Camp at Stephen C. Foster State Park

Added by Christian Murillo

Stephen C. Foster State Park is a hot spot for Georgia wildlife. The swamps and bodies of water attract alligators, black bears, herons, turtles, and more. The park is ideal for birding or simply enjoying the sounds of nature. Choose from campsites, cottages, lodge, or pioneer camp for a cozy stay. Activities range from hiking to kayaking.

Awesome facilities, great park

Although Stephen C Foster state park is truly in the middle of nowhere, this has its benefits. The park hosts crazy amounts of wildlife, beautiful forests, and an unbeatable night sky. Camping here is your best bet to take advantage of all of these things. The tent and RV sites are very well kept and spacious. The cottages are also cozy and have all of your modern facilities, for a very reasonable price. For just $150 you can comfortably sleep 8 people.
