If you close your eyes from the exit off 75 to the entrance to the campground, you will never know what a depressed area it is located in. And don't get me started about all of the adult stores at every exit in this area. It's too bad because this is a well-cared-for place with lots of space between RVs, a nice playground for kids, and nice laundry room. Everything else we didn't use. And we carry our own mifi so I have no idea about their wifi but the cable was fine. If you go up to exit 101 you can find restaurants and a movie theater. I would use Yelp.com to check out the reviews on the places to eat...I would come back here because the people are lovely, the campground was quiet, and the trees are nice. Of course, my husband will be driving because my eyes will be shut! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good for overnight stay off of I-75 but, would not utilize as a destination. Located in depressed area, abandoned buildings nearby. Located in an area of Pecan trees with lots of gnats around. Sites are relatively level and easy to access with a 30 foot RV towing a car. (Did not have to un-hook.) Cable TV reception was OK but, I was unable to access the WiFi due to a poor signal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were driving through and only stayed one night. It was raining when we arrived, but we got a nice escort to our site anyway. We had a full hook-up which was nice due to the weather. The park was fairly empty and very nice for sleeping. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is convenient to I-75 without any road noise. Sites are level, with gravel surface, but sandy. Situating our rig was a bit difficult due to tree placement at the entry to the site. The roads were wide enough to navigate easily. Staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed one night and found all the services to be adequate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a truly nice campground. We stay in many and we will come back to this one when we travel through the area again. We live full-time in our 5th wheel, so we really appreciate a nice spot when we find it. Very friendly staff, clean park, pool, and restrooms. Very nice little store as well. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A nice KOA with lovely shade trees. All of the sites are pull-through between 50 and 75 ft. Our site was level, however I would have liked a gravel pull-through. It rained and caused some mud. Camp store was tasteful. There are some points of interest around Cordele. Andersonville Civil War Prison, Plains GA - Home of President Jimmy Carter. Electrical, water, sewer and TV in the middle of your space. The pedestal was painted a bright yellow and clean! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
KOA membership rate. We stayed there while attending the FMCA rally in Perry. Easy on/off the highway. The park sites are dirt/gravel but level. Showers/restrooms are always clean and well maintained. Friendly and helpful staff made the stay and daily drive into Perry worth it. There is nothing nearby because it is outside Cordele, but it within driving distance of Plains and Andersonville for sight-seeing. There is an abandoned truck plaza that brings down the location, but the campground is nice and well maintained. Definitely would stay again if in area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The KOA in Cordele is one of our favorite overnight spots when we are traveling north on I-75 from Tampa. This past week we hit it going and returning from the Smoky Mountains. The park sites are dirt/gravel but always level and clean. Showers/restrooms are always clean and well maintained. Friendly and helpful staff make the stay even better. When we stopped there late Saturday, the staff had put together a BBQ fundraiser for one of their staff who was ill. They were selling smoked pork in the office and it was delicious and a great smell throughout the park. The only downside to this park would be the location. There is nothing nearby because it is outside Cordele. There is an abandoned truck plaza that brings down the location, but the KOA is nice and well maintained. Definitely recommend as an overnight place to stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park deserves high ratings because it delivers on what you expect from a KOA. Showers rate a 10 but get a 9 because it takes a full 1 minute for warm water to arrive and 2 minutes for full hot water. There is a shower head in the men’s room that needs replacing. The showers were 4 to 6“ too narrow and needed and extra 12’ in the dressing area. Other than that this park could give tours and seminars to other camp ground owners on how to design and maintain a superior RV park bath house. There were 4 washers and 4 dryers at $1.50 each in the clean but small laundry. We stayed here 2 days expecting to play golf, which never came about. It was interesting to watch the full gauntlet of rigs arrive and depart, most heading to Florida for the winter. It appears that if you have a $500,000 Prevost you will already know of this stopover. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice KOA with great facilities. Restrooms were spotless and the cold A/C in July was very nice. Older playground for the kids, which they enjoyed, plus other fun amenities. Gravel roads, but our site was level. Bring bug spray, it is South GA. A few ant hills around but not so bad that I felt anything needed done about it. This was my 2nd visit and we'll be back again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice KOA that is easy to get into and out of. We did not utilize any KOA facilities, so I cannot comment on them. The staff was friendly and the park was clean. We had a good level site, and the sites were not overly close together. If you're just looking for a place to stay overnight, this KOA is fine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped in on our way to Tennessee; did not plan to stop but weather was bad. We paid in the office and the office person wasn't very friendly. We were escorted to our site by a person on a golf cart. Our site was a little soggy from the rain, so our vehicle wasn't that level. Wi-Fi was slow and the cable TV was going in and out. Our water was a little cloudy; I guess it was because of the weather. Bathrooms were not dirty but not very clean. We washed some clothes but they didn't come out real clean and the drier didn't properly dry them after 45 minutes. Park had a few long-term residents. A few were out walking around. Went out to dinner in town. There was not much to choose from. The area was pretty quiet. We saw a police cruiser drive through checking out park at night. We may stop back if in the area to see if things are better. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Your basic KOA. Just off I-75 and close to several dead service stations and a deceased truck stop; thus it is quieter than in the past. Friendly people. Sites are gravel and when it rains they are spongy. Wi-fi was slow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here passing through on I-75. Easy access to the interstate. There is some interstate noise but it was not bothersome to us. We arrived late and staff was accommodating giving us an easy site to get too. Easy to maneuver in park with a tow. Sites were level and we did not have to unhook. Facilities were clean. Did not use Wi-Fi. Overall it was a nice campground and we would stay again if passing through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. Stayed one night. Easy access from the interstate. Camp host took us to wrong site, but was better than one assigned, so they re-registered us with no problem so we could stay on that site. Will stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access off I-75, big rig friendly, super friendly staff with escort to site. Nice store in the office. Gravel pads with gravel patios. Nice spot for an over nighter if needed. Lot's of tree trimming going on ( Pecan trees) when we got here, so they're grooming the place to keep it nice! I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one night on a trip home from NC. The campground is easy on/off from I-75. You can hear I-75, but it is not bothersome at all. The staff is excellent and very friendly. We were escorted to our site, a pull through. Most, if not all, sites are pull through. The campground is shaded with pecan trees. The bathrooms and showers were very clean and had great A/C. The shower was great. It was clean and had very good water pressure. