Alpharetta, Georgia Camping

Camping for Phish in Alpharetta, Georgia

Looking for a place to camp for the shows in Georgia? Continue further for the closest spot but also there is a list of places provided by the amphitheater, here they are with distance calculations for your conveniance;

20 Mi. SE = Stone Mountain Park 6867 Memorial Dr, Stone Mountain – (770) 498-5600
19 minutes away = Twin Lakes Parks and RV 3300 Shore Drive, Cumming – (770) 887-4400
36 minutes away = Payne Campground – Allatoona Lake 2495 Kellogg Creek Road, Acworth – (678)721-6700 
27 minutes away = Jones Rv Park 2200 Willow Trail Pkwy, Norcross, Georgia – (770) 923-0911
26 minutes away = Sawnee Campground 3200 Buford Dam Road, Cumming – (770) 887-0592
36 minutes away = Lake Lanier Island Resort 7000 Lanier Islands Parkway, Buford – (770) 945-8787

There were a few others recommended but they have been removed because of excessive distance from the venue. Looks like a designated driver may be the best option, or an expensive cab, or if any campground may offer a shuttle..but hotels may be most convenient here.

Past years there were some folks that ran a 'Phish Camp' nearby the venue in Alpharetta, it was Sweet Apple Art Studio & Farm at 12840 New Providence Road, Alpharetta, GA...if you can get in touch with them it could be another spur of the moment convenient spot.

The closest and perhaps best choice is Twin Lakes Park. The place Sawnee Campground off Buford Road is probably one of the most widely accepted choice but requires compliance, ie; lay low, sneak booze in.

The place in Buford, Lake Lanier, is amazing but a bit of a drive at about a half hour north of the venue. 

Some research and Wills Park in Alpharetta comes up...this place apparantly has camping! Very near the venue, 5 minute drive. See for full info.

*Wills Park 
11925 Wills Road Alpharetta, GA
call 678-297-6120 to arrange a spot..looks like atleast 40 are offered.
Otherwise, just get there very early! It is said to be a free for all. Claim your spot.

If nothing else, head northwest of Alpharetta past the suburbs and find a random place to camp, lots of open fields...a bit sketchy to plan on though.
