I would not recommend Don Carter. I live in Gainesville and we were so excited to have a state park that would be open year round for camping right here in our own back yard. However, after touring the campground, I could have cried I was so dissapointed. Horrible sites, not level, no trees, hardly any space between the sites and not one site that is lake front. Looks like a really bad parking lot. Unfortunately for mid February you do not have a lot of choice around here. The corp parks are great but do not open until April. If you do not mind a little bit of a drive (30 mins or less) Fort Yargo state Park in Winder, GA is absolutely gorgeous. Great sites with lots of trees and room. Feel free to message me with any questions.
