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 $23–$28 per night. Most state parks have laundry facilities and sell camping supplies.
New! Site-specific reservations are coming August 1 to a few select state parks (Richard B. Russell, Laura S. Walker, James H. Floyd and Reed Bingham). Check back soon for details.
Reservations can be made up to 13 months in advance, online or by calling 1-800-864-7275. Campsite reservations are for a “type of site,” not for a specific campsite number. You may select the available site of your choice (of the type you reserved) after check-in.
A two-night minimum is required for weekend reservations, and a three-night minimum is required for Memorial Day, Labor Day and Independence Day weekends. Walk-ins may occupy a site for just one night.
A deposit equal to the minimum stay is required. Cancellations made at least three days prior to the arrival date will receive a deposit refund, minus $10 cancellation fee. Campers must pay the full balance upon check-in. No refunds are given when the stay is shortened to less than the required minimum. This also applies to equestrian-area campers and horse stalls. Reservations may be transferred once to another date, facility or park without penalty as long as it is made at least three days prior to the arrival date. To change a reservation, call 1-800-864-7275. Cancellations can be made on-line, however, reservation changes cannot be made online.
To protect park resources, campsite occupancy is limited to one of the following combinations:
Campsites have a six-person occupancy limit, and tents must fit on designated tent pads. Tents erected off designated tent pads are subject to removal. Camping between designated sites is prohibited. When camping areas are filled to stated capacity, no other campers will be allowed. Camping is limited to 14 consecutive days at any one park. Visitors using a campsite for 14 nights must vacate the park for at least three nights before returning.
Check-in is between 1 p.m. and 10 p.m. and check-out is before 1 p.m. Campers must register and present a reservation confirmation before setting up. Both the reservation and deposit fee are forfeited if the camper does not check in by 10 p.m. on the scheduled arrival date. Most park gates are locked at 10 p.m. Tents and other personal property left overnight in an unoccupied campsite are subject to removal and fees will be forfeited. “Saving” sites for late-arriving guests is allowed only for reservations made in advance, but cannot be monitored by park staff.
All RV sites and most “regular” campsites offer electrical and water hookups, grills or fire rings, and picnic tables. 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. Only Florence Marina, Gordonia-Alatamaha and Skidaway have a few sites with sewage hookups.
Pets are welcome in campgrounds if kept on a six-foot leash and attended at all times. Campers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Since organized groups are not eligible to occupy regular tent/trailer/RV sites, group camps and pioneer camping areas are available and offer more privacy.
There is a ParkPass fee for each vehicle.
