Fall is the perfect time of year to enjoy a camping trip, and Breedlove Land Planning has worked with Georgia Department of Natural Resources to design numerous yurt campsites. If you’re not familiar with the term “yurt,” the original yurt was a traditional home used by Central Asian nomads. The modern-day yurt is a dome-shaped, lattice-framed, canvas-covered structure most often erected on a wooden deck. They typically have front decks, rear decks, electricity, furnishings and even a space heater. Each yurt site also has an outdoor living area with a fire pit, grill, and a picnic table. Together, these amenities make them the latest craze in camping. BLP has designed yurt campsites at Cloudland Canyon State Park, Tugaloo State Park, and Fort Yargo State Park, which were all recently featured in this Atlanta Journal and Constitution article, “Yurts in Georgia: 6 of the best spots for yurt camping.”
BLP has worked with Georgia Department of Natural Resources over the past decade to produce master plans and to design trails and trail systems, parking lots, campgrounds, boardwalks, septic fields and a host of other site amenities. Other yurt campsites designed by BLP include Sweetwater Creek State Park and High Falls State Park.
