Directions and Observatory Etiquette:

HLCO is located within Hard Labor Creek State Park on Fairplay Road, north of the golf course and lake, on the opposite side of the road.  There will be reflective signs to make the entrance to the observatory.  If you would like to use GPS use the following coordinates:

  • Latitude: 33 40 19.7
  • Longitude: W 83 35 46.0

Do not park along the highway in the park.  There is ample parking at the observatory itself and along the dirt road leading to it.  Please be courteous and turn off your headlights as you enter the observatory so that you do not blind other visitors.
