Camping Georgia

Yurt at High Falls State Park

Reconnect with the environment and with family and friends by camping in Georgia. Gone are the cares of traffic, errands, homework, school and those pesky grocery lists. Instead, enjoy fresh air, wildlife, lakes, rivers and get lost for a few hours on Georgia’s favorite trails. Consider these options for your next family trip.

Georgia State Parks

State parks offer a range of housing options, from primitive campsites to cozy cottages—and everything in between. Located throughout Georgia, parks have zip lines, playgrounds, hiking trails, water activities, yurts and more to keep the whole family entertained.
