The Top Five Family Friendly Campgrounds in the Southeast

family friendly campgrounds

Traditional camping is characteristically family friendly. This article isn’t about campgrounds that you can just bring your family to. It’s about top-tier, best of the best, family oriented campgrounds. To make this list, parks had to be more than merely safe and quiet. They had to more amenities for both children and adults than anywhere else in the area.

The Best Family Friendly Campgrounds in the Southeast

  • Pirateland Family Camping Resort (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina) – The on site water park at this campground includes a lazy river, a 5,000 square-foot Pirate Ship Splash Pool, and an Olympic-sized pool. It also offers services at its chapel, provides summer recreation programs, and a playground.
  • Enota RV Campground (Hiawassee, Georgia) – There are four waterfalls and five streams on-site, but this campground’s natural luxuries are just the beginning. It also offers a spa and wellness center, an organic garden and farm, a lodge complete with a huge stone fireplace, and a fair-trade gift shop. There’s more to do here than you’ll have time for.
  • Cajun Palms RV Resort (Henderson, Louisiana) – This campground near New Orleans provides every amenity a family could want. It has a swim up tiki bar for the parents and a train ride for the kids. Poker for the parents and arts & crafts for the kids. An adults-only jacuzzi for the parents and an arcade for the kids. And for everyone, it has a huge movie theater that can seat over 50 people!

Roasting s’mores, looking at stars, and sleeping in tents–these are memories kids hold on to for the rest of their lives. The campgrounds listed above all allow such memories to be made, but they go far beyond that too. This is what makes them not just good, but great parks for camping with the whole family.

    These sounds like some lovely sites. We camp a lot but are UK based, I love to do a camping trip abroad one time.

    You just made me realize how much I miss camping! This is such a helpful list especially when I decide to visit over that part of the world. After all, I enjoy my travels best when I’m outdoors 😀

    When I read this I thought you meant South East England! These sound so much more fun than any I’ve ever visited in the UK!

    I am not a camper but my kids and husband love it. They went twice this summer here in Colorado. We are blessed with some amazing camping areas close to home. These sound like great options for families in the south.

    My family just loves to go camping. It’s such a great way to get some family bonding time in and build some memories. We generally go with our extended family and it’s a great way for the different generations to get to know each other. I’m going to bookmark these sites for future planning!

    Camping is such a great family activity to create memories. There is something kids just love about doing regular activities outside like cooking over a fire. What a great round up of camping sites to try out!

    I’ve never been to Pirateland Campground, but I would love to visit one day. My son would love this experience, and so would I.

    Pirateland Campground sounds like much more than a campground. It sounds almost like an amusement park. That’s my kind of camping though. All of these sound like great choices, and I might even agree to go if I had these as options.
