Nice hiking areas, clean sites and close to Atlanta.

Great State Park only 1.5 hours from Atlanta. We stayed in site 502 which was a good pull through spot. We noticed that most of the sites are not super private- it would be great if there were some low shrubbery in between sites (lots of very nice mature trees but not much down low to provide privacy). All areas were well taken care of and very clean (including the restrooms).  We really appreciated that each camping area Host had firewood to sell! Try and figure out where your campsite is PRIOR to going to the Park as there are two entrances and one entry is closer to campsites 1, 2, 3 and another entry is closer to campsites 4, 5, 6. The hiking trails were very nice.  We saw a good variety of birds including the very large Pileated Woodpecker. A group of white tailed deer also came very close to our campsite- one of the photos shows how nicely they blend into the woods!

  • Group of deer wandered along the edge of our campsite
  • Gorgeous mature trees
  • Easy hike near campsite "Delano Trail"
  • Fun Opossum artwork to stick your head in near Campsite 6
  • Lake Deleanor
  • Pileated woodpecker (one of several) at our campsite
  • Our 16 foot Caravel Airstream
  • More gorgeous trees
  • Campsite 502 was a good choice