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. The site we had was level, and we did not have to disconnect the tow vehicle. Yes, there were gnats. They were friendly and did not bite like the no see ums we have in Florida. Later in the evening we sat outside and were not bothered by them. I was told by the staff that the gnats are here until September. Hey, gnats have to live somewhere, too. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Staff was helpful and friendly on check in. A worker escorted us to our site. Easy access in and out of the park from I-75. We stayed one night during rip from NC back to Florida. Sewer, water, electric and cable TV all worked well for our stay. We used the pool which was clean and nice. The bathrooms and showers were clean and locked with code given for access. Our only complaint as others have stated is the gnats are unbelievable! They will swarm every inch of your body (at least in July) as you set up, take down and do anything else outside. All in all it was fine for a one night stay while traveling through. We would return for a one night stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This a nice, clean park with level sites and plenty of extras. They have a well stocked store featuring RV parts and accessories. I needed an oddball size bulb for a closet light and had one! I bought extras. The park is located about two minutes off of I-75. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I'd go there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped here over night. The park was quiet with level sites. There was a special music benefit the night we stayed so the owners were very accommodating with a site location that wasn't too close to the due to the music. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects KOA member discount. Courteous staff. Good, clean, quite stop over. Pull-through site was level with power, water and sewer connections. WI-FI was there but very slow. Cell connection was good, but by being just off I-75 there probably were towers close-by. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park has very friendly and helpful staff. Escort to site. Well maintained and very clean and neat. Being near I-75, the road noise a minor factor. Water pressure was low at times. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stopped here on the way to Florida. Has a few large pull-through sites. Close to I-75. Great for a one night stop. We have a 42' coach. I usually don't stop at KOA's but will stop here again, on the way to Florida. We camped here in a Motorhome.
OK Park for an overnight stay. Right off I-75, sites are long, but narrow. Pool was very nice. Office staff very friendly. Gnats are a problem, they get in and on everything. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We pulled in to this park expecting an award winning KOA. No longer true. The park is located behind a large, abandoned truck stop and it felt unsafe. There were several worn out looking campers in the front of the park. At 6:00, all the owners pulled in after their day at work. My son witnessed one hanging out with no shirt and a bottle of whiskey. I didn't feel safe letting my kids use the restrooms or hanging out outside of the camper with these guys around. There were gnats swarming everywhere when you left the camper. We were registered for 2 nights, but left the next morning. The atmosphere was not family friendly, and I didn't want to leave my camper unattended in that location. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Friendly staff and good escort. Site was relatively level and all services worked well. Seems well maintained campground. While campground is close to I-75 it was very quiet and offered a good sleep. Good location from which to visit area attractions such as Andersonville and Plains. First time here and will definitely stay here again when in area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a nice campground. Nothing fancy, but nice large sites for our beast and toad. Southern hospitality started in the office. The sites were level and had beautiful pecan trees. We would stay here again if in the area. Highly recommended. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is basically good for an overnight. Don't expect much else but a basic roadside KOA. People were friendly enough but would not recommend the park for long stays. IF YOU NEED WI-FI, stay up front as the signal only reaches a few spots around the office. Train tracks on one side and a repair shop on the other side boost the noise from I-75 but if your tired enough it won't matter. There is no gas or restaurants at the stop also. A stop a few miles north has the usual roadside fare and many gas stations. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground was easily accessed off the interstate, although you might be temporarily put off by first passing through a small, rather industrial and deserted looking truck stop area. Pretty campground with mature tall trees. We were escorted to our level, pull-through, FHU, 30/20 site. We had to back up a bit to actually use the sewer in the morning. Super pleasant office staff and very nicely stocked store, especially appreciated the local pecans, etc. We enjoyed the nice 8' pool, good temperature and was deep enough for some diving. Clean laundry and very pretty bathhouse. Good free WiFi and cable TV. Very prepared to be dog friendly with waste bags and trash cans, but bring and use your flea spray for your pets and ankles. Very little road noise. I think a crop duster flew over us once in the morning, that was noisy, but this is an agricultural area. We would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a perfect place to stop when on I-75. Easy on and off. We have stopped here many times on way home (FL) from vacations. Only regret is the Truck stop next to this KOA has closed. Used to be good spot to walk over, have breakfast and not have to unhook the toad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here overnight while en route to the beach. At first, we were very concerned about the location of the campground because when you exit the interstate, there are several adult business on the opposite side of the road. However, we went ahead and continued on to the campground which is probably less than 1/2 mile away, and we were happy to find it clean and well maintained. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They pick up trash directly from your site and even escort you to your site when you arrive. There is a small pool at the office which was not crowded at all. The worst thing about this campground is that it feels a little desolate - for lack of a better description. I would give the campground a better review except for its location. There are no restaurants, gas stations, or other businesses (other than adult oriented) on the same exit. Still, it was fine for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Friendly helpful staff. The manager came down to check on us after we had a chance to set up and make sure everything was OK. The Wi-Fi is free but does not cover the whole campground, so if this is important, you need to go to the office with your laptop or ask for a site close to the office. Cable TV was free and worked. Water pressure was up and down, so made showering and rinsing dishes frustrating. No ATM available at this campground. Some highway noises could be heard in the distance. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overnight stop for us: easy in and out from I-75. Friendly and helpful staff. Next morning we needed directions to Jimmy Carter NHS, and staff was very helpful with directions and type of roads which we would be driving on. Hubby said bathroom was not as warm in the early a.m. as he would have liked, but water was hot for shaving. All in all, would definitely return for a longer stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It is a very nice place, with great staff and who were helpful. We had a pull through and was perfect for our one night stay while going to the Smokies. We will use them again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park for an overnight. Grounds appear clean and well kept. All utilities worked well. Didn't try the Wi-Fi, but Verizon Broadband had good, strong signal. Close to I-75, but far enough away so that traffic noise isn't an issue. We will stop here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
