    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…

  • Georgia Campgrounds,  High Falls State Park

    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…

  • Georgia Campgrounds,  Vogel State Park

    Vogel State Park

    8.11.17-8.13.17 What truly sold me on purchasing the camper was being able to take our dogs with us everywhere we went. This was the second trip we went on that served a different purpose besides exploring and relaxing, (the first one being McDowell Nature Preserve Campground for a birthday.) We were heading up to Vogel State Park in Blairesville, GA for a wedding at Kaya Vineyard. Vogel State Park has come to be one of my favorite state parks in Georgia. Located at the base of Blood Mountain in the Chattahoochee National Forrest there is plenty of hiking and SO many waterfalls. Our visit was too early for the fall…
