Talking Social Distance camping

Well.... we're going camping. Leaving out Monday (maybe Sunday)
A little campground about 100 miles from us but still in North GA. With full hookups so we can maintain our distance (the bathhouse is closed anyway). It's our favorite spot, we've been there many, many times.
We're gonna set-up by the pond, gonna stay a week and do some grillin', chillin' and a little fishin'. I am so looking forward to the campfire and the crickets.

Alan

Which campground you headed to? I live in TN, my sister in S. GA so we sometimes look for places we can meet up half-way.

Long Ridge Campground. Just outside Hiawassee GA. https://www.longridgecampground.com/
It's small, friendly and very nice. Tucked up into the top of a hollow with trees and a pond. The owners are really the greatest. Tell 'em Alan and Penny sent ya.

APD, is that short for Atl. Police, say it and had to ask, I am ex/retired LEO myself, I looked at Lone Ridge Campground, looks really nice, is there a list of camp grounds like this in Ga. I have been limited to COE grounds and like the private sites better, Thanks

No APD is my initials. Not a retired LEO but I have rode a few miles in a police car, couldn't see out very well from back there..
LOL

Long Ridge is very quiet and serene place. No pool, no playground just the NGA woods. Not everyone's cup of tea but we make our own "peaceful" fun so it suits us.
I'm not aware of a decent listing of private CG's in GA. I usually look on Google maps for a place I wanna go then choose the "nearby" button to look for a campground that's close by.
Besides Long Ridge we like Country Oaks near St Mary's on the other end of the state. And there's lot's in between.
We are lucky to live in Georgia with some of the most beautiful state parks in the world and a great website to help choose.
We are "shunpikers" and avoid interstate's like a virus. We love us some backroads and that affects our camping choices and our likes and dislikes.

Raining here....
That rain on the camper roof is telling me it's time for a nice little nappy..
For those who are not camping, here's the next best:

We decided to camp a ways up the hollar from the pond. It was a peaceful and relaxing week in the mountains.....

We're going again. This Sunday we're going to a state park nearby (about 100 miles) for three days or so. Was really surprised at the booking page! The state parks here are doing a booming business. The site we wanted only had three nights available!
Unfortunately, we are taking the campervan this trip as I wanted to try out a new shower. But we are gonna scout for the next FF trip while we're in the mountains.
