Glamping enthusiasts are fortunate to have a wide choice of great camping/glamping facilities in some of the most beautiful outdoor recreational areas of Georgia. To begin with, several of the most scenic state parks have responded to the glamping trend by offering basic yurts, usually nestled along a lake shore or tucked into a serene forest setting. These sleep up to 6 guests and are ideal for adventurous families. At the other end of the scale there are wonderfully romantic glamping options for couples seeking an intimate retreat – these include a stunning safari-tent on a private island (Little Raccoon Key) or a lofty tree house with whirlpool tub (Historic Banning Mills). CDC information for travelers. Hours/availability may have changed.
