We made reservations here for the end of January thinking the weather wouldn't be so cold since we were close to Florida…how bad could it be? Well, record low temps told us how cold! Good thing we had heat, but outdoor cooking/eating was a challenge.
Other than the weather we LOVED this park. The campground hosts were AWESOME! To the point where they even raked the fine gravel into Zen like patterns. Everything was clean and very well maintained.
Located on the St. Mary River, this park has nice flat trails, good for biking too. Also plenty of bird watching.
Luckily, the government shut down ended while we were here so the ferries to Cumberland Island started back up. We spent a day there with a good friend as our guide and hiked over 7 miles. It was magical and a day I will never forget.
St. Marys is a very cute town with nice shops and good restaurants. We also enjoyed a day at Fernandina Beach walking on the beach, shopping and enjoying their micro brewery.
This Georgia State Park is in Gainesville on the Chattahoochee where it meets up with Lake Lanier. It was very easy to get to from the Atlanta area. We originally chose site 8 on the map but found it was pretty exposed and got direct sun all the time.
The park was very clean and still had a "new" feeling. We had a site with full hook ups. There wasn't WiFi, but the cell service was good. They did have cable. There is a beach with kayak rentals. We enjoyed a double kayak outing on the lake. We kept pretty close to shore and didn't have to fight rough water or strong currents.
Some campsites are on small hills that flatten out for your camper but then the terrain falls off. Biking trails weren't very flat. We also had to be aware of ants. Couldn't leave our dog's dish or bone out without being invaded.
Don't miss the Mountain Fresh Creamery almost 8 miles away for ice cream. Also not far from Helen, GA and wineries. Always great to spend time in the beautiful Georgia mountains.
This state park is close to a lot of things to do. Very close to Wormslow Historic Site and Savannah. The campground is really nice with large trees and lots of hanging moss. We were in site 61 that was very deep and secluded with our picnic table set back from the road. We had to park our camper crooked because of a tree and roots. The bath house was nice and clean. However the heat was broken on the hand blower in the women's side.
There are sites with full hook ups. There are also nice trails with one that leads to an observation deck. Also have bike rentals.
Took advantage of the 1/2 price camping in August offered by the Georgia State Park System since we had already camped in June & July. What a beautiful campground. Lots of trees and 2 streams running through the sites on both sides. Our site was level with plenty of room on gravel to spread out our floor mat.
Beautiful hiking to waterfall and around the lake. There is a beach for swimming and paddle boats for rent. We also enjoyed a day trip visiting wineries in the area and having breakfast in Blairsville. If coming north on 129, there is a sharp hairpin turn into the main entrance of the park.
We stayed here 1 night driving through, but really enjoyed our time. We were in site 50 in the trees. It appeared most of the other sites were out in the open and close together. Our site didn't have a water hook-up. But we filled our fresh water tank at the shower house. We hiked to the falls and tunnel. Next time we'll bring a flashlight and go all the way through the tunnel.
Close to Madison, IN. We ate dinner at Shipley's Tavern and had really great burgers. This was a fun stop we want to come back to.
The park at Swains Lake is really nice. There is lake access to fish, playgrounds for the kids, and a nice pavilion. The campground sites are pretty close together. It's a nice place to camp during the week, but it did get really crowded on summer weekends. I will say the shower house is GREAT! Individual showers with locking doors for complete privacy.
The location is great to day trip around the area. We enjoyed a day in Kalamazoo. Jackson isn't far with major grocery stores and shopping.
We stopped here passing through for 1 night. My impression was that the camping area was a basic field with not much privacy between sites. It's good we had a 50' hose because the water hook-up was with other faucets between a few sites. Not with the electrical hook-up as we were used to seeing.
I will admit my review is tainted because we were here in July and it was HOT! The saving grace was the big tree in our campsite (116) and the ability to float in the water. Our site was in a cove with limited views of the lake. Much of the camping is pretty open with the ability to see your neighbors.
This is a wonderful, scenic campground on beautiful Lake Allatoona. The sites are color coded depending on size and there is even a yurt to rent. We went swimming and hiking. Close to Cartersville to enjoy great restaurants and shopping.
This was a fun campground enjoyed with others for the weekend. They have a lake with john boat rentals along with mini golf. There are signs posted to watch for gators. Omaha Brewery is only 5 miles away.
This was our 1st time out with our new camper. We choose it because it was close to the dealer. I was inexperienced in selecting camp sites and we were in the middle of everything. Site 24 isn't very private. But the hiking was great and scenery was beautiful. They don't call it Fort Mountain for nothing - there was quite a drive uphill to get here.
