  2. Bobby Agner says:

    Is the campground open

    • HI Bobby,
      It appears that Petersburg campground is closed for camping. Georgia State Parks are open, but with limited services and availability. You may try calling Petersburg campground directly to check on status: 706-541-9464.

  3. Is Petersburg open to explore the area right now? We were wanting to drive there just for the day

  4. Tammy Gray says:

    We are trying to get some information about booking a group of sites and hosting a wedding. We would like to know if this is permitted within the camp ground. We have tried to call and there is no one available to talk through details.

  5. Gary Cartee says:

    Is the campground open currently for overnight camping?
