    Fort Mountain State Park – 21

    05.22.20-05.25.20 Memorial Day weekend at Fort Mountain State Park called for rain all weekend, but it was beautiful! This was our second trip to Fort Mountain State Park; we managed to pick up a cancellation for the holiday weekend 5 days beforehand. Check out my first post on the park for other details. We drove back roads to get to Chatsworth, Georgia from Acworth and it was only about twenty minutes longer than taking highway 75. Heather took off Friday and we left around noon. We timed it just right to arrive after a big storm. This time around we were able to pull off on the side of the…

    High Falls State Park

    04.05.19-04.07.19 High Falls has been on my list of must see Georgia State Parks since we bought our camper. The High Falls Dam creates a scenic place for picnics, while further down the Towaliga River are some of the most breathtaking falls. Originally we were scheduled for site 89 in February, but due to a doctor visit and interview we rescheduled. Man am I glad we did! Site 89 on the website map makes it seem like it is riverside, private, with a path to the river. The paper map handed out at the park correctly has it placed across the road. The path seen in pictures is actually up…

  • Alabama Campgrounds,  Desoto State Park

    Desoto State Park – AL

    11.02.18-11.04.18 Desoto Falls State Park has been on my bucket list of campgrounds since we bought our camper. This was the perfect time to go with the leaves changing colors. Desoto State Park is located atop Lookout Mountain, just inside the northern Alabama/Georgia line. This campground is not far from Cloudland Canyon State Park. Desoto includes a gated campground with 94 sites and 25 cabins. The camp store was well stocked, but happened to be out of firewood this weekend. During the summer season they have an Olympic-size pool for a daily fee. The state park also has a restaurant that serves a traditional seafood buffet, steak dinner, or general…

    Black Rock Mountain State Park

    05.11.18-05.13.18 We won’t ever being coming back. The park is great, the campground was nice, but it’s a one and done for us. At least while we are in this camper. Black Rock Mountain is about two and a half hours away from our house and being the weekend warriors that we are, we got up there in the dark about 9:15 p.m. The gate closes at 10 p.m. and they will give you a gate code if you need it. Here is a picture of the little diesel that could. We pull our 2150RB with a diesel Colorado and despite my worry/anxiety it did great. Coming up Black Rock…

  • Georgia Campgrounds,  Vogel State Park

    Vogel State Park – 45

    3.16.18-3.18.18 Is it possible to have too much room at a site? Contrary to some opinions, sites at Vogel can be rather large. We stayed at a site one over from our last time here [First Trip to Vogel] because this one was a pull thru. Thanks to the new reservation process we knew exactly what we were getting. Site 45 was even level side to side, just had to lower the front. For more details on the campground/park–make sure to check out our first trip to Vogel. You can’t pick your neighbors though. The site was much closer to the road than the back-in sites at the creek. A…
