    Fort Mountain State Park – 15

    10.14.22-10.16.22 Fort Mountain State Park is located in the Chattahoochee National Forest in North Georgia. The park’s main attraction is the epic overlooks with views of the North Georgia mountains. At the top of the mountain hikers will find a stone fire tower built by the Civilian Conservation Corps, open for tours on the weekends. The drive up the mountain has quite a few curves, but our truck did great.  The park includes a 17-acre lake with paddle boats to rent in the summer, a sand beach, and a putt-putt course. The State Park offers a fully stocked visitors center with plenty of ice and firewood. No cell service at this…

    09.18.22-09.24.22 Repeat after me, bring your bikes! Huntington Beach State Park is located in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina.

    Fort Yargo State Park

    02.18.22-02.21.22 Our family opened the 2022 camping season by checking off another state park, Fort Yargo. Three-day weekends mean we can drive a little farther and this trip took us about 2 hours east to Winder, GA. Fort Yargo State Park opened in 1954, but the log fort used to provide protection to the settlers was built in 1792. The state park is situated around a 260-acre lake that is great for jon boats, kayaks, paddle boards, and canoes. The other main attraction to the park is the 20 miles of trails for mountain biking.  Fort Yargo State Park has two campground loops, 6 yurts, and 16 cottages. In total…

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…
