Reed Bingham State Park Georgia

After a wonderful but short visit last year to Reed Bingham State Park in Georgia, we decided to return with this park as our destination and spend some time exploring it.

We came primarily to hike, but the variety of activities available impressed us. At the lake, people fished, kayaked, swam at a small, sandy beach area, and picnicked. The park contains seven miles of hiking trails, plus walking along the paved areas across the bridge next to the dam. We walked by another picnic area with a miniature golf course and a children’s playground. The Sunday we arrived families filled the picnic area, so seems to be a popular place locally.

For campers, the campground sites are large and spaced, and we saw a mix of tents, campers, and motorhomes. Electric and water come with the site, and some sites also have a sewer connection. The campground is a fairly open area, most sites are in full sun or partial shade but a few seemed to have shade most of the day. Everything appeared clean and well kept. Georgia makes reservations easy. They use Reserve America so you choose the park and then choose the specific campsite you want.
The weather cooperated for our stay. We drove through some heavy rain to get there, and it threatened rain the entire drive home, but we enjoyed cool mornings and sunny, warm afternoons the entire time we camped.

We loved all the amenities, especially our favorite the hiking trails. More detail on our hikes in the next post.

  1. My family stayed 2 nights at Reed Bingham about 5 years ago and loved it. My daughters especially loved the multiple Gopher Tortoises casually lumbering around the campground. Great photos. Brings back memories! William
