About This Campground

State Park

Known as “Little Georgia”, Providence Canyon is a modern-day example of what happens when mankind attempts to change the land they live on. Thanks to years of poor agricultural practices, as well as erosion from the Coastal Plains, massive gullies as deep as 150 feet can be found all throughout the…

A unique sight!

This park is beautiful and completely unexpected given its surroundings. Definitely something unique and worth seeing. The camping is rather rustic, and as another user noted, the road to pioneer 1 and 2 and not well maintained. The road to pioneer 3 looked like it might be easier for a smaller…

Breathtakingly Beautiful

Wow. This park is phenomenal! It is so beautiful. The canyons are breathtaking and the staff is so helpful and friendly!

Pets are welcomed and many people had theirs. So if your pet doesn’t like crowds or other pets it would be best to leave them home. Also it’s a decent walk very steep and at…

Camping was great

We stayed at the Pioneer 1 campsite. The entrance is about a half mile down a winding curvy road from the main entrance and comes out of nowhere. This is a message to anyone considering renting from Pioneer Site 1 or 2: the road is not paved and meant for a vehicle with 4 wheel drive. If you have…

About This Campground

Known as “Little Georgia”, Providence Canyon is a modern-day example of what happens when mankind attempts to change the land they live on. Thanks to years of poor agricultural practices, as well as erosion from the Coastal Plains, massive gullies as deep as 150 feet can be found all throughout the park. While this lack of foresight has irrevocably changed the land, it has also created some of the most beautiful photo opportunities in the State.

As a result of the geographic changes, the canyon’s soil proudly showcase its scars, colored in vibrant hues of pink, orange, red, yellow, and purple. This makes the area a prime destination spot for Photographers and scenic enthusiasts. Moreover, the area is home to the Plumleaf Azalea, a rare type of wildflower that blooms in late July/early August, when most other Azaleas have already started to wain in vibrance.

When it comes to recreation, there’s a wide range of outdoor activities to partake in. Thanks to the local geography, Providence Canyon is perfect for hiking, fishing, mountain biking, climbing, and so much more. One of the more interesting activities to consider is the Canyon Climber Club. This club challenges participants to brave three local features that showcase extreme outdoor adventure. Brave the depths of the Canyon, overcome the staircase of Cloudland Canyon, and trek across the swinging bridge of Tallulah Gorge. Those who complete all three challenges win extreme bragging rights, plus a sweet certificate to show off.

Camping here is difficult, simply because there aren't many sites available. There are 3 pioneer-style campsites with regular amenities, and 6 backcountry campsites which require you to be okay with a little less comfort. While there is a visitors center, a concession stand, and restrooms available, not every campsite is close by. Therefore, it’s important to be sure you plan your trip in advance to meet your needs and circumstances. Pioneer campsites (close to bathrooms and the visitor center) range from $40-$80 a night, while the backcountry options start at just $10/night.
