I stayed at the Atlanta/Marietta RV Resort over the Christmas Holidays. Pretty nice sites.

I have not used either of these campgrounds yet. But I have ridden and drove around them many times and it is a very nice area. Both are just north of Gainesville and allow easy access to Helen, GA and the North Georgia mountains.

Leisure Acre Campgrounds

Yonah Mountain Campground

The only potential downside is until the weather turns cold there are a lot of motorcycles in that area. Helen, GA has become a primary destination for local clubs and groups for weekend rides. It will die down after the Octoberfest celebration...

I don't think you can stay at any government run CG's, local, state or federal for more than 2 weeks. If they allowed that they would severely limit the amount of use by more of the public and also compete with the private CG owners who depend on seasonal's for base income.

If you are willing to move every 2 wks and not have sewer hookups, there are beautiful Corps of Engineers Campgrounds in this area. Plus, if you are over 62 and have a Senior Access Pass, your camping fees are half price and you will have an inexpensive winter! Be aware, it gets cold up here too.

I can also vouch for Twin Lakes. If you want to be close to all things urban yet feel like you are in the boonies this is your place. We have grandchildren close by and visit often. Always stay at Twin Lakes. Really like going to our place after a day with family. Russell Pendley is the owner and will treat you well.
I have to chuckle regarding your remark about snowy/cold weather. Mass. has lots of snow removal equipment. Georgia has NONE. When it snows, or worse yet a little ice hits the ground, everything STOPS until it is gone. Traffic becomes one big Demolition Derby.

I would say stay away from KOA Calhoun. Very bad experience there a couple of years ago.

McKinney was nice. Good short water or sewer at sites.
