Camping at General Coffee State Park

We spent the last four days at General Coffee State Park.  We wanted to go camping over Labor Day weekend with the Royal Family – and this was one of the only state parks in the entire state that still had campsites available.

It was AMAZING!  Even though there was a long drive, we had the best time at this incredible park.

B10 helped a Ranger save a turtle, we were able to see baby tortoises being born, we visited the Heritage Farm (a working farm) twice, took nature hikes, let the boys practice building fires, cooked out, tied ropes into fancy knots (even with a pulley system!), had free boiled peanuts, ate Sunday breakfast with the “Friends of General Coffee State Park”, my car broke down and I had to hike over a mile in the PITCH BLACK DARKNESS holding GO (never been so scared in my life…), lots of reading, napping, chasing ducks, fishing, catching bugs and taking pictures.

Lots of pictures!

If you’re ever searching for a park to visit – I highly recommend visiting with Jay L. (the Park Manager), who’s running one of the nicest parks in the state of Georgia.  His staff was awesome and took the time to make our experience top-notch.  I wish we could have thanked them in some monetary way, the park is in danger of losing more staff – the entire Park system is in jeopardy of losing funding.

Bored?  Visit a state park.  It’s inexpensive and one of the best ways to remember how perfect God made this world, just for us.
