Pine Mountain is a really neat little
old-fashioned central Georgia town. Blessed with several local
attractions, the town enjoys quite a lot of tourism.
Pine Mountain RV Park is a great place to stay while visiting
Animal Safari, or
FDR's Little White House, especially with kids. The pool, game room,
playground, and great bike riding result in happy (and exhausted) little
There are two sections of
the campground. The older section is pretty well shaded by large trees,
and the new section is wide-open, but with newly placed shade trees. It
will take a few years for the new trees to do their job. The lack of
trees actually provides a nice big star filled sky at night. The
newer section has nice large pull through concrete sites with dual sewer
The inner roads throughout
the camp were great for bikes and scooters. Campers are careful to drive
slowly when kids are around.
Typically, when visiting this area, the Tribe has camped at
Roosevelt State Park. When the Tribe wanted to attend a
September 2010 event at
Callaway Gardens, and FDR was booked to capacity, so we
Pine Mountain RV Park.
Now, understand, we really love camping at public parks, but
seldom do they have full hook-up
(sewer). Now, with 6 or more people sleeping in the camper,
more than 2-3 nights is more than a challenge. therefore, a
long weekend like this had Pine Mountain RV (with full
hook-up) written all over it.
Some friends with kids
joined us, so we had quite a large tribe while bike-riding and crashing
the awesome saline pool. This is a very nice RV park just based on the
entertainment-for-kids factor. Add a side trip or two to the Wild Animal
Safari Park, the Little White House, FDR State Park ,or Callaway
Gardens, and the kids will be in paradise.
I would like to point out
one interesting gripe turned praise. We're used to camping in heavily
wooded shady areas. This is not the place for that. We complained about
the lack of shade and the fact that the late afternoon sun beat down on
the patio side of the camper. But then, when the sun was setting, we
understood. When the sun had completely set, and the big sky revealed a
part of the Milky Way clearly, we were pleased, very pleased..
On this particular trip, we visited
Wild Animal Safari and
Callaway Gardens for a hot-air balloon festival.

It must be pretty good, because
it made us want to visit. The only thing the page lacks is a
lot of pictures, but I'm picky about that. Making
reservations is a breeze!
Lots of pull through campsites,
full hookups, sort of crowded, but a very nice "RV park".
Don't expect woods and shade. expect a great sunset
(although initially blinding) and a huge night sky. We could
see the Milky Way.
Honestly, while at the campground (when we
Callaway Gardens), we spent most of our time at the
campsite, pool, and playground. From what I understand, they
have numerous activities here. We were entertained by the
hot-air balloons launched from Callaway Gardens on Labor Day
Not a huge pool, but a very nice clean pool.
There is also a small wading pool for the little guys, and a
hot tub for the bigger guys.
There is a very nice playground. Not large,
but covered. It sure makes for some nice shade or shelter
from a sprinkle while the kids play.
You could easily spend a week or two here and never be
bored. There is
FDR State Park,
Wild Animal Safari,
FDR Little White House, and more.
