Yes you can bring a genny. I brought one of those super quiet honda ones last year and had zero issue. I did not use it to run anything at night though. When I did run it though it could not be heard in any campsites around us including our own. We ran some music,fans, and charged about 20 cell phones. People came from far and wide to hang out at our camp and charge their stuff.
Personally, I would only bring a generator if I had one of those ultra-quiet 1000-2000 watt Hondas (or a similar Yamaha, etc.), and I would only run it during the day, whether to power fans, charge phones, or whatever. Every other generator I've seen is pretty loud.

I agree with uvajed. If you are going to get a portable generator, I'd suggest an inverter. They are smaller, more efficient (cleaner energy = no fumes for your neighbors), and much quieter... As for decibel range, it is probably best to stick to generators that are under 60 dBA. There is a generator comparison chart on this website lists/compares decibel levels: www.portablegenerator-bestreviews.com/compare-portable-generators/
i have thought every year about bringing my honda 2000i and a small 5000btu AC unit to rig to my tent. Still debating for this year. I wouldn't run it at night just at 9am when my tent gets hot so I could sleep in. I also can imagine having a chill party in there and inviting a bunch of friends in to enjoy the coolness. The generator i have is quieter than a normal conversation and i would run it on top of my car so there would be no fumes. I have seen lots of people with generator in GA for various reasons as long as you are respectful of your neighbors i really doubt anyone will care.
