4) Bear Creek Trail
If you're a true camper, then this is your place! The camp grounds are accessible by walkers only and the only amenities are two toilets. Talk about living on the land!
5) Black Rock Mountain State Park
This park features some of the highest ground in Georgia, which makes for cooler temperatures. You can take in the majesty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, lakes, and streams while also taking advantage of the electricity and water at the campgrounds.
