GENERAL COFFEE STATE PARK, GA
11 September, 2004. State Parks are oftentimes nicer than federal campgrounds but on the east coast, they rarely offer any significant discount with the Golden Access Pass (if any). This place cost us the full $20 but it was worth it. It was nice to feel safe after staying in the Oceola National Forest. An armadillo scurried past our site- I almost forgot how many armadillos there are across the country. They are so much more welcome than raccoons, bears or snakes. We got a full internet signal here so I was able to do email. We plugged in the air conditioner and both of us got our first good night's sleep in weeks. There were no barking dogs or screaming people (the adults can scream just as much as the kids at some of these places). It was uneventful but we enjoyed the quiet.
