prices on apparel, field guides, shooting gear and other unique gifts.
Hours: Normal operating hours are Monday-Saturday 9am-4:30pm. This building is closed on Sunday and all state holidays, but the CEWC property is always open. If you have any questions, please contact us at 770-784-3059.
