Agreeing on where to go camping can be difficult. We live in Florida, camping year round is possible and there as so many great options close by. But for our first camping trip we chose a state park in Georgia, Reed Bingham State Park. (gastateparks.org/ReedBingham)
This was the perfect option for us to try our camper out. It was not overcrowded. We never felt like we were being trampled over. It was a very clean, well organized park with many options for the whole family. And the restrooms were clean.
The parking space for our camper was generous with a lot of space between us and other campers. There was room for the boys to run and play around, without having to worry about them intruding on other campers’ space.
Things To Do
There were so many things for us to do. We did go in early spring, so the water activities were not in operation, but there were many other things to do during the weekend. The park has a nice children’s playground that both boys enjoyed.
We also enjoyed exploring the hiking trails.
Our family had a great time at this park and getting use to our trailer. We learned a few things along the way. Like, not locking the camper keys in the camper. But if you do, the outside storage access door goes under the queen size bed, which lifts up into the camper. Have the scrawny teenager enter through that outside door, lift up the queen size bed, and bingo you’re in. We also learned that making a cake over a fire is not that simple.
It burned on the bottom and tasted horrible. A Dutch oven was purchased after that.
We will definitely return to this state park in the future. From the peaceful surroundings to the helpful staff, it was a joy to be there.
