Lake Winnepesaukah is located in Rossville, Georgia near Chattanooga Tennessee. Affectionately known as Lake Winnie by the locals, this park has
entertained multiple Southern
generations since opening to the public in 1927.
During the Winter of 1926-1927, the park's founder built the
"Boat Chute," a unique splash ride that still operates today.
People came from Chattanooga, Lookout Mountain, and all over
North Georgia to chill in the cool spring water on hot Summer
days. The Richardson Tribe enjoys hearing stories from Rebecca's
Mom about visiting the park on a date with her father over 60
As the years passed, rides were added, improved, expanded, and
updated. A mini-scale train track was built around the park's
perimeter, and a nice long antique car track was also added.
Eventually, a nice wooden roller coaster was added. The
legendary Cannon-Ball roller coaster is named for the Civil War
relics often found in is area around the turn of the century.
Chickamauga, one of the most notorious Civil War battlefields,
is located very near here, and many skirmishes took place all
around North Georgia and Chattanooga.
Today, there are a good many rides for a wide variety of ages.
We loved bringing the kids when they were very young, because
there are lots of kiddy rides. 2011 is really the first year
that we've been able to enjoy the big kid rides, and there are
more than I thought.
Additionally, the park has an
intimate outdoor amphitheater that
features numerous concerts
throughout the Summer season. The
park is also host to many parties
and reunions. Several large
pavilions can be rented, and you can
bring your own food. There is a
wonderful new play area and a very
nice miniature golf course if the
rides get too exciting.
you come to Lake Winnie expecting
Disney, you will be disappointed, or
not, depending on your perspective.
The rides aren't as "fantastic" as
Disney, sure, but you don't have to
stand in line for an hour either. If
you come to the park with an
appreciation of the history, you'll
overlook some of the faded paint. I
can guarantee you one thing, the
kids will love it, and isn't that
what it's all about?

design and is very informative. As I explored, I was pleased
to find educational resources for parents and teachers,
