Atlanta RV Park near MARTA Stop

Greetings! The Syracuse Orange are in the Final Four and I'm going to Atlanta! I would really like to take the rig up for the weekend, but a web search has not found any RV parks that are close in. Is anyone aware of an RV park that's close to a MARTA stop in the Atlanta vicinity? Ideally, one from which I could walk to the MARTA stop. Thanks for any help.

There are no RV parks near a MARTA rail stop in Atlanta. Jones RV Park in Norcross or St. Mountain Park are probably the closest two. Neither would be within walking distance of a MARTA bus stop. Best bets to drive to Indian Creek rail station from Stone Mountain or Doraville from Jones RV Park. Atlanta just isn't an RV destination.

Pretty sure stone mountain is on the marta bus line. Also, there is a Gwinnett county transit parking lot right on the other side of the I-state from jones park. I think there is a transfer from GGC to Marta. Look into it. Also, look into the idea of truck stops or walmarts on the bus routes.

Sorry, meant GCT not GGC

Thanks for the info. I booked a hotel. There is a bus from Stone Mt, but it's about a 40 minute ride just to get to the MARTA station. Not something we want to do at midnight or later.

For bowl games there is RV parking at the dome just across the rr tracks. It's dry camping in a gated parking lot but its within walking distance. Not sure if that's an option?

Good choice on your part. I would be surprised if MARTA had a return bus to Stone Mountain park after midnight. The public transit options around Atlanta are not very good. The rail service is not well designed and the patch work of connecting metro bus services is a joke. It always takes less than half as much time to drive anywhere, assuming you can get there via public transit. Atlanta just doesn't fit a public transit mold.

No RV sites inside the perimeter highway and limited options within an hours drive of down town. Atlanta proper just isn't a RV destination that will support a first class close in RV resort.

Enjoy your visit and food and activities downtown.

Dave

This was the first thing I looked for. The final four is in the Georgia Dome. I'd much rather be right there on the grounds and I'd much rather be in my rig than a hotel room. I looked but couldn't find anything on the Dome website about RV parking at the dome for this event.

Oh, it's coming back to me now! The main parking attendant is a foreigner, about 5 feet tall with a funny walk and an even funnier desire for greased palms. If when calling the GWCC, they are booked, and if its not a big deal, get there early and throw him a 20 and he'll take care of you. I realize this may be a lot considering you've reserved a hotel but I'm sure some will find this info useful. Good luck whichever way you go and have a great time
