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.
