Coral Hospitality-GA, LLC today announced the completion of the first of a two-phase renovation project at Little Ocmulgee State Park & Lodge totaling $2.5 million.

Jones and opened in 1965 and is one of the best state park layouts in the Peach State. The second phase of renovations is scheduled to be completed by winter 2020 and valued at $2 million, upgrading the remaining lodge rooms with modern amenities and a refreshed design.
