If you’re looking for a Fido-friendly Georgia campground surrounded by some of the best unspoiled nature that the Peach State has to offer, Chattahoochee Bend State Park might be the paw-fect place for you two to pitch your tent! You won’t have to sacrifice too many of your creature comforts during your stay, either -- the campgrounds have access to electricity, water hookups for your RV, a dump station and showers. You’ll also find a camp store on-site, so there’s no need to sacrifice precious luggage space on provisions!
Not only that, but the campground is in a seriously pretty spot, surrounded by wooded wonderland and just a bone’s throw away from the river. Unfortunately, there aren’t any sites with waterfront views, but you’ll still be treated to the calming sound of the water as you and your pooch drift off to sleep.
Chattahoochee Bend also offers many ways to stay! For a true wilderness experience, check out the hike-in, backcountry campsites. Hook-up campsites are available for RVs of most sizes -- some up to 15 feet, some up to 40 feet. Adirondacks (lean-tos) can be reserved, and the park also has several cabins, one of which is pet-friendly. The preserve is understandably paw-pular, so it’s best to make your reservation early, particularly if you’ll need to stay at one of Chattahoochee’s accessible sites. There’s a $5 per day parking fee, and sites start at $17.
You and your pooch shouldn’t be too long sniffing out something to do during your stay! The park’s 12 miles of trails are sure to keep hound-dog hikers entertained. There’s not much on offer for four-pawed fitness freaks, but laid-back lapdogs might enjoy a stroll on the level yet spectacularly scenic Chattahoochee Bend River Trail. The river also provides plenty of op-paw-tunities for keen anglers.
WiFi isn’t available at Chattahoochee Bend, but most cellular networks should receive decent coverage. Fires are permitted, and you’ll find water available on-site. Remember to bring waste bags for your doggo, and have a pawesome time!
