Camping Near Blankets Creek
I've heard good things about Blankets Creek, and I wanna go ride there soon. It's only about an hour from where I live, but does anyone know of any good campgrounds around there? I would really like to spend a weekend camping and riding the trails there.

There doesn't seem to be any campgrounds that are really close, you're best bet is probably around Lake Allatoona. Check the link:

Keep in mind that there isn't a ton of mileage at Blankets, maybe 15 miles or so total. Olde Rope Mill Park is a few miles away from Blankets and will net another 10 or so miles. They are both really fun trail systems, but don't expect a weekend of all new scenery, you will likely be doing repeated loops to fill up a weekend of riding.
It's even worth heading there for day of riding, I live an hour away and regularly drive to Woodstock to ride for a couple of hours. The Sorba Woodstock site has more info and good maps:
Red Top Mountain State Park is 15 miles away, but it might take you a 1/2 hour to drive there. It's a nice park though.