An older KOA, but well kept. The staff was wonderful. There is a great and well stocked store. Satellite reception was great, but the Wi-Fi is connected to a lower speed Hughes satellite system which was very slow to load many sites. The trucker stop next door, which was at one time quite extensive, is now closed. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here on our way to and from Disney World. The staff was very accommodating.It is right off I-75, but far enough away so you don't have highway noise. It makes a nice overnight stop. We definitely would use this facility again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Even though the park looked nice, we couldn't enjoy it because of the bugs. There were gnats and flies everywhere and at all times of the day. You couldn't use the pool or even sit outside. It was horrible. We had booked three nights but left after two because of the bugs. We told the management why we were leaving but they made no attempt to provide a refund for the last day. We would have rated it higher but those bugs totally ruined our stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our family had the pleasure to stay at this park on our way home from vacation. It is very family oriented. At the time we stayed at the park it was really very hot but we were able to cool off in the pool. We didn't get to do any sight seeing because of time restraints but would love to come back maybe when it is cooler. The facilities were very clean, and we would recommend for family stopovers. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We stayed here for the month of July had a great visit. It is very clean and well maintained park. You could cook in your microwave and run your air conditioning and stay cool at the same time without the breaker going off. The pool was fantastic very clean and clear water. The other campers and long term residents were very friendly. The staff was helpful and friendly. If in the area we would gladly stay here again. It is very affordable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here just over two weeks and I've fallen in love with this place. Beautiful, huge pecan trees, really clean pool plus easy going, nice people working here. I loved it all, have really fond memories and can't wait to go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stopped in on an overnight visit. Nice park with lots of trees, fairly level and clean. Good overnight park. The staff was standofish, and we felt when we walked in for a question (twice) we were intruding. Otherwise would recommend overnight here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good for an overnighter or two. Sites are flat, and flood easy when it rains. And they could use some fresh gravel. The TA truck stop next door has closed down. The laundry facility was poor. They were clean, but performed poorly. Dryers took two cycles of 45 minutes to get clothes minimally dry. Spoke to the office staff but the attitude was "they are not ours, we just split the money with the company that owns them". I would probably stay at the state park next time. It's close by and rated higher. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Outstanding! The people here were fantastic. We checked in late and they had all our necessary info waiting on us when we arrived. The campground was very clean. We will for sure return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We only spent one night there on our way down I-75. Most but not all of the pull through sites will allow a long rig to pull in without unhooking. Truck stop right next door but the noise did not bother us for the one night that we were there. Good place to stop on your commute up and down I-75. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at this campground one night on our way to Walt Disney World. It is conveniently located just off the interstate. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The only minor con is the campground is located next to a truck stop so chances are you will hear tractor trailers running during the night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good one night stop for us. Large level pull-thrus. Clean showers. Camp store adequate. No cable TV. Could pick up WiFi signal from truck stop next door, but not very strong. There are some back-in sites that might be closer and have a good signal. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean grounds, dusty interior roads, loud trucks at truck stop next door. It was an overnight stop, but these items did not help. I would have rated it higher if they had WiFi. Actually it would rate very high if roads had been paved and the truckstop was not so loud. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is actually very well kept up, nice entrance and landscaping and the pool was excellent. The bathrooms were clean and have door lock key codes to enter. The gift shop is nice and has a desk for dialup internet access but no wireless (unless you have a account with TA, Travelers America truck stop that you can use because you can get a signal there) We camped at site 16 and when we setup, the picnic table was covered with sand and dried mud. This should have been cleaned prior to our arrival. Air conditioning is almost a must because the trucks parked next door at the truck stop are about 100' from the east campsites and at night, they were almost full. The trucks were running all night. After arriving, there was no water for about an hour when something broke at the well/pump which is shared by the campground and truck stop. Luckily it was fixed. The day staff peson was very friendly but a night person was not very personable. We heard lightening and thunder about 4 am and it would have been nice to have wireless to get on a radar web site and check the weather because the cable weather channel did not have local radar. If not for the truck stop and a few minor other things (mentioned previously), this would be a campground I would give about a 8 or 9 out of a possible 10. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good location off of I-75 but, office staff is very unfriendly, distant, not at all polite; man who showed us our site was nice. Lots of long term units in place and people sitting around to 2-3 a. m. drinking and loud (kept us awake after a long day on the road). It seems that KOA's are really going downhil, in general. I've been a member for a long time and, over the past 2 years have had many complaints and, I'm easy to get along with. Would not stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park for stop-over on way to Florida, however make sure you park on the far side away from the truckstop. The trucks are now parking right up against the fence to the campground and the noise is terrible at night. Too bad, because they keep the park very neat and tidy and are working hard to make this nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice KOA. They have been doing some upgrades to utilities & sites. Gravel sites. Typical KOA as far as site room goes. Our row (sites 13-23) was next to a Travel America truck stop. Although there is nice landscape seperation you could hear truck noise all night. I'm not a light sleeper so the noise didn't bother me. Good place for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed there several times visiting family in area. Quiet, except for the truck stop, which you do not hear all that much. Only problem we have experienced has been the black flies (or whatever those little creatures are) at certain times of the year. Course this seems to be a problem all over the area, not just the campground. We camped here in a camper.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Have been staying there since 1982 and have always found it above average with regards to laundry, toilets and showers. Only drawback is location behind truckstop so noise can be a problem. We camped here in a camper.
