Vogel State Park RV & Campground Guide


In the midst of the Chattahoochee National Forest, Vogel State Park’s plentiful trees make it a one-of-a-kind place to visit during the fall. The gorgeous autumn colors are a treat you won’t soon forget! Go hiking, swimming, or fishing in the mountains at one of Georgia’s oldest state parks. Plentiful hiking takes you by waterfalls, lakes, mountains, and other scenic views. The park was developed in large part by the Civilian Conservation Corps and you can learn more about those contributions while you’re there as well. 

The weather does get down into the 20s in winter (you’re in the mountains, after all!) and doesn’t get uncomfortably hot in summer - topping out in the low 80s. It rains about a week a month, with slightly more rain in spring than the rest of the year.
