    Red Top Mountain State Park

    11.24.21-11.28.21 Full hook-up site for Thanksgiving was the way to go! Red Top Mountain State Park is located in Acworth, GA on Lake Allatoona. The state park is 1776 acres with 15 miles of hiking trails. Named for its red soil, the park used to be an important mining area. Red Top Mountain State Park has 93 campsites, 1 yurt, 20 cottages, and 1 pioneer campground. The state park is in the middle of renovations projects and we were impressed with the work they have done so far. They removed the putt putt course and built a unique picnic area looking down over the beach. We have never used the…

    Cloudland Canyon State Park – 8

    10.01.21-10.03.21 Found our favorite site at Cloudland Canyon State Park, too bad it is already booked solid in the fall of 2022. Our first trip to Cloudland Canyon happened in 2017, the year we bought the camper. We stayed on site 40 in the West Rim and will continue to book West Rim because we prefer the more spread out and wooded campsites. East Rim is great for proximity to the main overlook. (See details/photos about our October 2017 stay at site 40 in Cloudland). Cloudland Canyon offers all types of overnight experiences with 16 cottages, 10 yurts, 72 camper/tent sites, and 30 walk-in sites. The cottages sit right between…

    Fort Mountain State Park – 21

    Site 21 at Fort Mountain State Park is a pull-thru in the creek side campground (we were in the lake side campground last time.) Both campgrounds are gated which was nice with all of the day visitors coming into the park. Site 21 is at the very end of the loop right before the entrance/exit. Most of the sites in this campground provide lots of shade and have plenty of room between each site. Sites 13-21 on the outside have trails to a small creek that we could hear from our campsite at night.

    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…