Worst CG we've ever stayed at, in general. Even if you get past the run down condition: Electrical pedestals are scary bad. Voltage dropped to dangerous levels if two power appliances were used at the same time. Supposed to be a Passport America member park, but they charged the same to us with our PA card as they show on the wall for all over night stays. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Paid for 4 nights, but only stayed one. Voltage 140+. Our TV went up in smoke. Asked for three night refund. Park managment did not want to refund. After a discussion he did refund. The exit was narrow and had water standing on it. Our 33,000 pound rig became stuck in the mud. Wrecker cost $550.00, and a new TV plus installation cost $450.00. Total cost for one night $1,018.00. Have reported this to Georgia fire marshal with pictures of power boxes and mud exit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I stayed one night and found out this is the worst place I have stayed in 10 years of camping. Owner was not very nice and the bugs were unbearable. Leaving was hampered by mud and low tree branches. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed at this park for the past three years on our way to and from Florida. It has always been a very restful stop. The owner is eager to make sure your stay is pleasant. We did have an unusual event when we stopped on our way home this year. The park had more big rigs than I have ever seen there before. They were stopping on their way to a rally near-by. I think everyone was sorta overwhelmed, but this usually don't happen. I will definitely stay there again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place is a mess. The park was full. The owner doesn't know which sites have 50 amps or 30 amps. When we finally found a spot, a neighbor said that the load on the line would pop the circuits in our section. It did! We had to go through the trees to get to the site because he had parked others in the road somehow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have been coming to this RV park for over three years now and each time it is better than the last. I didn't feel the need to leave yet another review about this place until I saw a post from the same time frame we were there this year and I feel the need to add a little information. THEY HAD EXISTING PROBLEMS before they got here and are trying to blame it on the RV park. It's just a shame that people come to places like this to be slanderous and not leave behind the facts. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I love this park. I will tell all my friends to come here. I absolutely LOVE this PARK. The owner is very friendly and helpful. If you have a problem he is right there to fix it. It has a pool, a lake that is stocked with bass, some catfish, carp and brim. I was here when this couple came here. I was appalled by their review. What they had said was so untrue. The husband had told us before they came here the wife quote, "Had used the microwave and had problems with their electric since." When they arrived here and plugged in, they claimed that the electric here fried their fridge. So the owner had bought them the part they needed to repair their fridge. He went above and beyond the call of duty. The next morning the owner of the park had a certified electrician come and check out the box. I was there when the electrician told the husband that there was no way the power did harm to his rig. Everyone at this park had done what they could to help these people. Putting their food in one of the camper's fridge and and another camper loaned them a cooler for every day food. Not one time did these people say, "THANK YOU" to anyone that had helped them. When it is your fault, then you should take the blame and not put the blame on someone else. I learned that a long time ago the hard way. Just another, trying to get something for nothing. So, if you want a nice place to come to, this is it. People here are very friendly. Just pull up, plug in and just have FUN! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have been camping for over 30 yrs. And this was the worst place we've been in. We pulled into this park because Passport America listed it. As soon as we hooked up our electricity, I heard a loud pop in our coach. Our 4-door refrigerator burnt out. Our large micro-wave oven burnt and possible problem with one of our A/C's. The owner claimed it was not his electricity. A live in camper came over who admitted they had lightning blow their electricity out in the park. He said, he fixed the problems. But, also claimed he wasn't an electrician. I asked the owner if their was any RV repair places in the area. He said, no way, we're out in the middle of "no where here". So, he told this live in camper to check our unit. Found there was not the proper amperage coming into our coach and blew everything out. He said, our circuit board was burnt out. We moved to another site. After back and forth with the owner, he said he would order a new circuit board for our refrigerator and he was not responsible for anything else in our coach. We waited 5 days living with our food in a cooler filled with ice with no refrigeration waiting for a part to come in. My husband had to install it and it did not fix the problem. I found a nearby RV repair place in the same town. The town the owner called, out in the middle of no where. They came out, in 1 hour. He did not have the part in stock that he needed for our problem. But, he fixed it temporary until we got to another shop. It was our expense. Upon leaving, we got no apology, no refund for our expenses, nor offered to refund us our 5 day stay. The owner was arrogant, used profanity and insulting words. Would not give us his insurance info to cover our costs, nor offer to pay. I think Passport America should not consider recommending a place like this to Rver's. We now have the expense of having our refrigerator repaired, micro-wave and possibly 1 A/C unit. Just to save a few dollars, because of Passport America, it'll most likely cost us hundreds. If anyone is considering stopping at Cordele RV campground. Think again. Poor electricity, poor sewage, and the sites are mud holes with no distinction between each other. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed at this park in the past and there has been some improvement to the park. Some of the long long term residents have left and it is quieter. The power boxes still need some improvement, breakers still blow on occasion if you run too much. We stopped in for a night on our way to our next destination. Will probably stop in again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here last year because we had to (our motor blew up). We spent 4 months here then, and although I have read the comments others have left, as you can see we have returned to this park, by choice this time! The owner is the greatest. He will do everything possible to make your stay here a good one. The pool this year was open on May 1st and crystal clear. The lake is NOT covered in a layer of scum as others have said: they are lily pads and the fishing is awesome! If you are looking for a concrete campground with a gift shop, this place is not for you. But if you are looking for great company, good fishing and all around relaxation, you'd be sorry not to make this place a regular stop. And as far as the "long term" residents, well if you find them unsociable that will be your fault. From staying here last year for such a long time we got to know all of them and they are great people! