Backcountry Camping That's Nicely Balanced

One of my favorite campgrounds in Georgia is at Cloudland Canyon State Park. A small hike from the parking area, there's plenty of space in these woods for a quaint and quiet stay. Our backcountry campground had a fire pit and even a picnic table, and was nestled beside a babbling brook. We set up our tents, hung our hammocks and got cooking as soon as we arrived. The next morning, the sun's early rays could be seen from our tent opening, making for an epic start to the day. There are outhouses nearby and the visitor's center is only a few minutes' drive away if anyone in your camping party desires running water. A great balance! All the hikes around Cloudland are winners, and you can easily spend the weekend there.
