Discover Amicalola Falls Campground

In the wide-open wilderness north of Atlanta, you can rent an RV near Amicalola Falls Campground and have a memorable stay at one of Georgia’s best public campgrounds. This rustic RV park is within Amicalola Falls State Park and is surrounded by national forest land, human-made lakes, and recreation hot spots, making it one of the most in-demand vacation destinations in the entire southeastern United States. Within an hour's drive of Atlanta, Athens, and Dahlonega, Amicalola Falls Campground is an excellent place to base your RV rental vacation.

With two dozen camping sites, it may not be the largest campground near Dahlonega, but what it lacks in size it makes up for with its impressive scenery. Since the inception of the famous Appalachian Trail, a massive long-distance hiking route over 2,000 miles long, Amicalola Falls Campground has served as one of many shelters along the way. You don’t need to be a long-distance thru-hiker to stay the night though, as there are some level gravel sites to park a motorhome rental too. Additionally, the campground has a lodge with accommodations on-site.

There isn’t much in terms of resort-style amenities at Amicalola Falls Campground, but there are jaw-dropping views, gorgeous hiking trails, free-to-use restrooms and showers, laundry facilities, and electrical and water hookups for camper rentals. Tumbling waterfalls and a cozy restaurant solidify Amicalola Falls Campground as a place you’ll want to try when you book an RV in Dawson County.

There is a wonderful museum on-site documenting the Civilian Conservation Corps, which built the park, along with cabins, campsites, and fun-filled events like the Mountain Music and Arts & Crafts Festival held in September.

Don Carter State Park is located on the shores of Lake Lanier, one of the largest bodies of water in Georgia.
