We happened upon Seminole State Park and Campground in late August. We were driving through Southwest Georgia on our trek out West. It was a van lifers paradise! The park is set back from the main road and there is about a mile and a half ride into the park that has a cool eerie swamp feel to it. There were Alligator warning signs all over but luckily, we didn’t see any.
Passing through the guard shack, you’re greeted with a giant tributary of the beautiful Lake Seminole. The grounds were well maintained, and we saw a lot of people out on boats and tubing. On the far side of the lake, they have small lakefront cottages also available. There is an option for dry camping or full hookups with 30/50 amp power. We opted for hookups because of the convenience and price.
Each site had a picnic table and fire pit with a grill which made it super homey. The playground was lakeside and epic, and we all had a lot of fun on the swings by the lake.
There were 3 very clean bathrooms with private showers and laundry facilities on the property which was perfect for us because we needed to do laundry desperately.
There is a medium sized beach area to swim in that was roped off from the rest of the waterway with sand to play in. There are great nature trails to walk on and we definitely recommend bringing your fishing poles if you fish! We had such a pleasant and peaceful evening and we even made friends with the campers at the site next to ours. If you’re looking for a clean, safe and fun place to park, this park is perfect as you pass through Donalsonville Georgia.
