I've never stayed there, but it's not at all close to Atlanta. About 3 hours south of the city on I75.

We sometimes use Cecil Bay as an overnight on our way to/from our winter home in FL. It is clean, has level sites, easy access, reasonable cost, but certainly not what I would call a resort. As others have said, this is a long way from Atlanta.

When traveling through Atlanta, we try to time things so we are as far away from the city as possible before stopping for the night. Through the years we have tried, I think, nearly every available space near the city and have found none we would go back to unless we had no choice.

Stone Mtn.

Try Stone Mtn. Park. Just check the sites beforehand, some are great, some not so good, but, overall nice. Expensive but close to downtown.

Last time we looked Stone Mountain had a two night minimum. Has this changed?

We tried High Falls State Park, which is less than an hour from ATL, south off I75. There are a few newer pull-thru sites with 50 amp and water, no sewer. There was a dump station on the way out.
It was nice, but we were only there once in early spring when it was not crowded.

Reservations require 2 night stay. Walk-in's can stay one night...just call ahead for availability. Generally, plenty of open sites in the off-season (except for U. of GA home football weekends)

For an overnight near Atlanta we have used the KOA at Forsyth and Atlanta South RV Resort. Both are right off I-75 and adequate for an overnight stop.

I have also stayed at Atlanta South RV Resort. I wouldn't call it a resort, but it was adequate for an overnight stop. I've read some negative reviews of it, but when I stayed there it was ok.

We ended up staying at Stone Mountain. Nice park but site was kind of iffy. It worked out but we checked in in the dark and had a tight squeeze to get to our site. On the way back we stayed at KOA Lookout Mountain. Much easier to get in and out of.

We enjoyed staying at Stone Mtn in our 35' Class A. Wasn't difficult to get into, but we arrived in daylight.

Hi HoleInOne,
An overnight stay near the beltway and off of I85 (North East of Atlanta) is Jones RV Park. Go to Jones RV Park - Home and take a look. This is a place to park for an overnight sleep.
