Camping in Georgia

From the rocky terrain of the North Georgia mountains to the sandy shores of its coast, you are sure to find a camping experience you’ll love in the Peach State. Keep these options in mind as you plan your Georgia camping trip:

Georgia State Parks

Georgia State Parks are a source for both recreation and respite. All of Georgia’s 48 state parks have hiking trails, and those with water access may offer day-time recreation activities, including boating, fishing, and water play.

When it is time for rest, retreat to your tent or RV camping site. Most sites offer fire rings and picnic tables. Hot showers are an option too if your campsite is near the public bathhouse.

Georgia National Parks

Georgia’s only national park, Cumberland Island National Seashore, is not suited for RV camping as tent sites are only accessible by boat or ferry. Reservations are required for camping at all five of its campgrounds.

These two campgrounds offer amenities like fire rings with grills, flush toilets, cold showers, and food storage:

The following three wilderness campsites have well water (which needs to be treated) and cell phone reception. All food and trash should be stored off the ground, and cooking must be with camp stoves only (no fires).

The five campgrounds limit stays to seven consecutive nights so more visitors can enjoy the park.

Georgia RV Parks

If you are camping with your RV, you can choose between a privately owned RV park or campground. These parks will vary in their convenience and amenities. Some parks will only offer water/electricity, while others provide full hookups, playgrounds, and community events.

Free Camping in Georgia

There are options for free RV camping and free tent camping in Georgia.

  • No-cost RV camping is available on Public Lands overseen by the USDA Forest Service. There are designated boondocking or dispersed RV sites at both the Chattahoochee National Forest and the Oconee National Forest.
  • No-cost primitive tent camping is available within the national forests at designated tent sites.
  • No-cost primitive camping is available at some of Georgia’s Wildlife Management Areas (WMA) in designated areas.

Georgia National Forests

The Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest is two separate national forests. The Chattahoochee National Forest is in the north Georgia mountains, and the Oconee National Forest is in eastern Georgia.  

Both forests are considered a “hiker’s paradise” due to the abundant trails and wildlife. If you enjoy more mountainous terrain, you might enjoy camping at the Chattahoochee National Forest. The Oconee National Forest has a flatter topography.  

Both forests are a variety of campgrounds, tent sites, and RV sites. There are dispersed and primitive sites for those seeking a more natural experience. There are developed campgrounds with picnic tables, fire rings, showers, utilities, and flush toilets for those who require amenities. Amenities will vary by site, and reservations are sometimes required.

"Great Place"

Thus cg is a great small one. It has three small loops. We started in loop A. It’s basically on the water. Big spacious sites, 50 amp, and water. Very clean cg and camp hosts very friendly. Several roads coming in were very steep down, but manageable with our 38 ft coach. Sone trees in loop A. Restroom very outdated, but one in loop C...

"Great Short Stay Campground"

This review is written from a short-stay campground (CG) perspective versus a destination location. RV GPS took us right to the Loves Travel Stop from I-75. The Love’s Travel Stop is adjacent to the truck area exit. We used the gate code provided in the email and proceeded to back-in site 23 at the far end of the CG. Back-in was easy and the...

Follow KOA directions not GPS!! Good KOA park with large easy access pull through sites. Convenient to Andersonville which has a great museum and driving tour. Equal distance to Plains which demonstrates the small town support for Jimmy Carter.

"Convenient to Riverwalk and Infantry Museum "

active staractive staractive staractive starinactive star
Spent 4 nights with FHU pull through sites. Friendly staff gave local suggestions. The Riverwalk connects to the park and is an enjoyable way to get into downtown Columbus. There is a hiking trail around a large lake, but sites are above the lake.
