The Best Places for Camping in Georgia

A night under the Georgia stars does wonders.

Georgia is home to a variety of incredible camping opportunities that you need to add to your to-do list. Bring your kayak and paddle your way around Georgia's unique swampy wilderness. If you feel more like lounging, you can take just a few steps from your tent and hang lakeside all day. Or if you're looking for more of an active camping trip, take advantage of the beautiful hike-in campsites. You really can't go wrong at any of these beautiful campsites.
