GA's new camping club

Georgia’s New Camping Club Saves Tent Travelers Money

Loyalty Program Offered by Georgia’s State Parks


ATLANTA, March 11, 2013  --  Sleeping under the stars has always been a budget-friendly way to explore the Peach State and enjoy a vacation.  Now Georgia’s State Parks are making the price tag even more appealing by offering a new loyalty program just for tent campers.  GeoCamp club members earn every tenth night of camping for free, and there’s no cost for membership.   

The program includes 38 state parks in Georgia, including Unicoi near Helen, Red Top Mountain on Lake Allatoona, Skidaway Island outside Savannah and Reed Bingham in Adel.  All campgrounds feature hot showers, laundry facilities, grills, picnic tables and space for campfires.  A variety of tent campsites allow guests to choose their amenities, from water and electric hookups right at the site, to more remote “walk-in” sites that afford extra privacy.  Nightly rates average around $15 for primitive sites to $25 for hookup sites.   


“Our new GeoCamp program is a way to thank tent campers who are such great supporters of Georgia’s state parks,” said State Park Director Becky Kelley.  “We want to recognize them for their loyalty and to let them know we value their business.  We also want to spotlight how tent camping can be an affordable way for families to spend spring break and summer vacation.” 


Campers can pick up free membership cards from state park offices.  There’s no time limit to stay nine nights and earn the tenth night free.  GeoCamp is open to tent campers only because Georgia State Parks have a separate loyalty club for RV and camper owners. 


Vacationing in Georgia’s state parks allows outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy fishing, hiking, biking, disc golf, geocaching and beautiful scenery right outside their door.  Most parks offer animal programs, guided nature walks, battle re-enactments, kids crafts, outdoor concerts and many other events throughout the year.  For those who prefer a soft bed rather than a sleeping bag, the parks rent cabins, yurts, lodge rooms and even group facilities.  To learn more, visit or call 1-800-864-7275.
