Camp South RV Park is owned and built by Jeremy and Wendy Salter. Jeremy is a telephone technician and enjoys the outdoors. Wendy is a counselor and a children’s book writer (www.wendy-salter.com).
The land Camp South was built is on the family farm. In fact, five generations of Wendy’s family have farmed and lived on this property. For well over 100 years, soybeans, cotton, corn, tobacco and pine trees have been farmed here – – first with mules and later with tractors. Some of the original farm equipment is on site. In fact, Camp South is a member of Georgia Grown as a heritage farm stay.
Surrounded on all sides by pecan orchards, planted pines, cotton fields, and sunflower patches, you can join us for hayrides through the countryside in the fall.
You are invited to enjoy a farm stay with us. Plant, weed, water and pick a few herbs & vegetables from our garden to enjoy.
You can make friends with Suzy the Pygmy Goat, Skittles the Welch Pony, several varieties of ducks and chickens during your stay with us.
Stretch your legs and enjoy a stroll on paths through our woods. We have a variety of native trees and plants.
You will also see and hear a medley of birds on your walk as we are proud to say a variety of wild birds call Camp South home. We provide gourds, birdhouses, bird feeders, natural vegetation and fresh water for them to drink.
Take a tour of our grain bin pavilions. Our genuine grain bins once stored corn on the other side of Candler County. We took them down, moved them to Camp South, and gave them new life by transforming them into open-air pavilions scattered throughout the park. Now you and your family can gather in the shade to picnic or build campfire.
You will also find a genuine syrup bowl, and can browse the farm equipment we have on display – – most of which was used on the farm.
Traveling with your children? Your kids can also enjoy our playground. Or you can feed the ducks some popcorn or bread crumbs or you can fish in the pond together. Our pond is stocked with bream fish who find crickets irresistible.
Traveling with your dogs? We welcome dogs on leashes with up-to-date vaccine records. Take them for a walk on the nature trails, or enjoy our large dog park. Safe pets welcome for free, but MUST be on a leash and be vaccinated. You can email a copy of your vaccination records with you name and reservation dates.
