|Historic Banning Mills RV Camping Center|
Looking for some peace and quiet but with a hint of adventure?
It's always beautiful Here!!
Banning Mills RV and Camping Park is located in North Georgia’s own unique Hidden Snake Creek Gorge: 45 minutes West of Atlanta’s Hartsfield airport. We are about 19 miles off I-20 and about 15 miles from I-85. Our RV Park is wooded with graveled sites and a gate guarded entrance. We have full and partial hookups and several amenities to include swimming pool (In season), mini golf, horseshoes, catch and release fishing lake (bring your own gear and bait), paddle boats and hiking. We have two bath houses and laundry facilities. Most sites have free internet capability.
We are currently only taking RV site reservations IF our guests also make adventure trek or zipline canopy tour reservations. This is due to our current, limited space availability.
If you love a natural rural feel to your RV park, we are the place for you. The beautiful hiking trails, history, adventure opportunities and the feeling of being off the beaten track is what we offer. If you like concrete facilities with paving as far as the eye can see, sites on top of each other, and excessive manicured landscaping, you will not like us.
We are NOT the Hilton RV Park! Please consider this BEFORE you make a reservation.
Please note that pools are opened the last weekend in May and closed in September!
Need a little more adventure?
Try out one of the longest and highest zip line canopy tours in the world……on site at Banning Mills! There is horseback riding, kayaking treks and team building low and high ropes courses, Our new Power Drop Free Fall, Climbing and Rappel Walls available too. And if you need some extra relaxation, don’t forget the Day Spa for massages and facials.
Our adventure opportunities and Day Spa stay busy, so please remember that you will need TO MAKE advanced reservations for these type activities. There are certain restrictions on some of the adventure treks so please either call us or browse our website for more details and pricing.
The Country Inn side of the park is located on the opposite side of the gorge. Although Banning Mills Inn does not have an open restaurant, breakfast is served most every day and you may eat in the dining area with advanced reservations. Many times, the Inn will have the chef on site preparing meals for groups. You may also make reservations for lunch and dinner with advanced reservations as a “tag on” to these meals.
The Inn side also has a small history museum that you can visit and find out more about the now ghost town of Banning Mills. The main lodge at the Inn is a short drive from the RV sites. You can hike to the lodge also!
