Campgrounds around Atlanta, GA

We will be traveling thru Georgia next spring and need some suggestions for full-hookup campgrounds in the vicinity of Atlanta. Thanks.

Stone Mountain is NE of downtown and a large, nice campground. We spend several nights there each year.

Stone Mountain is nice... But how long will you be in the area and what roads are you using coming in?

Since you're retired military Dobbins Reserve AFB is an option. They have some nice hook-ups and it is right off of I-75 in the NW metro area.

If you're just passing through Atlanta on I75, there's a nice park at Perry called Safe Harbour. I believe it's still a Passport America park.
We've stayed there several times when travelling to or from Florida. If weather is good, we stay more than one night, taking time to see some of the attractions in the area.

Full hookups limit your choices. Stone Mountain Park is probably the best for that. If you can do with water and electric, there are 7 CoE campgrounds around Lake Alatoona which is on the very northwest side of Atlanta about 30 miles from downtown, actually it is in Acworth, GA (mostly) . I like McKinney campground, been there several times and if you have a senior pass it's about $13. Disregard the suggestion for Perry, it is 100 miles south of Atlanta. You may want to search for CoE campgrounds or try searching on www.rvparky.com .

If we had more info we could give you better suggestions.

1. How long will you stay?
2. What roads will you be on, or what side of town will suit you best.
3. Any special interests or needs?
4. What will you be doing (job, visit, vacation) while here?

We only spend single nights there when driving in and out of FL, but we've found the Atlanta South a RV Resort to be friendly, quiet and very clean. Nothing fancy,but full hookup's and pull throughs. They're at Exit 222 of I-75 in McDonough.

Visit to Atlanta, GA

Thanks for all of the feedback. I hadn't thought of the COE parks but we do like to stay at them. We will be there for a week coming into Atlanta from the Andersonville Prison and departing to the North for Chattanooga. We are interested in the Civil War museums and sites in the area.

We have stayed in Stone Mountain Park, the newer sites are nice. I think we stayed on "trail E" site 85. At that time we had a 33 foot camper with 2 slide outs and we had room to spare.
