Looking for a laid-back, Fido-friendly campground for your Georgia outdoor getaway? Well look no fur-ther than Seminole State Park! Located just outside the small town of Donalsonville and perched on the shores of the gorgeous Lake Seminole, a stay here doesn’t require you to sacrifice all of your creature comforts. Electricity and water hookups are available, the campground features hot showers and flushing toilets, and the playground should keep non-furry family members entertained (for at least ten minutes).
The scenery isn’t bad, either! The campground is well shaded by mature, coniferous trees, and 16 sites have stunning waterside views. The area even smells good -- the lodgepole pines release a subtle but pleasant scent. Not only are there 47 tent and RV sites, but there are also 14 two-bedroom cottages available to book, some of which are dog-friendly. You can even camp in a treehouse, but your pup will have to keep all feet on the ground. Primitive (non-electric) camping starts at $20, a hook-up site costs $30 per night, a cottage rental will set you back $165, and you can stay in a treehouse for $25. Sites fill up quickly, so it’s best to make your reservation early.
You and your buddy are sure to sniff out something to do in Seminole State Park! If casting a line is your idea of a good time, you’ll be glad to know that Lake Seminole provides ample opportunities for anglers. There's also a boat ramp and a sandy beach, but your pooch will need to stay on dry land. Seminole doesn’t offer much for serious hound-dog hikers, but the two-mile nature trail is still worth a wander. Cultured canines might also get a kick out of a visit to nearby Kolokomi Mounds, which features Georgia’s oldest prehistoric temple mound.
WiFi isn’t available at Seminole State Park, and cellular coverage varies from network to network. Fires are permitted, and drinking water is available on-site. Remember to bring waste bags for your four-pawed pal, and have a pawesome time!
