Rockdale County Information

Welcome to Rockdale County

Since Rockdale County is the second smallest county in Georgia, it has a nice small community atmosphere while being only 24 miles away from Atlanta. The county is ideal for raising a family because the government is dedicated to providing a safe and wholesome environment. Many recreational activities draw in residents and visitors. The Georgia International Horse Park is in Conyers, and the 1996 Olympic Equestrian events were held there. The Smyrna Campground is a great place for family fun and old-fashioned camp meetings. Rockdale County is an excellent place to settle down because of all it has to offer, and because of the close proximity to Atlanta for commuting or recreation.
