Bookings are needed for the treetop campsite and may be made at the State Park by calling.
Paddle-In Camping – Reed Bingham and High Falls State Park

In the middle of the park’s 375-acre reservoir, Eagle Island is popular with boaters, fishers and skiers. Eagle Island gives boaters anonymity. The island is only 15-minutes by paddle from the sea, so campers can hire or carry their own canoes or kayaks.

There are four sleeping nests each.
Luxury Cottage Camping – Smithgall Woods State Park

Built-in, the center of the park, the broad decks of the cottage, overlook the babbling brooks and beautiful landscapes.
Backcountry Camping – Fort Mountain
The 4 backcountry campsites at Fort Mountain State Park are located two miles apart in the woods outside of Chatsworth and offer private and remote campsites to tourists. While a fire circle is on each campsite, tourists must carry all camping equipment to the rustic sites. The Moonshine settings 3 and 4 (called Rock Creek) of Fort Mountain provide tourists with spectacular seasonal views across the Chatsworth valley area.
Rucksacks are also accessible in the F.D. Roosevelt, Vogel, and other parks in the city. Camping campsites allow campers to have more security without a very long car ride than traditional campsites.

What to take with you?
Camping requires a bit of planning enjoying the experience in particular. There are many things to take to make you feel happy, especially on the free campsites which provide little in terms of amenities. It is always good practice to explore the location you’re camping in advance so that you can appreciate what is already open. Some of the general things you are going to consider are a shelter, baggage for sleeping, sleeping mats, table and chairs for camping headlamps or candles, axe or hammer, first aid kit, pocket cloth, clean water and food.
Camping is a longstanding tradition in Georgia that attracts crowds from every season throughout the state. Whether you are camping in the hills of North Georgia or along the coast of Georgia, our country has a few beautiful campgrounds. These are some fantastic camps in Georgia; where there is no reservation is required.
With all these beautiful places waiting for you, what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and set out to the expedition of your lifetime!
