« Last Day, Last Sunset ... Farewell Welaka - (Welaka, FL) | Main | Cumberland Island National Seashore - (St. Mary's, GA) »

We were at Crooked River 3 years ago. The rangers there are the epitome of "Southern Hospitality". They alone are an "it" factor. The gnats, well, that is a whole 'nother story.

Welcome to Georgia! Ricky and I live in Griffin, just about 40 mi. south of Atlanta and about five minutes from the Atlanta Motor Speedway. We love our Park System and have heard from lots of out of state folks that Georgia has the best park system ever. Skidaway Island just outside of Savannah is another great park just north of you. Cross over into SC and Hunting Island is right on the beach. We had a view of the beach and ocean from the back of our rig, site 37. Watch the roads inside that side of the park, sharp turns and a couple of palm trees you could hang up on. Our fifth wheel is 39 ft. long, we did fine. Another person wasn't so lucky. They got hung coming in late at night and did significant damage to their rig. They had to stay there until morning and needed a backhoe to pull the tree off of the camper. Anyway, have a great time. Oh yeah, it's much better to visit South Georgia in the cooler months when the bugs are out! Laurie and Odell of Semi-True Tales of our Life on the Road is in your area also. Safe travels and hope the rally is the best ever!

That looks like a very nice cg, and not too far from us.

Love the bird blind and you took some great pictures.

We're jealous!

I second what Tresa said about Hunting Island and Skidaway State Parks. We stayed at both of them on our trip south this years. Like you and Linda, we love the state park systems across the country. They have that rustic, natural feel, and they are generally a good bargain.

Once again, we really enjoyed spending time with you at Welaka in Feb. That is a very nice little park tucked away along the beautiful St. Johns River.
