Georgia may be “The Peach State”, but the regions found here are vastly different from each other. We’ve already covered RV Camping in Southern Georgia. However, northern Georgia is home to some of the Appalachian Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains, making it much different from its counterpart. Surprisingly, average daily temperatures for northern Georgia in January and February tend to stay in the 50s and 60s and rarely drop below freezing. This can provide excellent RV camping opportunities, even in the winter season. The opportunities are even greater with a Harvest Hosts membership, which provides many camping locations northern Georgia with no camping fees.
