Once a fully wooded lot, it was hand cleared by a gentleman that still lives nearby.

Camp Lee

Was once part of a large tract of land. Loblolly Pines were planted about twenty years ago. There are big areas of pine needles covering the ground.Our Paintball Among the Pines is onsite but not near the camping areas. There is also an aircraft engineering and fabrication facility onsite but again not near the camping area.Learn more about this land:Tent, camper, and RVs are welcomed. You should have as much privacy as you hikers want, it depends on how far back you go. Our place is almost fully wooded so there is plenty of firewood laying around. The property is not mountainous, but has slopping hills. Near Auburn and Lake Martin Pull straight ahead pass the RV on the left, tents to the right and down the road, and campers find a spot. We seldom have two camp groups at the same time.

Blackbird Farm

3 sites · RVs, Tents100 acres · Buena Vista, GA
We are a working aquaponics farm, located in Marion Co Georgia. From maps it shows that we are about 13 miles straight line distance from Columbus Georgia. That would be true if you could drive through Fort Moore, which you can't so in reality we are actually about 35 mins or 23 miles from Columbus. Luckily if you want to experience some of the activities there, the drive is pleasant with very little traffic. Our rush hour consists on average of about 20 cars until you get back in closer to the city. Our campsite sits beyond the gate in front of our small farm/general store. There are rustic bathrooms with hot water, wifi and plenty to do! We encourage you to hike, bike, and explore. Deer, coyotes, wild hogs, and other creatures roam freely. Any pets must stay fully leashed at all times (see below). Our day starts early in the summer as we harvest for market. We make every effort to be very quiet, but the field crops are close to your camp site. We will never run a tractor until after 11am. You may hear the greenhouse fans kick on starting around 9am when the system starts warming up. Pets - Are welcome if contained on a leash at all times. Due to wildlife and our own animals present, we can not allow dogs to roam freely. Even the best pooch can react uncharacteristically to baby goats, not to mention crazy chickens. Bathrooms - are located next to the store and a short walk from your tent site. Site - Is on level ground for tents campers RV vans and more. There is a fire pit, picnic table and water spigot. The water is not well water and comes from the county main water line. There is a main highway leading up to our gate so you do not have to off road to get to the property. We love to give tours and welcome you to explore. We also for full transparency mention we are a working farm, so roosters, tractors, and other chores start early. We however do not make noise up by your site until much later in the morning. We want you to sleep soundly and peacefully.

The best camping near Chewacla State Park guide

Overview

About

Equipped with areas for bike tricks and plenty of hiking trails to explore, Chewacla State Park is the ideal place to live out your Hook fantasies. Rufio would be proud of the surreal bike ramp, and we know Smee himself would enjoy the opportunity to canoe around the waters with his captain in tow. Fish Lake Chewacla for catfish or bass, or keep an eye out for the red fox and turkeys prowling the grounds. Whether you're looking to have an imaginary food fight with the Lost Boys or a real-life one with your best friends, fully equipped kitchens mean you can really cook up a storm. Stay near the grounds or visit some nearby towns for dining and shopping opportunities. The only thing that's missing here is Dustin Hoffman sporting a fake mustache, but one can always dream.

Notable campgrounds

  • Full Hookup Campsites: Equipped with modern amenities for a comfortable stay amid nature.
  • Primitive Camping Sites: For those seeking a more rustic experience, these sites offer a true outdoor adventure.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early, especially if planning to visit during peak seasons or holidays, to ensure availability.
  • Check the park's reservation system regularly for cancellations to snag a last-minute spot.
  • Consider staying mid-week for better chances of securing a campsite as weekends tend to fill up quickly.
  • Explore nearby camping options if Chewacla State Park is fully booked, as the surrounding area offers additional camping opportunities.

When to go

The best time to visit Chewacla State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural scenery is at its peak. Summer offers warm swimming conditions but can be quite hot. Winters are generally mild, though some facilities may have reduced hours or be closed.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast and park alerts for any closures or safety advisories before your visit.
  • Entrance fees apply, and park passes are available for frequent visitors.
  • The park is open from 8:30am to 5pm, so plan your activities within these hours.
  • Non-motorized boats like canoes and kayaks are welcome on the lake, but be prepared to hand-launch from the bank.
  • For a unique overnight experience, consider renting one of the historic CCC-built stone cottages.
