I 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:
- 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, when you pay the regular camping rate, you can use camping gear borrowed from REI & Coleman (a six-person tent, four sleeping pads, two chairs, camp stove & more). Though you’re borrowing a bunch of gear, be sure to bring your own sleeping bag or blanket & a pillow.
- From May 28-31, 2018, you can take advantage of Memorial Day deals. At state parks with lodges, you can use promo code “CAMP40” to save 40% on camping or “20OFF” to save 20% on cottage or lodge rooms (excluding George T Bagby State Park). At other state parks, coupon code “MEM18” saves you 40% on camping (excluding group camps & excluding Moccasin Creek State Park) or 20% off cottages, camper cabins & yurts (excluding Laura Walker, Crooked River and General Coffee State Parks)
- 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.
