The Standing Boy Creek State Park is a state park and recreation area in Columbus, Georgia. It is one of the newest units in the Georgia state parks system, only ordered to be created in January 2004.

Offering 1579 acres, the Standing Boy Creek State Park features Lake Oliver, a 2150 acre reservoir on the Chattahoochee River, south of Goat Rock Dam. The lake was created in 1959 by the Oliver Dam and Generating Plant under the Georgia Power. It was named after an executive of the company, James McCoy Oliver. It offers opportunities for boating and fishing.

Other activities that can be enjoyed at the park include swimming, camping, and hiking. It is most popular for hunting, though. However, hunters may need to follow specific rules and regulations.
