Does Stone Mountain Park Campground fit those? Might be expensive for a winter.

With all the social / political issues involving Stone Mountain right now I can't suggest it. Those issues may fade with time. Plus it would be expensive...

Jaxenro,

A couple of questions.... How close do you want to be to Atlanta or other cities? And weather...it does snow here, especially north of Atlanta, and we don't deal with it well...or at all for that matter. When it melts it's over, until then you're stuck! So what is your tolerance level?

Try Twin Lakes RV park , 3300 Shore Drive, Cumming ,Ga. 770-887-4400. This campground is just north of Atlanta off of Georgia Highway 400. Small campground but I believe they have monthly rates, with full ups available And they are convenient to Atlanta.

I second the choice of Twin Lakes. Stayed there last September for a week. Very quiet campground and by the looks of it many rigs parked there looked like they were perhaps winter residences, not transients or summer seasonal. 50 amp with sewer and water, no Wi-Fi last year at least and no cable tv but my antenna picked up like 60 channels. I think they somehow have a cable connection broadcast over the air, if that makes sense. Very friendly family owned.

Not close to cities. We are from Massachusetts so snow isn't an issue for me but I have family near Gainesville so I want to be somewhat near that so I said north not south. An hour or two from Gainesville

Rural and secluded for the wnter sounds best

Red Top Mountain State Park has some full hookup sites. Lots of wildlife. A very noce park surprisingly near civilization.

McKinney in Acworth is nice. Old Federal in Flowery Branch on Lake Lanier. Probably have limits on how many nights you can stay, tho. Also, they are COE Campgrounds, so if you have Senior Parks Pass, they will be 1/2 price.
