Don Carter Campground

Are you having trouble deciding whether to go on a camping vacation in the gorgeous South or whether to rent an RV and head for the beautiful mountains? Good news, you don’t actually have to choose, just book an RV in Hall County and go camping at Don Carter Campground in Georgia. Mere minutes from the most southern part of the Appalachian Mountains, this RV park is located on the shores of Lake Lanier, which means that you’ll have access both to swimming and fishing if you stay here. Clean your catch at the fish cleaning station and cook the delicious fish on one of the grills while the kids run around the playground or learn at the visitor center, and your dog is begging for the leftovers.The trails running through the hardwood forest provide you with an ideal opportunity to escape the rest of the world for a while, and you won’t have to worry about a lot around your rental RV at Don Carter Campground, either. The pull-through sites have full hookups, which is very convenient, and you can also use both the restrooms and showers as you please. Not even forgetting your kids’ favorite snacks will be a problem, not with the camp store on-site.When you’re RV camping at Don Carter Campground, you’ll get to spend some time in the beautiful and fun city of Gainesville, full of events and things to do. You can also head south to Flowery Branch, or north to the very picturesque mountain village of Helen where you’ll feel like you walked straight into a Grimm’s fairytale. Experience some outstanding mountain views, have fun by the water, or visit a winery or two - all this and so much more is just around the corner from your RV rental at Don Carter Campground. You can also see a race, play some golf, or visit the larger cities of Athens and Atlanta.

Camping with an RV

Camping with an RV

Have you ever wanted to sleep at the foot of a mountain or wake up to the sound of the ocean’s waves gently crashing on the shore? When on a road trip, do you like to stop at every weird and wonderful roadside attraction? Do you ever just want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and get out into the great outdoors? Then renting an RV is definitely for you.

Camping in an RV allows you to adventure on your terms. Whether you’re looking to bond over an open fire with family and friends or you just want to get away for a while, there’s no better way to do it than from behind the wheel of an RV.

The Great Outdoors

When you’ve had enough fun at Don Carter State Park (if that’s even possible), hop into your camper rental and go to Tallulah Gorge State Park for some hands-on mountain adventures. In and around this spectacular canyon, you can go both rock climbing and mountain biking - if you dare. You can also cross the gorge on the suspension bridge, hike down to the floor, or just walk along the rim trails and enjoy the lovely views and stunning nature where you can find both the monkey-faced orchid and green salamander. If you’d like to know more, take some time for a visit to Jane Hurt Yarn Interpretive Center.There’s no need to go far with your Gainesville motorhome rental to see and experience some nature. There are trails taking you through the scenic landscape (you’ll even be close to the Appalachian and Southern Highroads Trails), or you could visit Atlanta Botanical Garden in Gainesville. This place is truly delightful, and when you see how the flowers and bushes have turned into something completely different, you might just start to believe in magic. There are also classes to take if you’d like to improve your own garden.Another amazing nature experience close to your camper rental in Gainesville is the fantastic corn maze and pumpkin patch in Dawsonville. Each year brings a new maze, and if you’re worried you won’t find your way out, you can always try the smaller version. Find the perfect pumpkin, or go on the haunted corn trail lit by nothing but the moon. There are also other parks and fields where you can play some games if you got too scared in the corn maze.

Exploring the Area

Did you know that the California gold rush wasn't the first of its kind? Twenty years earlier, the Georgia gold rush was sparked in Dahlonega, minutes away from your camper rental in Gainesville. Pay a visit to the Dahlonega Gold Museum where you can learn all about the thousands of men coming to the area to make both a name and a fortune for themselves, and stop by the Smith House on the way, where you can both learn about the once-forgotten mineshafts underneath the building as well as have a delicious, family-style meal. Just make sure there aren’t any gold nuggets in the hearty stew, or you might need to get a gold tooth.You can find all sorts of entertainment and culture in Gainesville as well, especially if you’re fascinated by the arts. Check out The Art Council’s events that vary from an intimate jazz night, a movie on the lawn, or an elegant symphony or head to Quinlan Visual Arts Center and its unique mix of exhibits. If you’d like to throw some theater in the concoction, then spend the night watching a play by the Gainesville Theatre Alliance.If you don’t want to miss out on the hospitality of the South and the gorgeous mountains in northern Georgia, then you know what to do. That’s right: book an RV in Gainesville.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
