First-time Camper Program

First-time Camper Program Expands with New Parks

$50 gets you two nights, borrowed gear and expert advice

Adults who grew up camping remember the fun of making s’mores and sleeping under the stars.  But for those who have never camped before, spending the night outdoors can be an unfamiliar adventure.  Our First-time Camper Program allows newbies to try it out with borrowed gear and a helping hand.  Since the program began last year, more than 100 families have enjoyed their first camping experience.  F.D. Roosevelt and General Coffee state parks have just joined the list of participating parks, which also includes A.H. Stephens, Fort Mountain, Fort Yargo, James H. Floyd, Reed Bingham and Skidaway Island.


The First-Time Camper Program is a bargain weekend getaway.  For just $50, park guests spend two nights in a campground, trying out a tent, sleeping pads and camp stove.  Park staff greet campers upon arrival, help them set up their tent, and even give a Camping 101 lesson.  At the end of their adventure, campers have to return the gear, but they go home with memories to last forever.  Learn more at GeorgiaStateParks.org/firsttimecamper. 


Skidaway Island State Park

Camping Clubs Save You Money

Sleeping under the stars has always been a budget-friendly way to explore the Peach State. Now Georgia’s State Parks are making the price tag even more appealing by offering loyalty programs for both tent and RV campers.  Members earn every tenth night of camping for free, and there’s no cost for membership.  Our campgrounds feature hot showers, laundry facilities, grills, picnic tables and space for campfires.  A variety of campsites allow guests to choose their amenities, from water and electric hookups, to RV pull-through sites, to more remote tent sites.  Campers can pick up free membership cards from state park offices.  Best of all -- there’s no time limit to stay nine nights and earn the tenth night free!  Learn more at GeorgiaStateParks.org/RVClub and GeorgiaStateParks.org /Geo-Camp.

Trail of Tears

New Echota Cherokee Capitol

2013 Marks 175th Anniversary of 

the 'Trail of Tears'

Most people have heard about the tragic “Trail of Tears,” when thousands of Native Americans were removed from their homes and forced to walk to Western territories.  However, many don’t know that the treaty leading to this event was signed in north Georgia at New Echota.  Established in 1825, New Echota was the Cherokee nation’s capital, which operated much like the U.S. government. 


Today, visitors to New Echota Historic Site in Calhoun can learn about this event and see 12 buildings, including the Council House, Court House, print shop, missionary home, an 1805 store and outbuildings.  Nature trails lead visitors to New Town Creek and a small beaver pond.  On May 18, the site will hold a memorial service in honor of the thousands of Cherokee who perished during the “Trail of Tears.”  To learn more, visit GeorgiaStateParks.org/NewEchota and www.nationaltota.org.


Park Chef to Compete at Vidalia Onion Festival

We’re so excited!  The chef at George T. Bagby State Park in Fort Gaines has been selected as a contestant in the Vidalia Onion Festival’s annual Golden Onion cooking competition. The April 14 cook-off will showcase 12 chefs putting their own creative spin on Georgia’s official state vegetable.  During the competition, Michael Shutters will create a sweet onion, apple and goat cheese popover.  

Located on 48,000-acre Lake Walter F. George, the park’s Pilot House Grille serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, with the exception of no dinner on Sundays.  Friday nights feature a low-country boil, and fried chicken is always on the country buffet for lunch and dinner.  The park offers a 60-room lodge with conference center, cabins, walking trails, boat rental and a golf course.  Boaters can even use a courtesy dock behind the restaurant.  To learn more, visit GeorgiaStateParks.org/GeorgeTBagby
