Spend A Night In Georgia Camping On A Dock Right On The Edge Of A Swamp
Wilderness camping is a new phenomenon in Georgia, although some have been doing it for years. Rather than hitching up at a primitive site, or a waterpark campground with amenities galore, we have a natural area where you can spend the night completely undisturbed, surrounded by Georgia nature. Grab the whole family because this is one overnight dock camping trip they will not want to miss.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
