Georgia

State Park Campground Guide

← Previous state | Next state →

From the forested foothills of the Appalachian Mountains to the white sandy beaches, wetlands, and barrier islands of the Atlantic Coast, the state of Georgia is one of the most scenic in the southeast. The vibrant metropolis of Atlanta, renowned architecture of Savannah, and the big and small towns in between reveal the state’s history, cuisine, and culture to travelers.

Georgia’s geographic diversity provides rich opportunities for hiking, biking, boating, fishing, and many other outdoor activities. Its 48 state parks protect some of the most scenic and unique parts of the state, and are highly regarded by RVers and campers who have grown to love the Peach State. The 38 campgrounds that accommodate RVs are generally big rig friendly and well maintained, with sites including partial hookups. Whether you’re traveling through to Florida or planning a regional trip, Georgia state parks offer an excellent experience for RVers.

Featured Campgrounds

Skidaway Island State Park

52 Diamond Causeway, Savannah, GA 31411

Immerse yourself in the iconic Southern Georgia landscape by camping among live oaks dripping with Spanish moss. This beautiful barrier island state park feels like its own world, yet is located just outside a village with stores, and only 20 minutes from downtown Savannah. Skidaway Island State Park is the perfect base to tour the area, including the nearest open-ocean beach at Tybee Island. Hiking trails wind through maritime forest and salt marshes, with a boardwalk and wildlife observation tower. Historical sites along the trails include Civil War earthworks and moonshine stills from the Prohibition era.

Skidaway Island is one of the few Georgia state parks whose campground has some full-hookups sites, although there are less than 20 and they get booked up fast. That leaves around 70 additional sites with partial hookups, and all the campsites can accommodate big rigs with room to spare. Well-maintained restrooms, laundry facilities, WiFi, and decent cell service add to the comforts of this notable campground.

Vogel State Park

405 Vogel State Park Road, Blairsville, GA 30512

One of Georgia’s oldest state parks is located in the mountainous Chattahoochee National Forest, less than two hours north of Atlanta. Civilian Conservation Corps facilities from the 1930s enhance the history and natural beauty of the park. Spectacular fall colors, swimming, hiking, and boating make the park a year-round destination, and a variety of trails include an easy lake loop that leads to Trahlyta Falls and a challenging backcountry hike.

The wooded campground includes more than 80 sites with electric and water hookups. A dump station and modern restrooms are available. Most sites can accommodate rigs up to 40 feet, but be cautious of tree branches when parking. Cell service is reportedly spotty; WiFi is available in some areas of the park. Shopping and restaurants in the charming town of Blairsville are nearby.

Cloudland Canyon State Park

122 Cloudland Canyon Park Road, Rising Fawn, GA 30738

Cloudland Canyon State Park lives up to its magical name with some of the best scenery and hiking in the state. Located on the western edge of Lookout Mountain in northwest Georgia, the park has more than 50 miles of forested trails. Take the Overlook Trail to peer over 1,000 feet down into the canyon, or hike down for a close-up view of beautiful waterfalls. Mountain bikers can enjoy 30 miles of dedicated trails, and wild cave tours are an option for the adventurous. 

More than 70 campsites with partial hookups are available between the East and West Rim campgrounds. Sites are big enough to accommodate RVs over 40 feet, but be sure to verify site length when booking. Cottages and yurts are also available as alternative accommodations. Cloudland Canyon is an easy drive from the restaurants, shops, and attractions in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