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stopped by on our way home from Florida. When we arrived we stopped by the office it was around 5:00pm and there was nobody in the office. The sign on the door which was written pretty small said office open until 7:30pm during the summer months. There were white mail envelopes on the door to fill out and put money in for night deposit, so that is what we did. We picked our spot up top which was supposed to be 50amp but turns out it did not work properly, it kept cutting on and off. We could not cool our camper and cook at the sametime, so we had to cook and turn off air until dinner was ready. Later we took a short walk, took a look at pool and it was dirty with cloudy water, looks like it has not been used in sometime and its already June. Wife wanted to swim when we stopped but that was not possible. After that we saw some of the long term residents and campers, some of them look like they were there for along time. There was a pond in the park and that was full of algae. Went back to the camper for evening and left early in the am and will not return here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped in for a rest on our way home from winter vacation in Florida. We went to the office to check in and found no one there,so we waited a short time when we were approached by a man in a power chair, he asked us if we would like to stay the night and he checked us in.He told us owner was away for weekend and he was in charge of office, he was very nice and pleasant. He told us we could choose our site and told us where the 30amp and 50 amp sites were. We chose the 30amp site up top. After hooking up we took a look around and did not like some of the things we saw. The pool was still green and looked like it hadn't been touched in months or longer. The bathrooms were dirty and looked as if they had not been cleaned in awhile. Some of the long term residents there didn't look very sociable. In our opinion it looked like the park has not been taken care of in a longtime. The area around the park was deserted, the local truck stop was closed down so there was no gas or food in the area. You had to go to the next exit for food or shopping. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stopped overnight on our way north from Florida. It was pretty rundown and 30 amp power kept going out, owner reset the breaker several time. Most folks were using their A/C units causing low voltage. Close to I-75 making it very noisy at night. We would not stay there again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This rate was Passport America. This seems to be a struggling campground in a very depressed area. It claims to have a restaurant - it is closed. The pool, well it doesn't appear to have been open in the last few years. The owner and office staff were very friendly and very helpful. Because of the combined length of our unit and tow we were in the site closest to interstate 75 so there was quite a bit of highway noise. We did find plenty to keep us busy in the area however. If we were traveling nearby we would surely stop here again (and hopefully it will still be in existence) but would request a site as far as possible from the interstate. For the money, it was a great stop for a night or a few nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We checked in past 9pm at the this park and the owner was very accommodating and gave us a break on the nightly rate. However, we were not at all impressed with this park. The restrooms were very old and had many flying bugs. We didn't see the pool but the pond was overgrown with algae. We actually wondered about our safety while sleeping here. Sorry, but we cannot recommend this park to anyone. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Warning this is to my best description for anyone and I reported this to the sheriffs office and children and family services so take it from there how bad the place is. The pool is kept under lock and key unless the restaurant owner wants to use it for her own personal use. Then and only then the people in the park can use it, very shortly this park could be shutdown. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Passport America accepted. In general disrepair, needs updating. Roads need grading and sites leveling. Sewer hookups have to flow up hill due to placement. Has large pond on site with some camp sites close by. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park is a sprawling complex that includes a marina, RV & Tent sites and a couple of restaurants. The Lake side sites ( on Lake Blackshear ) are 50 Amp with water and the inland sites are 30 Amp plus water. We couldn’t find any sewers although our site had what appeared to have been a sewer connection in the past. Yes, when there is warm weather the gnats are present and annoying. One does have to look out for fire/biting ants. They have showers ( 2 male, 2 female per camping areas ( 3 areas & probably not adequate when they fill up )). The waterside sites are all back in and are level gravel and somewhat challenging to get into. They offer no wi-fi but our Verizon mi-fi worked just fine. It’s first come first serve and if you have a satellite dish, open sites are at a premium. The nearby golf course is excellent, challenging and after 2PM a bargain. Veterans price w/ cart $16.20 and three dollars extra for the senior rate. Reservations are now made directly with the park 229-276-2371, no longer through Reserve America – and book early. They do require a car pass and so the CG fee per night plus car pass was approximately 25.00 per day.. I’d play this course and use this campground again. A WalMart super store in Cordele is approximately 12 miles away and there are many small very interesting local stores ( Little Farmer’s Market, Leslie, GA and Striplings General Store at the park entrance) in the general area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a really nice park. We stayed here for a couple of nights and was very pleased. We stayed in section 3 which is mostly pull-through sites. All were pretty level. There is some lake side sites but you need to get there early on a Friday because its a first come first served. There is a beach area swim at your own risk. There is no life guard. Great place to ride bicycles. The park is a little spread out so the bicycles came in handy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gnats swarm thru the campground during the day, seem to disappear when the sun goes down. Sundown is when the rednecks come out cruising the shoreline drinking alcohol and using vulgar language. Around 10:00 PM a large party of drunks cranked up their party music and cussing, could be heard from one end of campground to the other. It took the Campground Host and Park Rangers almost an hour to quiet the group down. