Camping in Georgia State Parks

Camping at Elijah Clark

Elijah Clark State Park


Whether you are a first-time camper or an experienced backpacker, Georgia's state parks have a campsite for you. Forty-one parks offer more than 2,700 campsites, including tent-only areas, RV pull-thru sites, primitive camping and group camping areas. Rates average around $30–$35 per night. Most state parks have laundry facilities and sell camping supplies. If you've never camped before, don’t let that stop you. Several parks offer "glamping" yurts (a cross between a tent and a cabin).


Tent, Trailer & RV Campsites

These developed sites offer electrical and water hookups, grills or fire rings, and picnic tables. Some are specially designed just for tents, while others have curved pull-thrus for large RVs. Modern comfort stations with hot showers, flush toilets and electrical outlets are conveniently located. All campgrounds have dump stations, and several offer cable TV hookups.

Walk-In Tent Campsites

These wooded campsites provide a tent pad, picnic table and fire ring, but usually no water or electricity. While they are more secluded than tent/trailer/RV sites, they are within easy walking distance of a comfort station, water spigot, trash bins and central parking area.

Backcountry Campsites

Backpackers will enjoy the solitude of these undeveloped sites. All camping gear (including water) is packed in and out by the hiker. Trail distances vary, so campers should plan ahead. Choose from F.D. Roosevelt, Black Rock Mountain, Cloudland Canyon, Fort Mountain, Mistletoe, Providence Canyon, James H. Floyd and Tallulah Gorge state parks. Don Carter, Fort McAllister and Panola Mountain state parks have primitive campsites that do not require a long hike.

Platform & Squirrel's Nest Campsites

Fort Mountain, Victoria Bryant, and Unicoi state parks offer covered platforms where visitors can roll out sleeping bags. Bathhouses with hot showers are within walking distance, and fire rings and picnic tables are provided.

Paddle-In Campsites

For a unique experience, paddle to your own private island campsite at Reed Bingham or High Falls. These primitive sites have very few amenities, so be sure to pack everything you’ll need.

Pioneer Campsites

Organized groups such as Scouts can pitch tents in these private camping areas found at most state parks. All come with pit toilets, most have water spigots and some have covered picnic shelters and grills. These primitive campsites will not accommodate RVs or trailers and usually do not provide showers.
