Nice state park just off I-75 south of Atlanta

Hi, High Falls State Park is a nice park just off of the highway just south of Atlanta. It's a nice stopping point after getting through Atlanta. It is a couple of miles off the highway. Rates were $25 plus a daily park pass of $5. Teh camp ground is gated, but you can get in after the main office closes by seeing the camp host at the campground entrance.
They have electric and water hookups, dump station, showers and nice shaded sites. They also have a swimming pool during season, canoe and kayak rentals. They accept pets according to the usual leash laws.
The town of High Falls is very unique in itself, in that it is small and almost the opposite of bustling Atlanta. But there are a few places to get supplies if needed, and a few bars and restaurants. The town of Jackson is only a short drive away.
There is a nice restaurant called High Falls Inn that sits on the corner of the road going into one of the two campgrounds and they serve some of the best fried catfish around! The prettiest thing about the park is the waterfalls along the river that flows alongside the campground.
It has never been crowded during the week when we have stopped overnight. In fact, there are few campers there at all.
The only downside to this park that I could find were the big hills getting in and out of the park. There is a steep grade into the park and another getting out. Telephone and television reception are limited, but it is nice and quiet, and the camp hosts are more than helpful. We often stop here when we are making the trip to and from Florida when visiting the Midwest.

dkasten39828 is an unknown quantity at this point
We have stayed @ High Falls S.P. many times over the years. It is a favorite of ours. One of the groups we camp with stay there nearly every January over the MLK holiday weekend... it is nearly always cold enough to freeze hoses overnight and has even snowed upon us a couple of times!

There is a family-style restaurant nearby named BUCKNER'S which we try to visit each time we're camping up there.

Never been to Buckners, but the fried catfish at the High Falls resturant is very good if you like fish. They also have a number of other homemade dishes that are very good as well. Indian Springs State Park is not too far of a drive from High Falls too. Never stayed there, but it seemed like a nice park. Ronny

Oh yes, Buckner's. It is the same exit with Sagon RV, where we bought our 2363.
