Dog-Friendly Cottages: Traveling with Pets

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. Regular campgrounds allow dogs and no additional fee is charged when booked at those campsites. List of "dog friendly" cottages in the Georgia State Park System.