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a beautiful park on Lake Blackshear. The sites are a little close but laid out nicely to allow a little privacy. There are a number of waterfront sites as well as a more wooded loop if that's your thing. Campground is situated on a cove which makes it nice for kayaking and fishing. Host was extremely helpful and friendly. The museum was at no additional fee and worth checking out. We will definitely return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A real pleasant surprise! This is a large park with a convention center/restaurant/hotel, with a large lake, beautiful walkways, a small well done veterans war museum exhibit and an outdoor exhibit of WW2 aircraft including a B29,(how did they get that large plane there?) tanks and artillery pieces. There is a huge golf course. The campground is spacious with large gravel-dirt lake side sites, no brush clutter, large trees. Only negative I had was the bathhouse is dated and is in the middle of the campground with no walk ways to it from the surrounding roadway/campsites; excepting one handicapped site. Meaning you walk through lots of brown fallen leaves that can hid snakes and bugs. Things are spread out so a bike is great for getting about. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park and very clean, large sites with many pull throughs. Lake was beautiful this time of year with the fall colors all around. Lots of activities to do. I gave it a 9 for two reasons. 1. the park was full and they decided to close area # 3 and cram everyone in 1&2. 2. the park camp host acted like we were bothering him and was rude to my wife when we wanted to purchase wood from him. Other than that I would come back here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very clean and well maintained. Most, if not all sites in #3 are pull-through. Large sites. We reserved the Lakeside Pavilion for a family reunion and everyone enjoyed the facility (little overpriced) and closeness to restrooms and playground (large area for throwing frisbee, football). Great weekend! Hated leaving. Will definitely come back for longer stay (and try the golf course and train). We camped here in a Tent.
The park is 10 miles west of Cordele off I-75. There is a large display of war machinery and aircraft as well as a museum and gift shop. The sites are large, many lakefront. The campground area is gate guarded, neat and clean. Most of the sites are shaded with mature trees. There is a R.C. model airport for use with a current AMA Card. There are boat rentals, fishing, a golf course and a nice restaurant. The park is very well maintained. There are discounts available for active/retired military and senior citizens. A great place to spend a few nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The is a large state park. Our site was on the water and very large and clean. We did have 50 amp but no sewer in any of the sites. Many pull through sites but some could be tight for large rigs. The restrooms were clean. We were able to launch our kayaks directly from our site. The golf course in the park is a little pricey. We played at Pine Hills in Cordele on a senior rate of $19.00 each. A very nice course and highly recommend it. The state park is big enough for lots of biking. There is a nice swim beach too. We were not bothered by noise from the marina since we were here during the week. Almost had the entire camping area to ourselves. Don't know what it would be like on the weekend but I can see how it might get really hectic. We will definitely come back but probably during the week again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice place to stay overnight or for a few days. Only a few miles off the interstate. Friendly staff and the lake was outstanding. The military display outside needs some up keep. Nice little military display in the main office. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped here on the lake front. Is a nice small interesting lake, great for our canoe. Planes and other sites in campground were nice, could stand some upkeep. Plenty to do here and in nearby areas, check out Jimmy Carters home town with train, nice trip. Georgia parks are better than some other nearby. Right off I-75 good stop over. Some sites are close by, others are in open, and a few are lakefront, find what suits you. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed at site #11. We arrived on Sunday and stayed 3 nights. When we arrived Sunday early afternoon, the beach on the lake was packed along with the marina. At the marina there are boat/jet ski rentals. There is also a lodge in the park. The campground is somewhat secure. Each time you enter the campground you must enter a code for the gate to open day/night. Only paying campers are allowed in the camping area. All sites will accept large rigs. There are many pull-through sites. The office does not assign you a site, once you pay, you go find one on your own although you can make reservations online. There are several sites with lake views. The sites are very clean and most are shaded. I cut one point for not having septic hookup at each site, but there is a dump station with 2 dump sites. I enjoy hiking and the two trails here are very short and boring. Thus, I took another point for lack of hiking trails. There are a few military vehicles on display, but it is obvious they are lacking in maintenance. The museum is small but interesting. I would recommend this campground for campers traveling on I-75 and boaters. It is 10 miles from I-75. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground, well laid out, clean restrooms, no garbage visible, clean firepits and sites nicely kept. Only drawback seemed that vehicles were parked everywhere and the rules we were given, did not seem to be enforced even though we saw the rangers driving through several times. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were park volunteers and stayed at this park for 4 months. Very nice sites that can accommodate any size rig. Waterfront sites are close together. Only one bath house is heated. Washer/dryer cost is $1.00 per load. Verizon cell and air card service is excellent as there is a Verizon tower located in the park. Beware that there can be loud music during the weekends from the Marina. Loop one would really hear it. Wal-Marts are located in Americus and Cordele. We would stay in this park again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park to visit. We have camped there quite a few times. Most are shady but with some of them you have to decide if you want the AM or PM sun. As with the Ga. parks their is no sewage, but the bathhouses are located close to all the sites. They have a few 50 amp sites, but no one working in the office knows the site numbers. They just say you have to look for them. The grass around the lake needed to be cut when we were there in April. Good level sites with gravel in some. The workampers were excellent and all we had to do was ask and they would do their best to help us. My ratings on this campground are very high. