Your Key to Smooth



As luck would have it, in addition to being amazing at event planning and camping, we are also amazing at reading minds. 
You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.
1. Are there showers and bathrooms available?

Yes, nice restrooms are on-site and plentiful. And we will have a cleaning service to keep them nice and tidy.

2. I'm new to camping, can I still come if it's my first time?

Yes, it's for All campers, both old and new. This will be a great time to make new camp cousins and visit with the ones you already know

3. What is the difference between a premium tent site and dry tent?

Dry tent means that you bring your own water and electricity (power bank, no generators). No worries, it's easy and the great news is that if you are tent camping, you probably already have all the items you need around your house.

4. Are generators allowed?

No generators, but feel free to bring your power banks or other quiet solar options.

5. Are there refunds? How do transfers work?

All deposits and payments are non-refundable. Please consider adding the purchase protection option to your ticket for that added assurance. In addition, you can transfer your package to another person. Transfers and name changes are $35 per transfer.

Log-in to your registrant account to make all transfers.

***Any changes made to the reservation through email/phone will incur a $45 fee.***

6. Campground Address

For security reasons, we only disclose the address to paid registrants. That said it's located in Central GA, less than 2.5 hours from Atlanta.

7. What airport should I fly into to get to the campground?

The nearest major airport is Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL / KATL), which has international and domestic flights from Atlanta, Georgia and is 2.5 hours from Cordele, GA.

8. Where do I park?

One parking passis included with each package. Additional passes can be added on for $25 per space. All vehicles will be parked in the designated areas.

**Cabins have 2 parking passes included.

9. Can I bring or rent my own RV?

Yes, you can bring your own RV.

10. Are meals included?

You are welcome to bring your food. There are plenty of community fire pits and you are welcome to bring a grill. Restaurants are also located 15-20 minutes from the campground. And starting at 5 pm there is an on-site restaurant available.

11. Is there security?

Your safety is important to us so we hire security officers for the camping event.
