Don’t let the size of this town fool you. Dacula is centrally located between Atlanta and Athens in northern Georgia. This historic little town is home to many of Atlanta’s oldest buildings, helping visitors remember that Georgia is, in fact, one of the original 13 colonies of America. Whether you enjoy spending time at the lake, hiking through forests, or spending nights out in a big city, when you book an RV in Gwinnett County, you’ll have ample opportunity to take on any of these adventures.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much in terms of public transportation. However, there is a route that can get you into Atlanta. Luckily enough there is relatively little traffic, so you can easily maneuver around in your Dacula RV rental by owner.
Sometimes it is good to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and Dacula offers the perfect escape for that. Whether you want to spend your day lost among the trees or being hypnotized by the lakes, Dacula is the ideal place to get away from it all.
The Great Outdoors
About 45 minutes north of town is Lake Lanier. This man-made reservoir has turned into its own little world. Visitors to the area can camp out, visit museums, shop, spend time on the lake or beach, or even go to the Margaritaville Water Park. There are plenty of places where you can rent sailboats, paddle boards, and kayaks. After a day out on the lake, you can either have your own little campfire dinner or go to one of the more than 100 restaurants in the towns around Lake Lanier.
If you’re looking to get lost in the forest and put your Dacula RV rental on the road, you can go further north to the Chattahoochee National Forest. With almost 900,000 acres of explorable wilderness covered by 850 miles of trails, Chattahoochee National Forest is the perfect place to escape from the world. With the rolling foothills of the lower Appalachians, you have your choice of taking a leisurely stroll or a more strenuous hike, or you can walk along a river and even try to find some of the historic petroglyphs within the park. With the multitude of rivers and streams crossing through the park, there are plenty of locations where you can cool off by sticking your feet in the water and relax.
When you secure an RV rental in Dacula, you’re going to need to find somewhere to spend the nights. While there may not be a ton of options, there are still plenty of wonderful places to stay that will allow you close access to plenty of outdoor adventures.
If you’re looking to stay in the area with the Dacula camper rental for at least a week, then the North Atlanta RV Park about 15 minutes northeast of Dacula is a good place for you. You will have access to the electrical hookups, water, sewage, and WiFi, and cable.
If you want something more inclusive, about 40 minutes south of town is the Stone Mountain Park Campground. You can enjoy the Stone Mountain Park attractions, like the ropes course, WiFi, a dump station, and emergency services. The beautiful lakeside park has over 200 sites ready for you to reserve.
Exploring the City
After your hiking and swimming adventures, there are several things you can do in and around town with the Dacula rental motorhome. If you want to experience the history of the area, you can spend the afternoon at the Freeman’s Mill Park. There is a restored, historic gristmill, a playground for kids, and a lowkey trail around the park. You can watch the little creek tumbling over the rock wall and enjoy the peace and quiet in the historic park.
About an hour southwest of Dacula sits Atlanta, the capital of Georgia. With a bustling nightlife and blossoming arts scene, there is never a dull moment in Atlanta. Some of the favorite places are the Georgia Aquarium, the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, and Six Flags Over Georgia. If you’re looking to learn more about Georgia and the area, you can spend time at the Georgia State Capitol or Atlanta History Center. Not only that, but you can treat yourself to some soul food or BBQ for a meal or two, or even three.
