Campgrounds near Atlanta

Looking at a possible spring break trip south. Trying to mix it with some other things we got to do around Atlanta. Any recommendations?

Willing to drive a couple hours (ha.. thats 3 miles moving thru Atlanta!) to be out a bit in a quiet rural-like setting.

This may be a stretch for you, but this was a great little park about an hour southeast of Atlanta...

I will say we just stopped over one night, but what a nice setting and our big rv had no trouble getting into there !

We were in Atlanta a couple of months ago at Stone Mountain Park. Great campground, woods with views of the lake and Stone Mountain from some sites. Nice golf course in the park, hiking trails, fishing, about 40 minutes to downtown Atlanta.

In that area, Ft. Yargo State Park is very nice. Bring your fishing rod!

We always stay at Allatoona Landing on our way to Florida. It's a great place but does have trains that come through at night.

We also stayed at Stone Mountain and loved it. Comparable to Fort Wilderness in Disney. Not as nice but a close 2nd.

We stayed there for 3 days last June. We loved it. The area outside the gate is a little "economically depressed," so don't wait until your final approach to gas up. We did, but the neighborhood was not where you'd want to be at night. Once inside the park, you're fine. Just like Graceland.
