  •  Book Early

Speaking of pros, booking early is the golden ticket! I mean, the camping fever hit Georgia in the ’70s, and it’s been non-stop since. If you want prime spots with top-notch facilities, snag them before the spring and summer rush.

  • Check Out Georgia’s Parks

The state of Georgia is blessed with a seemingly endless number of forests, lakes, rivers, and streams. Create a home base in one of the state’s well-serviced sites or travel around the state checking out the varied scenery and wilderness that Georgia has to offer.

  • Try Camping When It’s Cooler

Are summer camping crowds cramping your style? Here’s a secret—fall and winter camping! You beat the crowds and can even sneak in some wicked whitewater adventures like our Chattooga trips till October. That’s a sweet bonus you won’t find everywhere

  • Cool Parks to Visit

Consider adding Georgia State Park and River State Park to your itinerary. While everyone can build their own camping adventure, these two parks are definitely worth checking out.  You’ve got your pick—pristine nature, modern comforts, it’s all there.

  • Pack Light if You Want to Hike

If you’re up for hiking, pack light! A compact tent and just the essentials are all you need to conquer those trails and hit up some awesome campsites along the way. There are several hiking trails in Georgia that join many great campsites, making it easy to hike and tent your way across the state. 

  •  Enjoy the Water

Georgia has the benefit of being a coastal state that also includes beaches, farmland, forests, and mountains. Enjoy lounging at the beach or head inland and explore the countless waterways, rivers, rapids, and streams that the great state of Georgia has on tap. 

It has multiple picturesque spots that are perfect for swimming and other water sports. Rafting on the Chattooga is an exhilarating activity that an outdoor enthusiast definitely must try.
