Smokey mountains and Atlanta

Hi all, see if I can get some recommendations from the locals.
Thursday 26 April we plan to leave for Atlanta where I have to work two days for an Airline company starting with a D.

If I can get it all done then will tow a car along. Wife , Mom , kids and Rosie will stay in Dory. Any recommendations to stay with a bus from Sunday afternoon to Tuesday afternoon with 1/2 hour from the airport?
I do not want them to have to hang on a walmart.

Thanks in advance.

later J

There's not much with in a half hour of the airport that I can think of. Try Atlanta South RV Resort dot com, they have 80 pull through sites. if you have time and haven't been, Stone Mountain Park is a must see when in the area.

unless its changed, be careful of the atlanta's southern areas of the cities.. it was pretty rough when I was installing hotels in those areas..

Thank you, just checked it out. Have to read up on Stone Mountain. Looks like they have some camping there as well.

That pretty much includes the whole city of Atl.
The new mayor just fired the whole city corrupt government officials, probably so she can bring on her own corrupt crew. This city is a mess and still hadn't recovered from the computer hack that shut down the whole cities computer system.

When you find a place take the time your GPS tells you and add at least 30-45 minutes for traffic. And if you don't mind the drive there is an RV campground in Marietta and that is a straight shot down I-75. If you time it right you can be going against traffic each way, but that's up to when you have to work.

Glad you got to see Stone Mountain. Did you get to see any of the light show?
The rock is a spectacle. Carving has become controversial lately with anti racist groups wanting to have the carving sand blasted off.

Yes we went to the top with the cable cart. Not much of a spectacle person. Not sure how much of the KKK is still involved with the mountain but no need to help pay their bills. For me the carving is not a problem as long as you properly "un-glorify" and keep history straight.
