    Hi All-

    Checking in from Peachtree Corners, GA!

    We are a family of 6 in search of our first pop-up camper.

    My husband grew up tent camping with the scouts, and I grew up pop-up camping with my parents and little brother in a 198? Coleman Columbia.

    We’ve been tent-camping with our four children (ages 10, 8, 5, and 3) for the last 2 1/2 years or so, and after our last trip where it rained A LOT and the tent AND the van-top storage bag leaked AND our little heater we use at night died in 30ish degree weather, we decided it’s time to upgrade.

    We try to camp about one weekend a month when the weather is bearable, and we are currently working our way through all the GA state parks. Hoping a pop-up with heat and a/c will help us extend our season. Also looking forward to maybe a trip out West this summer...

    My husband and dad are out looking at a 99 Starcraft Galaxy right now that looks very promising— wish us luck!

    Y’all’s advice and information you’ve shared on here has already been a tremendous help to us— so thank you!

    Welcome from N/W Fl Panhandle. I hope you find the exact PUP that will fulfill your wants and needs. Ga has some great state parks, Be sure and check out Laura Walker SP just outside Waycross and across the street is the Okefenokee swamp and be sure and see this too. Good Luck in the search and Happy Camping

    Welcome from an hour or so north in Dawson County! We're also relatively new to the PUP community, but I can't think of a better place to learn all the little essentials.

    My grandson (who was 7 at the time) and I have tent-camped in below-freezing temps, but a popup gives the option of including the entire family (and having minor detail things like heat, water, lights, etc). Best of luck in your search!

    Thank you! Stephen C. Foster State Park is one of my absolute favorites-- right in the middle of the Okefenokee. So gorgeous!

    Thank you! I've been to Clayton many times-- my parents favorite place to camp is Black Rock Mountain State Park, so we went there a lot growing up. Love the Foxfire museum there!
