My camping style? I enjoy tent camping in Georgia State Parks.
Tent Camping in State Parks
With a family of 5 (from a toddler to a pre-teen), we love to get away from the hustle, bustle and stress of everyday life. Tent camping brings us back to simpler times. We trade in our Ipods and TVs for fishing poles and sunsets.
We enjoy tent camping, because nothing beats being lulled to sleep by the sounds of nature. And we feel proud that we can pitch a tent and cook over a campfire. It strengthens our children’s confidence, while giving them a sense of adventure.
But my adventure, as Mom, is getting us all to the campsite. That’s why I enjoy a campsite that can be reached the old fashioned way…by car. I like staying at a campsite with running water and a shower house nearby.
Some campers look down on campers who have these “luxuries,” but it’s your camping trip. It’s your vacation time from work and your quality time with your kids. Each family must choose their camping style- even if it is the camping style of the moment. Your camping style with young kids may change when they become teenagers.
We also enjoy yurt camping from time to time. We especially like to yurt camp in the winter.
Why We Love Camping in Georgia State Parks
- You know what you are going to get- clean, well-maintained campsites.
- Beautiful scenery and variety to choose from. Camp in the mountains, on the beach, in the forest, by the lake or on a river. Would you like to see Indian mounds or covered bridges? Yep- we have those.
- Lots of camping activities such as hiking, fishing, boating, archery, horseback riding, geocaching, swimming, caving and so much more. Visit the Georgia State Parks website for a complete list.
- The fishing’s good.
- Outdoor programs that are top-notch for free or a small fee. Join the Park Rangers for guided hikes, canoeing, and lots of kid friendly programs.
- Georgia State Parks are great places to kick back and relax.
