Wilkes County Activities - Deer & Wild Hog Hunting, Fishing,
Off-Roading, Museums, Plantations, Resthaven Cemetery,
Ghost Tours, Golf & Antique Cars...

There is an amazing selection of interesting activities to choose from in Wilkes County or nearby. You are sure to find the perfect activities to create a memorable event that your people will be talking about for years. Here is a sample. Some of these activities might appeal to men more than women but no worries. If a group of women want to tour our armory, go off-roading or wild hog hunting, they can!  Here are a few ideas:


Security Code


  • Activities at Clark Hill Lake including pontoon boat rides to tour the lake, fishing or dinner cruises on a houseboat or cruiser. (Limited to crowd size)


  • National Guard Armory-All kinds of tanks, trucks and other guy stuff. Very friendly fellows will give you a tour.

  • Wilkes County Airport-A vital part of our community that recently underwent an expansion and is on track to expand to 5000 feet in the not too distant future. This airport can handle any business jet. It is a full service airport with a jet porter. The manager is a friendly and knowledgeable fellow and I can arrange a tour.


  • Off roading with your choice of dirt bikes, ATV’s, side x sides, jeeps, 4 x 4’s, rock crawlers. Wow! Your guys will end up dirty, but have a blast!


  • Washington has 3 museums. We can arrange a riding tour of historical sites such as the Chennault Plantation or whatever you are interested in or tour any or all the museums. One of our local historians also can do a fascinating walking tour.


  • Plantation Tour-A plantation tour that can show you how life was in Wilkes County 200 years ago.


  • Many famous people are buried in Resthaven Cemetery. An interpretive tour of this historic cemetery can be arranged. Every October we have a program put on by the Washington Historical Society called Resthaven Revisited. This evening the dead rise up out of their crypts to tell the attendees about their contributions.


  • Ghost Tour-Walking or riding. It is said that all old houses are haunted. This is the case in Washington what with all the antebellum and Victorian homes. If our resident ghost expert is in town, I can offer a ghost tour.


  • Goodness Grows Nursery Lexington-This plant nursery is a must see for the landscape gardener. Goodness Grows is a famous nursery that has developed some of their own cultivars and touring the grounds is a wonderful experience. I suggest a box lunch on their grounds before or after the tour.


  • Wild hog hunting. Wild hogs are a big agricultural problem is Georgia. If you are interested in Wild hog hunting a hunt can be arranged with a local guide. Your own gun and hunting license are required.


  • Car Collector’s Tour-Washington has a Memory Cruisers Club and several citizens have extensive antique and custom car collections.
