Atlanta & Georgia Glamping


Pretty much all intown parks have strictly designated opening and closing times posted, so camping isn’t really an option, per se …. Although, in most cases, you’ll find that there isn’t anyone there to shoo you away. For the intrepid outdoorsman, Georgia is known across the country as home to several top-notch camping spots that lie just beyond the Perimeter. And if roughing it in the great outdoors ain’t your thing, glamping in the area is off the charts — that is, camping with accommodation and facilities that are a bit more luxurious than a traditional tent, including electricity, air conditioning, running water, and so on. Glamping generally comes with a price tag, and requires a reservation. Airbnb seems to be a particularly trustworthy source for creative new glamping spots. The following is a list of popular camping and glamping locales for whatever your ideal experience may be.
