Favorite Campgrounds In Georgia

High Falls State ParkWhat is your favorite campground in Georgia?  I get asked this question a lot.  Of course, this is like asking me which of my children I love the most.  I cannot choose just one.  I enjoy different campgrounds for different reasons.   And so, I will share with you my three favorite campgrounds in Georgia.

Top 3 Campgrounds in Georgia

Cloudland Canyon State Park-  I love Cloudland Canyon for its beautiful mountains and waterfalls.  It is a gorgeous park with spectacular scenery.  It is not very far from Chattanooga, Tennessee which has wonderful family friendly venues including a children’s museum, aquarium, Rock City and Ruby Falls.

F.D. Roosevelt State Park- I love F.D. Roosevelt State Park for its rich history, beautiful scenery and kid-friendly activities.  The staff go the extra mile to present quality activities for the kids. Oh, and did I mention that they offer horseback riding?

High Falls State Park- For me, camping at High Falls State Park is like hanging out with an old friend- unpretentous, easy and familiar.  As soon as we drive through the gates, relaxation washes over me like the sunshine peeping through the pine trees.  The fishing is good.  You can fish on the river or on the lake.  Fireflies beckon to us at dusk.  And we always have fun around the campfire.  It is so easy and relaxing.  With three kids, you really learn to appreciate easy and relaxing.

What about you?  What are your top 3 campsites?

I’ll see ya by the campfire.

  1. Honestly speaking, I haven’t been to a campground since my parents are so strict about it. I would love to go there with my friends and have some fun but I would also love to spend my vacation on those campsites with my parents. Those seem to be some great places to chill out. Happy Camping!

      You should try camping during the spring or summer and maybe go up a notch to a more “comfort camping” setting. Your family may enjoy camping in a yurt or a cabin. The main thing is to spend plenty of time doing outdoors activities and around the campfire– to give your son and husband their camping fix. But with the yurt/cabin close by, you will always have a place to go to relax. Also, you should research campgrounds to see what activities they offer that YOU would enjoy. Once you find an activity either in the park or nearby that you enjoy, it will be easy to find activities your son and husband enjoy because they are already into it.

      Let’s face it, not everyone is going to love to camp. But if the rest of the family likes to camp, maybe ya’ll can find a camping adventure in the middle that all of you will enjoy. And then on a different weekend, get them to participate in an activity you enjoy. It’s all about compromise.

  3. I’m still in the state of mind of wondering where to ski this weekend… :D

    There’s much great camping in Alberta it’s next to impossible to choose… I’ll go with three where I’m hoping to camp this year. Dinosaur Provincial Park, Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park and Lake O’Hara in Yoho National Park.

    See you at the campfire!

  4. Recent discovery – Black Rock Mtn State Park – many quite large sites allow simultaneous east/west views on ridgeline so you can have awesome sunrise & sunset views. Staff was incredibly helpfu.l Comfort stations large, clean & surprisingly nice (not the Ritz, mind you). Variety of trails & fishing lake & overlooks. Place was hit during April ’11 tornadoes, so supporting park is important.

    BR is just a hop skip away from Tallulah – go here for the day, but do not stay at that atrocity of a campground.

    • Campy Mom says:

      That is so interesting that you brought up Black Rock Mtn State Park. I was just researching that park a couple days ago for an upcoming camping trip. Thanks for the recommendation. It certainly helps me make my decision.

  5. Oh man Tiffany, that’s like asking us to pick a favorite child! I will say I was surprised how much I liked Kolomoki Mounds, Skidaway, and Mistletoe. I have a soft spot for Amicalola though. And of course Cloudland is epic. Wait, that’s way more than three…oops!

    First on our list has got to be Elijah Clark in Lincolnton. It is an absolute pleasure to camp on the lake (altho the last time we were there, the lake level was WAY down). Always fun to step out of the tent in the morning…grab a cup of coffee and our fishing poles (in that order) and kills some worms or crikets. We feel like we have plenty of space no matter which campsite we end up on. And last time we were there, we had two Mommy ducks pass in parade with their babies in the morning and evening.
    Second on the list is Ft. McAlister in Richmond Hill. If for no other reason than finding lots of interesting facts about the Civil War, Ft McAlister is a great place to camp. It’s worth it to explore the old fort…grab a Ranger and get them talking!
    Third would have to be George Smith in Twin City. Talk about being away from it all! Backroads forever to get there. And the fishing wasn’t too bad either!
    Also love Magnolia Springs in Millen and Skidaway here in Savannah. Unfortunately, the aquarium at Magnolia Springs is closed. It was a fun place to visit. Best thing about Skidaway? No hills to bike up and down. Worst? The sand fleas are terrible…bring lots of bug spray!

  7. We just camped at Black Rock Mountain last weekend and LOVED it! It was gorgeous. I highly recommend it!

  8. Just found your website, Love it! We try to go camping at least 2 times a season. Our fav was Yurts at Ft. Yargo, but since we moved to Ball Ground we now have been camping at Doll Mnt. Like it there because we can bring the dog and we are back to tent camping. You have to drive to the beach area or can hike down the hill past camp sites to get to it, which is what we do. Fun times with Family! Going again this weekend!! :) We leave all electronics at home, funny how the kids are so different when they have to be creative all on their own ;)

  9. Just started camping with my son and Cloudland was our first. Sad to say Mom not really in to roughing it but Scott had a great time even though it rained a lot. Scenery was fantastic and with frisbee golf and a tennis court we could still engage his sports entusiasm while in a park setting!

    • Well, you can always “rough it” in a cabin if it helps ease your wife into the camping scene. And there’s so many great attractions just down the road in Chattanooga for mom. Aren’t they leading cave tours at Cloudland Canyon, now? May be a little too outdoorsy for mom, but might be a nice activity for you and your son.
