We traveled I75 this past trip, and my sister lives in Suwannee so we'll travel in that area as well. We stayed at the Cordelle KOA which has worked a few times as a sleepover, but it's nice to have options!

If you are traveling I-75 then Fort Mountain SP, Amicalola SP, or ACOE's around Carter's Lake are not too far off the path. If you head up I-575 to get to the mountains, then Vogel SP and Unicoi SP are very good.
While in Suwannee, you might want to look at Stone Mountain Park Campground.
We really like Fort Mountain SP. We have stayed there a couple of times. I would say keep away from Black Rock SP. We drove up there to see how it was and was not impressed. We take Hwy 441 towards Cherokee, NC to get to the Smokey's and you pass Dillard, NC. A friend has stayed at a campground there with her 2 children and really enjoyed it.

Funny thing is my family loves Black Rock... but if you are pushing your tow limit, you will have trouble getting up the mountain...
We have camped at FDR, Unicoi, A.H. Stephens, Cloudland Canyon, and Fort Yargo and loved them all. The rangers at every park were friendly, helpful, and great with the kids. We hope to camp at some different places this spring. Ft Yargo has the train going past, but it wasn't too bad. Friday night was the worst night for the train.
