Gardens View Course at Callaway Gardens Resort Ratings & Reviews
17 days ago
A nice getaway for a day or two.
My girlfriend and I went for an overnight visit and had a very nice time. The grounds were lovely, especially with the azaleas in bloom.
The butterfly center was really nice (and, thankfully, free with garden admission) but I'd recommend going in the morning as it's VERY hot in the afternoon.
There's also a free birds of prey show three times a day.
The highlight of our visit was bike riding. There are paved trails throughout the resort with easy to mildly difficult terrain. Take your own bike or rent one there. ($26 for four hours.)
We would have liked to try the zip line course, but the $35 per person fee was prohibitive.

I have been going to Callaway Resort and Gardens for over 50 years. This last visit included one night in the Inn, and two days in the park. It is off season right now. And we knew this before we decided to visit.
Overall the visit was good. The Inn was clean and very nice. The Gardens were enjoyable, but it needs some prep work before season opener.
I was very saddened to see that the train is no longer in the park. The train track has been removed and the train platform was turned into cabanas for rent. Sad. It appears that the river boat is also gone, and the fountain. One of the favorites, was not working.
While the park needs work, and we saw few employees working or available to offer aid (we found a toilet over flowing and turned the water off because there was no one available for repair. But the price, while reasonable for the in-season, top notch park is high, but fair, was very high considering these issues.
I continue to love the Gardens, but I hope we see improvements to bring the park up to expected standards.

Top notch for nature lovers 5 to 105. Paved trails between items of interest. Birds of Prey exhibit is an excellent display of raptors up close and in flight. With Christmas upon us, check out the drive through light display. Also available, the open air tram that takes you through the light exhibit. Bring warm blankets as they are very nice to keep your legs warm. Sorta like a hay ride without the mess. Expensive though... $24 per person. But there is plenty to do in main building. Many vendors selling peanut butter to hand sewn crafts. Don't forget to taste the hot coco!
