If landmarks steeped in rich history are what you seek, Kolomoki Mounds State Historic Park in Georgia is a destination you need to check out. Discover how the first people of the nation lived at the largest temple mound in this part of the country. There are also burial and ceremonial mounds all from the indigenous people who lived on these lands over 1,600 years ago.
While you learn about the country's roots, you and your canine compadre can stay at the campground found inside the park. Here, you will find 25 campsites, each with a picnic table and fire ring and most offering electric hookups for RVs. Sites start at $26 per night, in addition to a one-time ParkPass fee of $5 per vehicle for overnight visitors. Drinking water is provided and a dump station is accessible on the premises.
During your stay, get in touch with this land heralded as sacred and see why it has been coveted for millennia. The park sits where the Chattahoochee Ravines meet the Dougherty Plains, creating terrain unlike anywhere else. Grab your pooch and get hiking on one of the many trails or hang out by one of the lakes and partake in some fishing, canoeing, or kayaking on the water. There is a playground in the park for young campers as well as mini-putt and pedal boats.
Four-legged visitors are welcome here as long as they are kept on a standard 6-foot leash throughout their stay. To make sure that pooches continue to be allowed at this historic site, be sure to clean up after your woofer promptly and properly while at the park. Also, never leave your pup unattended at your campsite. Be aware of any posted signs barring your mutt from entering certain areas at Kolomoki Mounds or nearby Lake Kolomoki.
