My wife and I are on our way to Florida from Nashville. We are not in a hurry and stopped north of Atlanta for a couple of nights at Red Top Mountain State Park. It is a great park.
We arrived around 4:00 pm and the office was closed but we knew what our campsite number was in this park. The park was a little farther off I-75 than I thought it was but to be honest my wife made three reservation. What a huge surprise when we pulled up to the park. A dam and lake and a very clean area. Driving past this area we came to a playground which was very well kept. On a little farther was the campground. From what I saw each lot is a pull through and very, very spacious and clean. The trees had moss growing in them and there was a gentle breeze blowing.
I want to come back and spend more time here! This place is so inviting and peaceful.
Pleasant and large site’s
We love this state park park with its large wooded campsites, 375 acre lake and river for paddling & fishing, 7 miles of multi use trails for hiking & biking trails, playgrounds, and putt putt golf. Home to gopher turtles, alligators,deer and seasonal home to vultures and bald eagles makes wildlife spotting fun. The landscape runs the gamut from coastal plain to pine forest. Those visiting for the day may enjoy the catfish cabin restaurant just outside the park. Since the park is only 7 miles from 1-75 this can easily be a great overnight stop.
Reed Bingham is located on route 37 which is an Agro-tourism road. The route features vineyards, olive farms, boutique hotels, specialty shops, local produce, farms and two state parks….to name just a few places for you to visit. We also enjoyed biking to the Horse creek winery in Sparks, Ga just 7 miles away. (This winery is also a harvest host).

Campground- sites are large and graveled. Outer loop locations have more shade trees. Premium sites have sewer in addition to water/30/50AMP picnics tables,fire rings and some with grills too. There are no cabins.
The paddle in campground for 30 is pretty cool since it is its own island. There is also a nice group/pioneer camping and a couple of walk in tent sites that are on a little island with a bridge walkway.
There are rentals for bikes and paddling. The beach for swimming is more of a wading beach and since I have seen the alligators in this lake i do not recommend swimming anywhere else on your own.
Paddling/Fishing is fun on the 375 acre lake. The lake also connects to little river and it is a @ 3 hour leisurely up river paddle to Red Robin Boat ramp in Adel Georgia (aka Colquitt boat ramp) ->if you have a way to drop off and paddle downriver to Reed Bingham it would be more relaxing.
The 5k running/walking route for the annual Little River 5k is easy to follow in the park for your activity pleasure.
We stopped here enroute to an event and for a smaller State Park Reed Bingham was nice. There is a huge lake to play in and plenty of Fisher folk . The staff said there were alligators but we didn’t run across any. There were several intertwining trails which had some interesting fauna and wildlife. Cool kayak/canoe trail to check out too. The campground was about half full, with pull throughs and level sites available. Not much shade but with fall weather it was very comfortable. Lots of sand.
Well kept campground and facilities. Good place to walk short trails, biking, boating and fishing. There is a miniture golf and playground within sight of the campground. Good place to get together with family and friends.
Stayed in our RV several days over the course of a weekend. We were in the loop (1) that did not have sewer hookup but there was a dump station available for when we left. The newer Loop (2) has nicer bathrooms and showers and laundry as well as sites with sewer hookup. Some sites have more shade than others, we were at site 9 which was very shaded. Great kayaking available and rentals are available as well. Good hiking trails, too.
Nice facilities with clean bathrooms. Pull through site was very easy to set up and take down. Friendly staff were helpful and really knowledgeable.
This beautiful hidden gem is just a stone’s throw west of Adel, Georgia. Accessible off of Interstate 75, this State Park is worth visiting. Activities you can enjoy are camping, boating, fishing, kayaking, hiking, swimming, geocaching, and picnicking. The staff are wonderful and the campground is well kept. They have bike a bike rental shop at the campground along with firewood and other necessities. There’s a shower house that is availability to all campers. We absolutely love it here!! So close to home but far enough to get away:)
The camp staff was very friendly and helpful but the obnoxious camp post put a damper on our stay. I hope they fix this. there were not a lot trees but lots of trails nearby. Nice bathhouse.
One of the better State Parks in Georgia
