Recommend campground near Augusta

I'm thinking about visiting the area around Augusta in late February. I can see there are several state parks and also some private parks. I'm wondering if anyone local has a specific recommendation. I do have two dogs so I like to have areas to walk them and I have a small RV.

Hi Vaneta,

I apologize this is a late response, but if you intend on driving in and out of Augusta, the most convenient campground is Petersburg. My family stays there all the time. It's very nice, clean, has good views of the lake and the 18.5 mile Bartram trail runs right through it. If you haven't left on your trip yet, be sure to check it out.
