Georgias new camping club saves tent travelers money
Placeholder Image

Georgia’s State Parks are offering a new loyalty program just for tent campers. GeoCamp club members earn every 10th night of camping for free, and there’s no cost for membership.

The program includes 38 state parks in Georgia, including Unicoi near Helen. All campgrounds feature hot showers, laundry facilities, grills, picnic tables and space for campfires.

A variety of tent campsites allow guests to choose their amenities, from water and electric hookups right at the site, to more remote “walk-in” sites that afford extra privacy. Nightly rates average around $15 for primitive sites to $25 for hookup sites.

“Our new GeoCamp program is a way to thank tent campers who are such great supporters of Georgia’s state parks,” State Park Director Becky Kelley said. “We want to recognize them for their loyalty and to let them know we value their business. We also want to spotlight how tent camping can be an affordable way for families to spend spring break and summer vacation.”

Campers can pick up free membership cards from state park offices. There’s no time limit to stay nine nights and earn the 10th night free. GeoCamp is open to tent campers only; Georgia has a separate loyalty club for RV and camper owners. To learn more, visit or call 800-864-7275.
