We left for Reed Bingham State Park in Adel, GA almost one month ago for the first leg of an eight-day, three park RV trip. We started early Sunday morning, stopped for one or two rest breaks, and arrived less than six hours later. All the trip planners we used predicted a 7 – 8 hour drive.
We checked in at the ranger station/store. Though early, the site we reserved was ready so we were able to get settled immediately. We found the camping area beautiful, with space and vegetation between most sites. Our site included a bit more privacy and shade, both very welcome. Reserving a specific site is a newer feature, within the last year or so, of the Georgia State Parks and we love it.
We explored the park, and used it as a base to check out the area including a trip to Thomasville, GA. The weather stayed beautiful, we loved the park, and hope to return in the near future.
Naturally we kept up with the news about the corona virus, which escalated the entire week we were gone. In those beautiful, natural surroundings the news almost seemed surreal and very far away though we knew better. By our last day there, as all of us walked or hiked, the distance we left between each other lengthened. We left for our next stop, Stephen Foster, GA, early on Wednesday morning.
