FDR State Park and Campground
Spacious Wood and Lake View Camping
The campground was very clean, lot sizes were reasonable, a number of small play grounds, water craft rentals, and several large bath houses The sites have water and electric with some having both 30 amp and 50 amp hookup. No sewer, but a large dump station is located at the back entrance leaving the campground. The roads are paved and the lots were graveled and level. All sites had picnic tables and fire rings and most had large spaces in between. There were a mix of back-in and pull-through sites and we saw a wide range of campers from tents to large 40 foot or larger 5th wheels and class A’s.
We arrive around 2:30PM on a Sunday with reservations. Good news, with the State of Georgia’s new reservation system, you can view the campground map and reserve your space. Reservations are recommended during the busier vacation periods, with the 100+ campground sites filling up quickly.
Hiking, Biking and So Much More
This is a great area to tour and hike. The Pine Mountain Trails are minutes away offering over 40 miles of trails along with primitive camping for those overnight jaunts. The valley views from the Pine Mountain Ridge are fantastic. There’s much to do around the Park. Summer months provide a large swimming pool and picnic area, horseback riding, also within a 10 minute drive is The Little White House in Warm Springs, GA. This is well worth the small fee to tour and history buffs will have a field day. The little town Warm Springs is nearby with shops and a few eateries.
Nearby Pine Mountain, GA
Also 5 minutes east of the campground back entrance lies the town of Pine Mountain. Grocery stores, hardware, Dollar “whatever” were available along with an excellent Mexican restaurant, Oyster House, Fox Pizza (yummy) and others . And a destination into itself, Callaway Gardens offers golf, water recreation, hiking and biking, garden tours, and my favorite, the butterfly house.
This is a great campground to spend a long weekend or just soak up all the area has to offer for an extended 14 day stay.
