Camping in Georgia

At the end of Oct, the DW and I will be heading from Ontario to the southern states. We will be spending 3 or so nights each in Myrtle Beach state park and Hunting Island state park in SC. We will still have another week or so before we head back to the somewhat 'brisk' temperatures of Ontario.

We've never been to Georgia and it seems a logical place to spend the second half of the trip to soak up the scenery and warmer temps. Does anyone out in forum land have any suggestions regarding what to see and where to stay? As empty nesters, it is just the two of us and our furry friend, pulling a Mini Lite 2304. Dry camping for a few days would be no problem as we are fairly well self contained. Decent cycling opportunities would be a plus.

thx for your feedback.

The North GA mountains are great for site seeing and cycling. There are numerous state parks that are all great, Vogal State Park in Blairsville, GA is one of my favorites. Cloudland Canyon State Park in Walker County is also a really nice park with good hiking trails and beautiful views and water falls. The Georgia state parks have nice level camp sites with fire pits, watch and electricity, they also all have nice bath houses that are very clean. On your way back to Ontario, if you go through Tennessee, I would suggest visiting Fall Creek Falls State Park.

I haven't camped down in the area of Savannah but have visited it and Tybee Island several times. It is a "must see" if you are along the coast. Not sure when it starts but Fantasy in Lights (Fil the frog is the mascot) takes place at Callaway Gardens near Columbus, GA during the holiday season. Roosevelt State Park is just minutes from Callaway.

Stone Mountain Georgia

Camped here for a week. Never at a loss for things to do in the Park or around Atlanta. Being 'in the Park' very safe area. Driving around Atlanta.... know where you are at and know where you should not be at.......

If you plan on traveling up I-81 Hungry Mother State Park near Marion Va would be a good stop. Just about 8 miles from I-81 and close to the Virginia Creeper Trail. The trail is an old rail line converted to bike use. Wonderful scenery. You can get a shuttle to the top of the mountain and ride down or just get on the trail any where you like and ride as you please.
