Convenient rest stop or long term stay

This park is located  just south of Atlanta an d is a great place to overnight on your way to a destination, or for more long term stay for out of town workers. Lots of shopping and good restaurants nearby

Great staff,  grounds very and clean neatly kept.  A little snug getting in and out with a big rig, but absolutely doable.

A great place to pull off of I75 and get out of the traffic . Sleep in and then take off when traffic is not so heavy!!

When you must go to the beach! Isn’t that always?

Planned a trip with friends to Tybee Island Georgia, just outside Savannah.  It rained the first couple of days we were there, but still were Able to get out and enjoy the sites sounds and food.  Although sites are close together, the park offers , RV sites with full hook up, cabins, pool, beach access and laundry facilities.  Golf cart approved for whole island. The RV park is close to everything!

Just follow the signs to the path that takes you right to the beach. Spend a day basking in the sun, then come back to your RV to settle in for the evening.  There are really good seafood restaurants nearby, an ice cream shop you could walk to  and a cool little diner on the far end of the island that serves marvelous breakfast.  Shopping at stores showcasing local crafters near by.

If it’s beach and sun you want, look no further.  Nice, helpful staff make your stay very pleasant.

Unexpected

We had an emergency work issue while traveling and had to get somewhere to get online.  The issue had been going in for a while and we had been stopped a truck stop for 3 hours. I started looking to see if there was an RV park nearby and found Victoria Bryant State Park just 10 miles away.  We called and there were vacancies.  We GPS’d our way over, and I. The middle of farmland was the entrance to the park. We pulled in and set up in about 5 minutes,  got online and proceeded to work most of the night.  

In the morning we discovered how lovely our surroundings were.  Our site was on a ridge and was wooded all around.  We were across from a comfort station, a really nice pavilion and play area.  Lots of families were coming in for the weekend.  There is hiking and fishing in a small lake. Places to ride bikes.  Day campers are welcome.  The park was clean and the personnel was friendly and helpful.  We had to leave that morning, but are looking forward to going back and discovering more about it.  What a happy surprise Victoria Bryant State Park was.

Water all around

Water water everywhere.  On the Georgia side Tugaloo State Park is Located on Lake Hartwell on the Georgia/South Carolina state line.  

Getting to the campsites is pretty tight but once you are parked, it is just beautiful overlooking the lake.  Lots of fun for families who enjoy the water.  Also you can see fishing boats zoom to their fishing location at night.  Peaceful and calming rest from the corporate life!

The people are so friendly and the and the amenities are many.  The RV park and facilities are well kept and clean.  You will love the hilly terrain of the park.  The tree-covered sites have picnic tables and fire rings . We have been multiple times and looking forward to going back. Many photograph worthy sites.

They don’t call it Cloudland for nothin’!

The drive is one of a lovely country side, but about 10 miles from the park, you notice you are going up… up…  with an occasional clear peep at the beautiful farm valley below.  Sometimes those same views are veiled with clouds.  

Upon entering the park you check in with friendly, helpful staff. The store is filled with items you may have forgotten, various treats and branded goods.

The wooded campsites are roomy and comfortable with picnic tables and fire rings.  Our campsite had a little unmarked path that went down to a little stream with a foot-bridge and intersected with a larger path.  Close by the campsite are various well marked trailheads.  

If you want to take in the beauty nearby, there are various levels of hiking available, from easy to very challenging.  If it is a more easygoing level you seek, just head over to the Nature Center in the middle of the park.  Right behind it the view that is stunning.  When they say “pictures  don’t do it justice” they mean it.  You see a 800-900 ft gorge and a multilevel waterfall.  You must just sit and listen to the waterfall and feel the cool breeze.  If looking for a challenge, take one of the several trails to see waterfalls or overlooks.  There is no lack of photo opportunities.

The park is well kept.  The comfort stations were a bit disappointing and not maintained well, though this could have been an anomaly.

Whether you want to walk in, drive in, tent camp, RV, cabin or yurt, your adventure sensibilities will not be hurt!!
