Explore Newnan’s Lake and the Gainesville Hawthorne Trail

Kate’s Fish Camp is more than just a place to park your RV, it is an exclusive campground completely surrounded by extraordinary wilderness with many trails to explore. Our campground is directly connected to the Gainesville-Hawthorne State Bike Trail with a map located here and Kates Fish Camp has total access to Newnan’s Lake. Fishing information is available on Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s website. All of our sites are “pull-through sites,” and each comes with electricity (30, 50, and 20 amp), water, and Gigablast high-speed Wi-Fi. Kate’s Fish Camp does not offer sewage hookups because of the surrounding land’s recognized natural, ecological and cultural values. All campers must be self-contained, and only RV camping is available, although we offer a guest restroom and a shower for your use.
