Visiting Georgia’s State Parks with Your Pet
Dogs are welcome at Georgia's State Parks as long as they are on a 6-foot or shorter leash; however, they are not allowed in or around historic sites, lodges, group camps, swimming areas, or some trails at Panola Mountain and Tallulah Gorge. Dogs must never be left unattended, either in campsites, cottages or vehicles. Kennels are not available. Owners should clean up after pets.
Dogs are allowed in all regular campgrounds. No additional fee is charged.
Dogs are allowed in select "dog friendly" cottages with advance reservations. All state parks that offer cottages have at least one cottage that allows dogs. Keep in mind that "dog friendly" cottages often fill quickly. A $45 fee per dog (limit 2) is charged.
