Your State and National Parks
We have found that State Parks are some of the best bargains for lodging, in most cases, when making a Dam or other Quest. Not to mention that the parks themselves have a lot to offer Our favorite is Desoto State Park, an Alabama park near Fort Payne, AL. But we have found quite a few that give it a run for its money. In fact, we have only been disappointed once, and even then it could not be classified as a bad experience.
We will develop this page as we visit new parks. Your tax dollars support these parks, you should enjoy them! But don't take our word for it, check them out yourselves. Here are links to the sites for State Parks of Georgia and the surrounding states:
