BooBoo23 gives good advice. I've lived here almost 45 years and only travel I-285 between 9 am and 3 pm. LEOs rarely enforce speed limits on it and local drivers like to draft, NASCAR style. The traffic ballet also includes the "Atlanta Swoop", which involves a dramatic change from the far left lane over to the right hand exit lane at the last possible second and at a high rate of speed. Extra points are given for just kissing the gravel shoulder. You're usually okay if you keep your speed down, let 'em pass, and stay alert. When towing, I like to tuck in behind one of the semi's who seem to be driving sanely, but always allowing room for sudden pull-ins. Cheers!

Make sure you visit the Atlanta History museum, Kennesaw mountain park,
Great place for civil war history--- If you can rent or buy the movie Anderson ville it will make the prison site come alive !

Cloudland Canyon State Park is very nice. Just south of Chickamauga National Military Park is just a short drive and most interesting. (Civil War battlefield 1863). Also COE has several campgrounds on Lake Allatoona just northwest of Atlanta on I-75. It is close to Marietta (Kennessaw Battlefield area).

Stayed at Twin Lakes last September for a week. Very clean and well maintained. No cable TV but over the air I picked up 60 channels! I think they somehow re-broadcast a cable channels over the air. The nicer sites away from the lake have full hook ups and the whole park itself is very peaceful. One odd thing though is I don't believe there is any public restrooms/shower house.

We stayed in Ga mountain fairgrounds 18 months ago - told them we were relatively new to camping so please put us in a good spot .....they had us in an uneven spot (needing at least 16 inches of blocks to get level & 100 feet of either electric or water because of the distance between the hookups) when we got there .... told them hell no so they put us in a spot people typically can't back in to due to the slope on top of the mountain. Close to divorce on that back up for sure but once we were in the place was great. Would only go back if I got to choose my site & then would be on the lake ....
Loved the location in order to hit all those small towns around there for a week ....
Camping since May 2013 .... FL & GA only so far .... loving it!

okay, I stopped and went through Atlanta South RV park last weekend - actually Memorial Day. I do not recommend it. It is very crowded, very small sites, and many of the sites are not any where close to level. It could do for a night I suppose if you are just really tired but other than that - NOT for me. I had gone in there some 5 or 6 years ago and it was very different - even had some large long term sites at the back. that part has now been turned into storage or RVs and other things.
