Take a trip to Georgia and discover the Tallulah Gorge, an incredible canyon that plummets almost 1,000 feet deep! To let visitors truly experience the wonders of the gorge, a suspension bridge swings across the two sides of the formation. Camp in the surrounding forest to explore all that this amazing area has to offer.
The Tallulah Gorge State Park campground provides 56 campsites to choose from, many of which have electric hookups. These sites start at $20 a night and an additional ParkPass (costing $5) is required for any vehicle entering the facility. Laundry services and a dump station can be found on-site as well as a rentable picnic shelter. You'll also have access to the visitors center along with gift shops for grabbing some souvenirs from your travels.
While in the park, there is so much to see and do! Hike down at the bottom of the gorge and take in 5 different waterfalls on the Tallulah River. Or take your pooch for a hike along the rim of the gorge and the forests that are around it. Rock climbing up the gorge wall is allowed in certain parts, as is kayaking down the river below. Note that only 100 permits are issued each day to access the gorge floor, and puppers are not allowed to join you on this trek.
The campground is canine-friendly as long as your furry friend stays on-leash through their stay. To keep dogs welcome on these grounds, be sure to promptly and properly clean up after your pup. Before venturing out on any hikes, check with management to verify which trails permit pooches and which ones ask that your doggo stays back at the site (attended, of course!).
If you'd like to see this amazing natural feature for yourself, be sure to add the Tallulah Gorge State Park to your camping trip list.
