    Bald Ridge Campground – 31 & 30

    07.02.20-07.05.20 The best sites for a holiday weekend have to be booked 6 months in advance, sometimes to the minute. We scored site 31 for the 4th of July weekend. Seems like we are living at Bald Ridge Campground almost every weekend, but this is the last one we have booked for the summer. Site 31 is in the loop past the beach. The driveway is long enough to fit three vehicles and our trailer. Thankfully the water and electric hook up sit further off the site than the other sites we reserved in the past (48 & 53). The trees in this site provide a decent amount of shade for…

    Bald Ridge Campground – 69

    06.26.20-06.28.20 Might have found my favorite site at our go to Lake Lanier Campground. And of course— I will share all the details! For more details about the campground, be sure to check out any of the other Bald Ridge Campground posts (4). Ever since our first trip to Bald Ridge Campground I have been wanting to book site 69, but of course it never seemed to be available. I finally found an open weekend, May 8th-10th 2020. We booked the site about five months out from that date. Unfortunately, Lake Lanier experienced heavy rains that caused flood damage to some of their sites. They did not close the entire…

    Bald Ridge Campground – 48

    06.11.20-06.14.20 Reasons we love Bald Ridge Campground in Cumming, Georgia on Lake Lanier: Heather grew up going here and has many memories riding her bike around and around the loops as a little kid. Of all the campgrounds on Lake Lanier this one is the closest to our home. Many of the sites at Bald Ridge are shady, but offer waterfront access and views of the many boats going by. We enjoy the location on the lake for that reason. The water is refreshing and inviting to swim in. Another perk about Bald Ridge campground is the ability to flush your black tank with the campground hose. It will connect…

    Sweetwater Campground

    06.05.20-06.07.20 Corps of Engineers campgrounds on Lake Allatoona delayed opening 10 weeks due to Covid 19. June 1st they officially opened everything, but the playgrounds and beaches. Sweetwater Campground is located in Canton, Georgia on the northeast banks of Lake Allatoona. We came north up highway 575 to highway 20.The campground includes 149 sites and a large group camping section with 9 sites and a pavilion. I included a color coded map for RV sites vs. tent sites because this campground has many more waterfront tent sites than most campgrounds we visit. Also I’m a visual person and when we drove around I couldn’t keep up with the list at…

    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…
