West Palisades—Paces Mill

A shaded picnic area with ten concrete tables and as many grills is located next to the boat ramp at the Paces Mill section of the Palisades Unit at Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. Not all of the grills are in good shape, and while some are right next to a table, others are out on their own—perhaps a table once sat nearby and has since been removed due to damage. A restroom building is also on the premises. The entire area is serviced by a very large parking area.
