Reed Bingham State Park


Entrance to Reed Bingham State Park

Reed Bingham State Park is a great place to stop on the way to Florida, but it is also one of those parks that you want to go back to with more time. 

Located in Adel, Georgia, Reed Bingham State Park offers 1,613 acres of wildlife. The prime attraction is a 375-acre lake for boaters, skiers, and fishers. The campground has 46 RV/tents sites, 1 pioneer campground, and 1 primitive paddle-in island campsite.

We were looking for a place to stay halfway from Woodstock, GA to Fort Wilderness Campground at Disney World. Reed Bingham State Park is located only 5 miles off I-75. We arrived about 9 p.m. and drove straight to our site. The gate closes at 10 p.m., but we could have called for a code if needed. 

Reed Bingham State Park Site 5

Site 5 is a huge pull-thru with a max length of 50 feet. The site offers 30-amp and 50-amp electricity hookup. This site was fantastic for an overnight stay as it was easy to get in and out of and level side to side. I loved that the view from the site is a large field full of huge trees with Spanish moss. It was an easy walk to the putt-putt course and playground. 

The campground offers putt-putt, guided pontoon boat tours, canoes and kayaks to rent, two playgrounds, and outdoor exercise equipment. There are 7 miles of hiking and biking trails, bikes can be rented at the Buzzard Roost in Campground loop one. Reed Bingham Lake has a beach and large pavilion available to rent. I’m not sure I would swim in the lake with the chance of American alligators joining you. 

Outside the state park is a restaurant, Catfish House that we have seen many people online rave about. It is a great location for campers and next time we would love to try it.

We drove up to the visitors center to check-in when we woke up and they had some awesome items available to purchase. We try to buy a sticker for each park we visit, but we also purchased the Georgia State Park ranger truck for our daughter. The Ranger of Reed Bingham gave our daughter a whole stack of patches for the park, starting her junior ranger program. 

Reed Bingham State Park will for sure be a park we want to go back and explore. I have a feeling we will be heading back to Disney in the next couple years. If so, we will get another chance to book Reed Bingham State Park.

Things we learned at Reed Bingham SP:

  1. Don’t be in a hurry when loading up to get to your next destination. We left our dog chains wrapped around the picnic table. They are easy to miss in the concrete, but easy to replace. Hopefully the camp hosts find a good use for them.
