With the summer season fast approaching, we know plenty of travelers are itching to get out there and see more sights and satisfy their wanderlust. Keeping that in mind, we’d like to recommend the Peach State since Georgia has plenty of gorgeous state parks to choose from.
Here are Three Amazing Georgia State Parks:
Located in St. Mary’s Georgia, this state park has campsites nestled in palmetto pines & Spanish moss draped oaks for a truly southern experience. Campers can enjoy hiking, biking, and much more in this state park that is located a few miles from I-95 along Georgia’s Colonial Coast. For those that like to fish, there is a boat ramp for easy access to the river. And the ferry to Cumberland Island National Seashore is just a few miles down the road. Cumberland Island National Seashore is known for its secluded beaches and wild horses. The Crooked River State Park has a nature center of its own, as well as nature paths for explorers to see the wildlife up close & personal.
The Park lists 63 electric RV sites for travelers to choose from. With so many fun outdoor options and amenities, this park will quickly become a family favorite.
The Chattahoochee River meets Lake Lanier at the lovely state park. Please be aware that the water is tested frequently so travelers are urged to check the park website for status updates on swimming availability. Don Carter is the state’s newest state park, plus it’s the first one on Lake Lanier’s 38,000 acres.
With boat ramps, docks, fish cleaning stations, and a sandy beach with a playground, this newest addition to the Georgia State Parks system will quickly become a popular choice. The park boasts 14.5 miles of hiking trails, 8 miles of paddling trails, and even horse back riding (fees may apply).

This park sits on the north end of Lake Eufaula (also called Lake Walter F. George), and is a great place for those that love water sports. It is adjacent to a natural deep-water marina with an accessible fishing pier, boat slips and boat ramp.
For nature lovers, there is an abundance of birds to be seen in the park such as Heron, Egrets, and Bald Eagles.
