The Olympic-sized pool at Booker T. Washington opens for the season on the Saturday before Memorial Day. There is a diving board and a children's wading pool. Lifeguards are certified and are on duty during swimming hours. Groups are welcome.
A public boat ramp and boat dock are conveniently located and boaters enjoy countless hours of skiing, pleasure riding, paddling or fishing.
Booker T. Washington State Park has several interconnected trails that are open to hiking and mountain biking.
Booker T. Washington offers a single track bike trail on a 6-mile loop. The trail features some long uphill climbs with rewarding, but very fast, down hills. The trail also has some banked (off-camber) turns. This trail is challenging but still rated for all abilities.
Chickamauga Lake (35,000 acre impoundment), provides a beautiful setting for fishing.
Bald eagles, osprey, and many species of waterfowl are frequently seen at Booker T. Washington State Park.
