Trekking for the adventurous
If you are an adventurous but healthy-thinking type of person, a trek to the Turner Lake Park is the best option.
The Turner Lake Park features three miles of paved and unpaved walking trails around the lake, which is connected to downtown Covington by a boardwalk, a tunnel beneath the roundabout and bike lanes.
You can start your walk at the Cricket Frog Trail, a 15-mile rail trail running through central Newton County.
But if you get tired of walking, you can use the trail’s primitive sections, which are best suited for hiking and mountain biking.
Or you can enjoy the outdoors at the Lake Varner / Cornish Creek Reservoir, which offers a natural setting to relax and unwind. You can do fishing, picnic and reading while enjoying nature and watching wildlife.
Bring your family for a weekend camping at the 1,300-acre Bert Adams Boy Scout Camp where you will know how fun outdoor scouting is.
You can also go camping and swimming at the Factory Shoals Recreation Park, a beautiful nature park situated along the Alcovy River.
Aside from campers and swimmers, the park is also a perfect haven for picnickers, hikers, rafters and nature lovers.
Burge is a private hunting, shooting and family club which also operates a large organic farm.
But perhaps the most exciting adventure that you can do while in Covington is to join the Walk of Stars Tour, which starts off in the historic downtown district where you can have a personal photograph at the papers of your favorite television show.
More than 60 movies and television series were filmed in Covington/Newton County.
All these outdoor activities will certainly make your stay in Covington an exciting one.
