Just got back from a short trip to the Smoky Mountains. We spent two nights at Vogel State Park in northern Georgia and it has got to be one of the nicest parks I have been to in a long time. It is the largest and second oldest state park in Georgia. The grounds are very clean and the people are very nice. They have a daily schedule of activities for the kids, put-put golf (small), sandy swimming beach, paddle boats, volleyball, playground, hiking trails for all ages and a very nice little 20-acre lake with its own waterfall. I think they have over a one hundred camping sites. Some of them are so far back in the woods, the sun never gets to you. The prices at the general store/office were very reasonable. Not any higher than at the grocery store. They have about 500,000 people come through the park annually, so make reservations early. I really enjoyed it there. If you are wanting to check out Georgia state parks, here is a link www.gastateparks.org And don't forget, if you're from Texas, as I am, don't go just jumping into the water. It's COLD!