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was my absolute first time camping with the family, and we chose this park because of its proximity to some historical sites, the SAM Shortline Railroad, and because of its easy access to Albany which has a few things to do for the kids. The sites are very flat and are made of gravel. The sites close to the lake are really nice and have a bathroom close by as well as the playground. The back sites are equally as nice but offer more shade and less motorboat traffic. In the back where we stayed, the bathroom sits in the middle of the circle and is pretty easy to get to in the middle of the night if needed. I fully expected to take a cold shower in the morning because of its heavy usage, but the camp water heaters handled it well. Noise is what brought my experience at this park way down. In order to make/save money, Georgia has leased out the cabins and lodge to a private company that has a "club" running on most nights with live bands or disk jockeys. On Friday night, the music didn't shut down until 1 a.m. and on Saturday I woke up to the last call being announced around 2. Although the bar shut down a bit earlier, the parking lot of screaming people and bass speakers didn't go quiet until about 3. My only quiet night was Sunday, and we decided to leave on Monday morning. It just wasn't what I expected when going camping. I joked that we could have camped in downtown Atlanta in the parking lot of a nightclub and had a more peaceful evening. There is easy boating access, a huge field for playing ball or flying kites, and enough paved area for riding bikes made the park worthwhile, but sleeping helps make those experiences better. If you need wood or bait for fishing, there are two stores directly in front of the park that are pretty reasonable, but Sunday hours might be tricky. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Senior rate. 10 based on no sewer. The dump station is well laid out and has two stations. You can dump and reverse back into the site loops with no problems. Golf course is pricey. With our Golf Card discount ($6 each), a weekday round with cart for two was $63. Ironwood Golf Club just south was $50 for two. On Tuesdays and Thursdays they had a $25 dollar special of golf all day with cart (no Golf Card required for the special). We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very large S/P on lake Blackshear. Roads are good asphalt, sites are packed gravel, most are level, table, fire rings, good number are on the lakeside, and have 30/50 amps, most have lots of large trees to park under. Cable TV was poor with 11 channels, DTV was good for 3 channels, sat. TV with work if your dish is on the ground or you can find an open site. New dump station that can take three unit at the time. Very large beach for swimming. Hotel Blackshear in park as well. Playground equipment for the kids. Gate was locked 24/7. If you like to fish, 20 feet from your door to lake. Wal-Mart and lots of place to eat and shop in Cordele. Very nice golf course in park. Sam Short Line (train) runs from park over to Plans, GA. Lots of fun for everyone here. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park and everyone was helpful and courteous. The sites are nicely spaced and are not right on top of each other. There is a resort adjacent to the park and the food in the restaurant there was wonderful. Beautiful sunsets and lots of big grassy areas to walk your dog. They also have disc golf and a museum. The only thing I thought was a little disappointing was that they say they have cable TV, but that only consists of about eight stations, four of which are network stations. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I would rate this park a 10 except it had no sewer and very few 50 amp sites. But what a park! I don't think I've ever seen a state park with so much to do. A marina, restaurant, museum, tanks and airplanes on display and even a train. Sites are nice and well spaced. We will be back to this one. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate here was actually 22 plus a 3 parkpass. The park is beautiful with a museum for all the wars. Outside the office, there's planes, and helicopters, and various tanks. We only stopped for one night off of I-75. We did not stay on the lake but had a gorgeous lake view as the sites across from us were not occupied. The sites here were quite large and full of trees. Even though it's quite pretty, I don't think I'd want to spend much time here without a pool since I'm sure that lake is full of gators. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had site #30 up on a hill overlooking the lake. Each site has basic cable, picnic table, grill with a separate fire ring. 3 camping areas and 3 bathhouses. Coded entry into campground. Small playground in camping area. 2 others in picnic area. Boat ramp and dock in camping area. Laundry facilities at bathhouses. Park has small museum with aircraft from several wars. Small store at check in area. Model airplane flying field. Cottages and Lodge on premises. 2 nature trail(1 mi and 1/2 mi) 2 dump stations. All sites large to extra large. Several family type sites. Golf course on property. SAM train to Americus and Plains at edge of park. Fishing allowed and there is an outfitting company that puts together fishing/hunting/and antiquing trips. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Located on beautiful Lake Balckshear. Nice, level sites. Only drawback we noticed was the lack of sewer hookup. There is a dump station available on the property. Gates lock at 10PM. You can leave but will have to locate park personnel to get back into the park. Quiet time means just that. We have been there a few times and will return. Sams Shortline Railroad has a stop/pickup here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped on the lake. This park is very beautiful and peaceful. The sites are pea rock, so you do not track in dirt. The bathrooms and showers were clean. I did laundry here and only had to run the dryer once per load. There is fishing and a war museum. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
