first time camper gaI may need to take advantage of one of these deals…I’m in the mood to go hiking, & the weather is gorgeous.

If you want to get out & explore, you’ve got a few ways check out Georgia’s State Parks on the cheap:

  • September 27, 2014, is Your State Parks Day; you’ll get free parking at state parks + free admission to Georgia’s state historic sites. FYI–There are dozens of volunteer opportunities available, too, from trail maintenance to assembling picnic tables, making it easy to give back while you’re there.
  • Got a library card? With the Library Loan Program, you can check out a ParkPass or Historic Site pass from your local library, giving you free access to Georgia’s state parks and state historic sites.
  • With the First-Time Camper program, $50 gets you two nights in a modern campground, including camping gear borrowed from REI (a six-person tent, four sleeping pads, two chairs, camp stove and more), a Camping 101 lesson, and coupons for your next adventure.
  • Parking is $5 daily, or you can purchase an annual ParkPass for $50. The ParkPass is valid at all Georgia state parks. Seniors (age 62+) save 50% on the annual ParkPass. Disabled veterans who are Georgia residents AND present a Certificate of Eligibility card as well as active duty and retired military who are Georgia residents will receive a 25% discount on annual ParkPasses.
