Planning to go camping over Memorial Day weekend? You might not have much luck with securing accommodations at a state park! Kim Hatcher, the Public Affairs Coordinator for Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites, asserts that most accommodations are full for this year, but now is a good time to go ahead and make reservations for ’22. Options include campsites, cabins, and yurts.
Hatcher indicates that state parks experienced a surge of visitors last year as a host of Georgians sought refuge in the great outdoors amid the coronavirus pandemic. She adds that the best bet for summer camping in ’21 is to secure those reservations for weekdays and at a lesser known park.
High temperatures in North Georgia are anticipated to soar into the 90s over the weekend and into next week. Hatcher attests that residents can cool down at a state park! Many of these parks have lakes with swimming beaches and offer recreational opportunities to include kayaking, paddleboarding, boating, and fishing.
