Fall Trip 2020, Tugaloo State Park, NE Georgia

Tugaloo State Park



Located in NE Georgia this beautiful park is located on a reservoir that is part of the Tugaloo river that seperates the eastern border of Georgia with South Carolina. The park is spacious with many sites located near the water with great views. My brother and I arrived in the fall season of late October. I picked him up at his home near Athens, GA to take him on a camping trip to celebrate his 72nd birthday. The park is very peaceful with many activities from kayaking, canoeing, fishing and hiking. The park is quite popular as a family destination for campers who come from the surrounding states to enjoy nature and the water sports that make this park special.

The park has a yurt village and rental cabins for those who are not campers. The camp store has camping supplies, ice and fire wood for the cool fall nights. During the fall season campers decorate their sites to enjoy the holidays. We visited Tugaloo about a week before Halloween. Many of the sites spared no expense in setting up their sites with decorations that the children loved not to mention the adults to.

Our campsite was very nice. We stayed for four nights and had a a full set up just across from the nicely kept restrooms. We had nice views of the lake with a old growth forest surrounding us.

Tugaloo State Park in northeast GA is a great park to relax and enjoy a campfire while taking in the great outdoors.
