Campgrounds in Lake Jackson, Georgia
Lake Jackson, Georgia, is filled with opportunities for outdoor recreation and appreciation. Nestled right up against Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, Lake Jackson provides the perfect jumping-off location for an adventure into the Chattahoochee River valley. Camping options are plentiful--both in the park and out--so tenters and RVers need only worry about their hiking and rafting itinerary.

Marietta Campground

Marietta Campground, located about 10 miles from Lake Jackson, is only a short drive to both the shoreline and the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area. The campground caters to primitive campers and mostly has tent pads and tent sites for short-term stays. The facilities include restroom and running water. But don't spend all day in your tent site; make sure to get out and go visit any of the following: Red Top Mountain State Park, Sope Creek or Sweetwater Creek State Park.
