Oakfuskee Conservation Center, located on a picturesque point of land with breathtaking views of West Point Lake and Pyne Road Park’s majestic forests, will be opening its doors to the public in November 2023.  The multi-use, two-story facility is near LaGrange, Ga., an hour south of Atlanta.  Oakfuskee Conservation Center is committed to environmental stewardship and will be one of the most impressive event spaces in the Southeast for weddings, corporate functions, celebrations, family reunions, fishing tournaments, outdoor events and more.  The 25,000-square-foot facility will host events of all sizes and can accommodate up to 400 guests.

Oakfuskee Conservation Center includes a grand foyer with stunning fireplace, veranda, indoor banquet area, outdoor covered banquet area, outdoor pavilion, downstairs patio, brides’ room, grooms’ room, catering kitchen, offices, new service roads, sidewalks and nature trails.   The conservation center will also be the new home for Chattahoochee Riverkeeper. Additional plans for the construction of an outdoor amphitheater to host sustainable food festivals and concerts, a wildlife viewing deck and construction of a new dock are also underway.

Hiking, biking, horseback riding and kayaking will ignite and inspire visitors to revel in nature’s splendor. Birdwatching stations will also be scattered throughout, allowing guests to observe a wide variety of avian species in their natural habitat. And for those looking for a bit of friendly competition, there is a disc golf course.

Patrick Crews, the chairman of the Troup County Board of Commissioners, says the new event facility will be the first of its kind in the area, and he credits state and local organizations for partially funding the facility.   “We are extremely honored by the grant from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and Callaway Foundation that made this project possible.”

Oakfuskee’s new branding was created by Atomic Brand Energy and focuses on the Center’s commitment to excellence, heritage, conservation and community.   The new logo is nicknamed ‘The Special Tree’ and evokes a feeling of being surrounded by nature.
