    Georgia Glamping Company

    05.17.19-05.19.19 Georgia Glamping Company was started by a North Georgia family for over a year ago. The company sets up large canvas tents with all of the amenities you could imagine. I found this company through instagram and knew that I wanted to purchase a gift certificate for my parents. The idea was that my whole family would reserve a couple spots next to each other for the weekend. Rebeka is the main contact for the company and she was great to work with. She answered all my questions in a timely manner and set us up to have a great weekend. Rebeka also helped my mom up to the…

    Shady Grove Campground

    05.17.19-05.19.19 Shady Grove Campground is located on the west side of Lake Lanier in Cumming, Georgia. Previously a Corps of Engineers campground, it is currently owned by Forsyth County Parks and Recreation. The campground is set up on a peninsula with a large number of the 96 total sites having waterfront access. Shady Grove Campground includes a large beach area, boat dock, and playground. We really enjoyed that the roads (and sites) were heavily shaded, making for better walks with the dogs. Shady Grove Campground is the third Lake Lanier campground we have visited since starting the adventures in our travel trailer. Bolding Mill Campground and Bald Ridge Campground are…

    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…

    Mistletoe State Park

    04.03.19-04.05.19 Mistletoe State Park is located outside Augusta, GA on Clarks Hill Lake. While this State Park is well loved, it wasn’t necessarily on our list of must visit parks. We have multiple campgrounds much closer to home with lakefront sites. The original plan was to go home from Santee State Park to do laundry and hit the grocery store again before our visit to High Falls State Park, however when driving right past this park we had to look up availability. Sunday I checked online for sites open Wednesday through Friday. We couldn’t have been luckier. Site 49, a premium pull-thru site with water views on three sides was…

    Santee State Park – SC

    03.29.19-04.03.19 Santee State Park is located on Lake Marion about an hour inland from Charleston, SC. That puts it at about a 5-hour drive for us pulling the camper, but does not include the terrible Atlanta traffic. What personally drew us to this state park? A close friend recently took a job there as a ranger! What might draw others to Santee? It is great for fishing, kayaking, and everyone seems to have a boat. This state park is huge (2500 acres), so with that everything is spread out. We had to drive to any trails we wanted to hike. It was a ten-minute drive to the camp store and…
