Georgia’s state parks are offering a chance to make outdoor getaways even more exciting.
Now through May 25 state park visitors who spend a night in a lodge room, cottage, campground or yurt are automatically entered for a chance to win a Coachmen Spirit of America RV from Mid State RV Center in Byron, Ga., or camping gear from outdoor specialty store REI, according to a news release.
“Spring is the season when people start thinking about outdoor getaways, so we wanted to make it easy for state park visitors to stay overnight and enjoy even more of the great outdoors,” said Sally Winchester, the park system’s marketing and communications manager. “With a wide range of affordable accommodations, we have something to suit every family member, even the family dog.”
The “Get Outdoors Getaway” promotion is part of the state park system’s Get Outdoors Georgia program. Launched in 2008, it encourages citizens to get off the sofa and into the great outdoors. Park visitors will get a chance to tour the travel trailer, win REI camping gear and learn about Georgia’s recreational offerings at family friendly events this spring.
Georgia’s 48 state parks are operated by the Department of Natural Resources and offer 2,476 campsites, 414 lodge rooms, 30 cottages and 12 yurts.
