Camping in Georgia



About Georgia Camping

With 63 state parks and historic sites, from the Appalachian Mountains to the Atlantic sea islands, more and more adventurers are picking Georgia for their outdoor expeditions. Anchored by the mass metropolis of Atlanta on the north end, and graced by the Southern charm of Savannah in the south, Georgia offers plenty of adventure in between, with some of the highest peaks, prettiest waterfalls, and the best shelling in the South. Grab your tent, your best broken-in boots, or the car-camping accoutrements – camping in Georgia is waiting for you!

The Chattahoochee Forest is a popular camping destination, but it can be hard to escape the hustle and bustle, especially at the Chattooga and Blue Ridge recreation areas. Luckily Three Forks Campground at the Appalachian Trail offers an escape from the hubbub of more popular sites. Enjoy multiple waterfalls, trout streams, and gnarled trees, all in an old-growth forest. There’s also access to several trails – the perfect home base to get some serious day hiking done.

Enamored by all of your options for camping in Georgia? We are too! With its stunning biodiversity (home to the greatest concentration of salamander species in the world), lush forests, and verdant bottomlands, it’s well-worth a trip. For a great taste of the beauty, try the Bear Creek Trail, with its adjacent campground. Winding through a beautiful stream valley, this trek takes you past the second-largest tree in Georgia, burbling waterfalls, and plenty of wildflowers for your 5.7 mile round-trip hike.

But if you’re looking for something different than the Chattahoochee area, check out the Silver Comet Trail, a short jaunt north of Atlanta – perfect for weekend warriors eager to get out into nature. Free and paved, at just over 61 miles long, the Silver Comet trail is built on abandoned rail lines. The path winds through residential areas and forests alike, where you’ll find everything from tunnels to trestles, bike rental shops to wheelchair access points. Find camping in Georgia along the way and get as close to the natural beauty as possible.

Whichever route you choose - mountains or flatlands, waterfalls or sea - you can be sure to find some of the best camping in Georgia off the beaten trail with The Dyrt!

Best Kept Out-Of-The-Way Camping Experience

My first reaction when arriving here?  What's with all of the long winding roads that seemingly lead to nowhere.  And oh, where are all the people?  Wow, was I in for a surprise!

This little gem is located just about 15 minutes from Interstate 95 and you'll see some of the pretties Georgia…

  • Look for this easy-to-find sign from the major roadway off Highway 95
  • After hours key code entry = awesome security!
  • One of the very recently updated shelters

Don't Judge This Book By Its Cover

Don’t let the dilapidated old white 2-story that greets you upon entry to this RV Park scare you off – once you get passed this rickety building that’s been condemned, the rest of the place is actually pretty dang nice (as far as RV parks go). 

Once inside the grounds, you’ll be driving on…

  • Just look for the big wheel (which unfortunately does not turn)
  • Here's the little campground office - here they sell ice, wood and a few other minor supplies
  • Here's what a standard campsite looks like (complete with Spanish Moss)

Great overnight stop

Park is made up of mostly permanent RVs and are packed in pretty tight. Very long FHU site for overnight stay at $35 can't be beat. Great roads to get here too.

Sites in back way too small

Staff was great as always however, the sites (in the back anyway) are way too small. Front canopy is over the next camper sanitation hose and hook up. See pics. And the neighbor in back can’t even open their canopy due to our slide out almost touching theirs. Only stopping over one night so it’s…

Great Campground, poor Wifi

We love this campground. The pull thru sites by the lake are excellent. We enjoyed all three pools. Wifi was unusable our entire stay. Fix the wifi and this is would be the our favorite spot.

Good place to camp

Good place to camp. Clean camp spaces and fire pits. Two cars per campsite. Easy access to the river. Great place for kayaking and fishing. Check out the local store for coffee and good biscuits.

Not up to the COE standards

Sad to have to write a bad review for this park, as we typically love COE campgrounds. Not sure what the issue was but when we arrived our site had not been cleaned. Several inches of dirt on the concrete pad, part of a ripped trash bag hanging from the lantern pole, nylon cord and aluminum foil in…

Loved this campground! We went during the Ellijay apple festival, so they were busy, but the campground was great! Great view of the lake and staff is so helpful and nice! Will definitely return to Diamond Lure campground.
