Whether you need to have fun, relax, get away, get together, or get exercise, Gilmer County is a great place for family fun. In addition to the more hearty, adventurous opportunities for recreation, we also offer laid-back locations, like a nine-hole golf course, shaded getaways, and sunny lakes. In addition, cultural and athletic events at Glenville State College are always open to the public.
