Harris County Travels

Dowdell’s Knob

Dowdell's Knob, located in Harris County, the highest point on the Pine Mountain Range located in F.D. Roosevelt State Park.

Dowdell’s Knob is an overlook at F.D. Roosevelt State Park where President Franklin D. Roosevelt often spent time, even during WWII. Seems this spot was a favorite of his, and after visiting, I can see why. The view is spacious and breathtaking.

F.D. Roosevelt State Park is Georgia’s largest state park. I have yet to go further than Dowdell’s Knob because the visit was not planned. It was happenstance. But well worth the five dollar admission fee for vehicle parking to sit above the landscape with fresh air and relative solitude in the morning hours.

Dowdell’s Knob will officially be a must to visit in the Autumn months. Trees ablaze in different shades and hues will be beautiful. Cannot wait.
