The Great Outdoors

Nestled between several tourist hotspots like Atlanta, Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Charlotte, if you want to spend some time in the city, you’ll have lots of options. Or if you’re hoping to decompress in the countryside - the wooded paradise of Tugaloo State Park Campground has it all, situated within the tranquility of a state park there’s more nature than you can shake a stick at.While camping at Tugaloo Campground, you’ll also find yourself a short distance from the Chattahoochee National Forest, boasting an impressive 866,468 acres, 450 miles of hiking trails, 20 waterfalls, and numerous lakes including Lake Burton which is a must-see for fishing enthusiasts.One fun tidbit about the area is that just across the water from your North Georgia campground paradise, you’ll see Lake Hartwell State Park in South Carolina. That’s right - you could swim across the state border if you wanted to. But better yet, you can drive over and enjoy some of the fun activities and tours on offer at Lake Hartwell State Park, with boat rides, horseback riding, golf, and even scuba diving on offer. But if an active vacation isn’t your cup of tea, you can grab a picnic and find yourself a nice spot on the beach where you can watch other members of the family enjoy their adrenaline-pumping pursuits.

Exploring the Area

Officially within the town of Lavonia, with a population of just over 2,000, you’d better believe that this is a laid-back small town where everyone knows each other. You'll find mom-and-pop stores, family-owned bakeries, and diners that serve food like Grandma used to make.Just a hop, skip, and a jump over the border into South Carolina, you’ll find yourself in the slightly larger (but still packing a healthy dose of small-town charm) town of Anderson. It's a must-visit if you’re nearby on a Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday morning as that’s when the town’s famous farmers market is open. Pick up something fresh from the farm produce on offer… or if you can’t wait for lunch, you can grab a fresh-made pulled pork sandwich with homemade slaw.Looking to learn more about the history of the area? Hop in your RV rental near Tugaloo Campground and make your way to the Southeastern Railway Museum in Duluth, GA. Open Thursday-Saturday all year, it’s a great way to teach the kids about the railroads that built America - or at least keep them amused for a few hours. And gas stations are plentiful in the area, so there’s no need to worry about getting caught short.Seeing as you’re already in Duluth, you can make it a full day for the kids and drive the short distance to Atlanta to visit Zoo Atlanta, with over 1,500 species to view and interact with. The kids will have a whale of a time. While you’re in town, there are countless delicious eateries within minutes of the zoo. With fast-food joints, vegan fare, soul food, traditional diner food, Asian restaurants, and even dedicated dessert restaurants, you’ll be glad that you worked up an appetite.Or if you’d rather eat closer to home, there are pizza joints, southern food, BBQ shops, seafood eateries, and many more right by the Tugaloo Campground. Who knew there was so much to do in small-town Georgia? It’s probably time to go book an RV in Franklin County and start packing.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


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.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


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.


How does check-in work?


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.
