Help finding campground in GA

We are leaving Friday for a trip in a 31 ft rented RV from NC to AR and back. We plan to go to Dacula GA (east of Atlanta near Lawrenceville) to spend a few days visiting relatives. PROBLEM: I made reservations at Fort Yargo State Park a few weeks ago for this weekend. today I went online to print the reservation and not there. I called the Park reservation system and they said I have a profile in their system but no reservation. (I wouldn't have created a profile unless I made a reservation!)
So now I need to find a campground for 3 nights in close proximity to where I was planning to stay. I have 4 kids (7-10 y/o) and would like something with hookups, trees, lake or river and light hiking.
Any recommendations?! This is our first family RV trip
oh yes.......it has to be open at this time of year!
Thanks!

Hi 5xhappy,
Consider Stone Mountain. It is East of Atlanta. Go to Stone Mountain Park: Georgia theme park and camping in Atlanta for details. The CG is a Passport America park for the first night.

Thanks Gary, I had looked at Stone Mtn but thought it might be too hooked to amusement park instead of nature? My husband and I need a break! with 4 out of 5 kids with us....who am I kidding?!

Also what is a Passport America Park?

Anyone know about Tugaloo State Park?

Thumbs up

Try Indian Springs State Park or Hard Labor State Park. We have stayed at Indian Springs with 2 grand daughters and had a great time. Heard alot of good things about Hard Labor too.

Being retired means you can put off till tomorrow what you could have done today

Twin Lakes RV Park in Cumming, Ga might be an option
You can find them on Woodalls website.

Not a lot of options on that side of Atlanta. I would second Stone Mountian. We have stayed there several times. Lots of things to do, hiking, bicycles, boating, mesuem, tram to top of stone Mountian.

Tugalo State Park is just inside Ga from SC. It would be about an hour to Dacula. Was Fort Yargo full at that time because that would be a convenient spot? Lake Lanier would be ok if you can't get Fort Yargo.

Victoria Bryant is an excellent park just a few mile off I85 north. There is a park named Jones RV which is very functional but just not very pretty but closer than Stone Mt. or SP north.
