Farm life meets the great outdoors at General Coffee State Park in Georgia. This park was named after military man General John Coffee, who also spent some time in politics while working as a planter. The area is a history buff's delight as it proudly displays Heritage Farm, complete with animals and various exhibits, and it features 19th-century styled lodging for those that prefer fancier accommodations.
The campground section of the park offers 58 campsites including primitive, equestrian, and electric. There are 4 cottages available to rent and one of them is pup-friendly, provided that you bring no more than two dogs and pay a $50 fee per trip. Each vehicle that enters the park must purchase a $5 ParkPass which is valid for the entirety of your stay while camping. The sites start at $12, and prices increase based on size and extra features. Each lot comes with a standard picnic table and campfire ring (the park asks that all fires be kept inside these rings). Wifi is accessible but only at the park office.
While at General Coffee State Park, you'll have lots of fun things to partake in. Patrons may visit the many farm animals that live on-site and children are allowed to feed the animals. A playground is also on the property to give kiddos extra activities to burn their energy. Be sure to bring your pooch for a hike on one of the many trails that run through this park, which are also quite popular among horseback riders. If you're here with friends, there is a group shelter that can seat up to 180 people along with an amphitheater available for rent.
Canines are welcome at General Coffee State Park as long as they remain on a 6-foot leash throughout their stay. Dogs may only stay at the cottage marked as "dog-friendly" and may not enter any other buildings or the posted swimming areas. The park asks that you clean up all of your woofer's bathroom breaks during your stay and never leave your fur-buddy unattended.
