Dahlonega, GA is the most quaint of mountain towns. It has a great town square and is known for it's origin as a gold mining town. RRanchga.com is located 6 miles from town center. Outside of town square, like 2 miles, you have a super Walmart. RRanch is 800 acres; horses, all types of amenities and VERY scenic and relaxing. 150 RV sites. Passport America. Been an owner there for 7 years. Check it out.

The website for RRanch did not show rates for rv sites. On PA website, the discount is good for 2 nights with a 7 day max stay. Normally $25 a night - PA discount = $12.50 + $2.50 a night usage fee. I take it that this is a park that is selling memberships and selling rv spaces as well. Of course, going thru Atlanta from the southwest, what about the roads going up from Atlanta?

R Ranch

$15 each of first 2 nights; $27.50 each added night up to 1 week.
Around Atlanta, I 285 north and connect with route 400 to Dahlonega. From there it's route 19. Website has best way to R Ranch.
AVOID 285 and 400 around Atlanta from 4 to 7pm. Time yourself so you enjoy the trip outside of rush hour. It's always bz near Atlanta but thins quick once on 400.
R Ranch is strikingly scenic, tucked in the foot of the mountains.
You will like it there!

Mountain Vista is a really nice RV park, and it's located in a beautiful location. We often drive by there going to a creamery 4 miles north of Dillard that milks their own cows and makes their own ice cream. It's the best.

We're part of a membership owned deeded campground 1/2 hour west of Dillard--Unicoi Springs Camp Resort at Helen. For the $325 yearly membership fee, we can camp 14 nights per month for free--March until December.

Our yearly cost will get you 8 nights at a nice commercial campground like Mountain View. And we have 300 campsites, two pools, an incredible clubhouse complex and a very active social program. It's just a first class, reasonable price place to go.

Corp of Engineers parks on Carters lake are good half price if you have a Senior Pass Doll Mountain,Woodring. Also All state parks across North GA are very nice Moccosin Creek State park good location in North East area close to several other State Parks with lots of beautiful scenery in each park. Went there last year and went to almost every state park within about 100 miles most are less than that distance. We will be at Doll Mountain for 10 days last of September. Also State parks have a 25% discount for Seniors

Yes as long as you have the senior pass or its equivelant for federal parks. Reserved my place about 3 weeks ago for half price. It pays to get old some time!!

I do not know of a bad campground in Ga. Mtn's. R ranch is by far the best we stayed at. The sites were perfect. If you get by the creek the sound is relaxing. The staff and campers were so kind and social. We are coast to coast members and stayed for a week @ $15 a night. The hair pin turn going into the camp ground requires you attention. Yes will go back but have so many others to visit first.
Try getting the Ga. Mtn Mag online for great info or the county web site.
Don't know when the Oct fest starts in helen, which brings mega traffic.
Enjoy!!!
