Upstate SC State Parks or NE Georgia SP

Our Roo 233S will be here THIS Sunday! Next weekend I am interested in camping outside the mountains as I am really want some "spring" weather. We want to get a 2 night trip in either in SC or Georgia ..,about 2 or 3 hour drive from the Smoky Mountains in NC (Sylva/Cherokee area). I have camped at Georgia's Hart SP on Lake Hartwell and it is nice.

I am looking for good State Parks any and all ideas welcome...

Thanks.

Try Talullah Gorge SP. It's a short drive to plenty of neat things to do & see if you grow tired of the campsite. Lots of history if you're into that. Close to 3-4 wineries if you like that. I love the N. Ga. Mountains.

grb,
That is a good idea and the park is pretty and it is close to a Chick Fil A (lol)....we will add it to our list...I do want to get out of the mountains...looking for a 70 degree day or two...hoping to find a piedmont place and maybe that (the Gorge) will do the trick for us.....

If you want to go a bit further, try Watson Mill Bridge State Park - very pretty area. It is rural, but near Athens if you need anything, like a good restaurant.

We camped at Watson Mill Bridge State Park a few weeks ago, and it was wonderful. Nice walking trails, and the campground is clean. I would also recommend Moccasin Creek State Park. We have camped there several times.

hello from upstate sc!! have you tried twin lakes, oconee point or coneross? all 3 are gorgeous cg's. we live in Easley sc and really enjoy all the local cg's around us. we have stayed at those 3 above and many more in the local area. as far as regular state parks, oconee state park is very nice but still not what you are actually looking for as far as piedmont, warmer climate type spots. we just got back off of a 5 day stay at paris mountain state park and it was wonderful. 10 minutes from downtown greenville sc but very secluded, many trails to hike, the paddle boats and canoes. only drawback was alot of the sites are very unlevel front to back so with our 29' by the time we got "level" the tongue was almost chest high