GA Vet's has 3 comfort stations. Loops 1 & 2 have 2 showers per side. Loop 3 has 3 showers per side. We have always found this park to be very clean. Unfortunately it does fill up for the holidays and you need to book far ahead. We had to leave and stay at Dixie RV park across the street for Memorial weekend. This is one of our favorite parks in the GA State system. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful place! We took our waverunners and were able to use them on the lake. Lake is very large. The campsites are large and mostly shaded. There are 2 comfort stations, however the womens had only 2 showers, but during the busy Memorial Day Weekend, there was not a wait to use them. There is a small playground for the children. The boat ramp has plenty of parking area and the ramp and dock are in great shape. There is marina and golf course at the Lake Blackshear Resort which is on the property. This campground is family and pet friendly and very quiet. The sites on the water are $27 per night. The only thing lacking was the State Park staff. On the few occasions I went to the office, I found them to be not as friendly and informed as I had expected at a State Park. We will, however, definitely go back. This is a great place to camp. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park with lots of nice large sites. In order to get a waterfront site you have to get there early. It is difficult to get reservations unless you book early. There is nowhere to clean the fish you catch as the fish cleaning station is closed and has been for a long time. There also are only two showers available for use in the women's bath house which is not enough for the number of sites on the lake side. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wonderfully shaded, easy in and out. We stayed in loop "C" at space 62. Nice touches are a fire ring, substantial picnic table, small BBQ grill, and a lantern pole at each site. We checked in after regular hours, and there were volunteers on duty at the check in point to help us, as well as a campground host. Park ranger even stopped by as we were setting up to welcome us. There was a man that was scooping out fire rings and the BBQ grills, and sweeping off the picnic tables. Really well maintained, comfy, quiet, and a fabulous golf course. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The sites by the water are beautiful and are back ins. The other sites seem to be all pull throughs in a u shape so they are a little odd to navigate your parking. The park is very nicely maintained and quiet. There is also an outside museum of old military aircraft and tanks, for your viewing pleasure. We will definitely come back here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have camped here a few times and have always enjoyed the peaceful setting. Entrance gate is locked at 10 PM. You can leave but not return until the morning. Personnel are available for emergencies. I believe quiet time is from 10 PM until 7 AM. The lake beautiful. Clean park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped here July 4-9/ Very crowded but because we reserved we were able to get a waterfront site. They close the gate at 10 PM so if you have evening plans do so early. Showers were OK but could have been cleaner. Golf course was great. Although no WIFI there is a nearby resort center and they have wireless at the convention center. Just a short walk or drive from the campsite. Work campers were very nice and helpful. Would reccomend this place the 4th Fireworks were super. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Roads around lake are blacktop with gravel sites. Roads off lake are gravel with gravel sites. Sites were more or less level. Lots of trees in park with very large 9000 acres lake to swim or fish in. Play ground equipment for kids. Late check in office. Cell phones may not work here. Park is very large. If you wish to ride an old train "Sam Short Line" runs into park. Lots of old WWII equipment and museum on display near office. No noise in park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our favorite state park in Georgia. We camp here often as we live only 45 minutes away. Most all campsites are spaced way apart, giving you a lot of privacy. New marina opening April, will have pontoon boat rentals, and ski boat rentals. Premium sites are on the lake or are right across the street from the lake front sites. Level sites, with campground on the lakeside having paved road, and other campground hard packed dirt and sand. You won't be disappointed at this campground. Been visiting since 2002. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campsites in this park are gravel, quite long (especially the pull-thrus) and typically level with a separate area for picnic table, BBQ grill and fire pit; we have a 30 ft class A. We had site #21 right on the water. Bathhouse and laundry nearest our site was closed for renovation and one dump station was also closed. The other dump was easy to access. Nightly rate includes a $3 parking fee in addition to camping rate. Enjoyed the museum at the park and highly recommend a day trip to Andersonville National Historic Monument. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent campground. This is our favorite campground for just easy relaxing and lake fishing. Nice museum of military artifacts, nice fishing piers, good restaurant in the park, nature trails, lots of wildlife, waterfowl, etc. Watch your pets in the warmer months, Alligators are numerous. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We loved the park. It was clean, tidy and well maintained. We had a pull through site directly on the lake. We kayaked to our heart's content. It was easy to get in and out. We brought our bikes and rode all over the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great campground located in the Ga Veterans State Park. SAM Shortline Excursion railroad makes a stop on the property. Most sites are either lake front or lake view. A nice place to stay! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great CG. Level, shaded sites. The Excursion Train isn't to be missed. In addition to
the Carter historic sites, you can get off in Americus and tour Habitat For Humanity's Global Village. We'd definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent State Park that is just a few miles from I-75. It is a close drive to Plains,
Andersonville, and other tourist sites. A train stops at the park and will take you directly to Plains and the Jimmy Carter farm site. The museum is outstanding! There are many activites for children at the park. It is also very convenient for snowbirds. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Park is very nice, roads, sites all clean. Most RV sites are on Lake Blackshear. Lot of trees to park under. Kids would have a good time here. Park had 1308 acres of land. No road noise. Some noise from boats at times. Swimming pool was very large. A fun place to visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice campground with interesting veterans museum inside the park office building. Outdoor display of old military planes and tanks adjacent to park office. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
[ 8 / 10 ]
9 Miles West of Cordele. Owned by State of GA. Reservations through ReserveAmerica. On Lake Blackwell. Nice quiet place, although fishing boats can wake you up at all hours! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
