We arrived the first day of the season. The grounds are beautiful and each of the sites, with very few exceptions, are flat with paved pads, packed gravel for the table area plus charcoal grill and lantern post. Most are in view of Lake Lanier, if not directly on the lake. Great shady sites. There is a small swimming beach area in the middle of the campground area which is open to the public as well as the campers. When the site closes at 10:30 pm, campers are inside until the park reopens the next morning. This campground is quiet and personnel are very nice. When we were there, though, we had problems with the water at our site, which may have been due to non-use during the park's winter closure. There was mud and a silt-like debris in the water at our site. The central bathhouse also had problems with water. When toilets were flushed, water backed up from the floor drain between the toilet stalls, spewing water and dirt over the floor. Again, this may be due to winter non-use and the need for seasonal maintenance but it was a nasty surprise nonetheless. The negatives were not enough to keep us from returning in the future, though, since the campground really is a beautiful location with well maintained grounds. The rate reflects a Senior discount. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
All sites here appeared to be back in. Ours was spacious, with a concrete pad for the rig, and a crushed gravel area for living. It came complete with a picnic table, hook for a lantern, and fire ring. We were lakefront, though it was a bit of a walk through the woods to the edge. There was a nice little beach area across the road. The sites are wooded with a lot of space between you and your neighbor. The lake is used by all sorts of motorized water vessels, and it was little loud at times. The bath house was very clean, and nice, if a little dark at night. The gate staff was nice. There is NO store or ice available on site. The access to the park was a little strange, taking you through a residential subdivision to get there. Signage was minimal, but the GPS found it just fine. They close the gates at 8 pm. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have camped here three times now and have camped at two other corps of engineer campgrounds. They are all excellent. Bald Ridge has a large section of very wooded sites that are right next to the water. Sites are well spaced. CG is always quiet. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Outstanding CG, with huge level sites, many right on the water or with great views, and lots of space between them. Some sites have better view of water than others. Good roads for easy maneuvering. The shade was great, but not for satellite reception. Very nice staff and the CG is very well-run. I reluctantly entered this review as I thought I'd like to keep it a secret! Can't wait to come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Awesome...wonderful campground. Wish they had sewer we would have stayed 2 weeks. Lots are spacious and private. Waterfront lots are really nice. One section is very wooded for tent camping. We were in a 40' motor home and picked a larger lot that was not as shady. Quiet. My MiFi card was slow. Hosts are super. Nice dock and ramp. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is very clean and well maintained. The camper spaces are large and spread out. You are not arranged in rows; not on top of each other. Our space was shaded most all day except 1-3:30pm. Our lot was very level - all we had to do was disconnect from the truck and support with the jacks. Most all camper spots have paved/concrete driveway and pads for the camper and vehicle. (Please use the campground website to see photos of each site. The photos represent the sites well.) Our camping picnic area was level and surfaced with fine crushed gravel. We liked it, but does require rugs and sweeping out of the camper regularly. We had plenty of space to set up games, roll out our awning, tie out the doggie, and enjoy ourselves. The campground itself is very quiet and peaceful. Also, the campground is mostly level, so it is enjoyable for bicycles and kids. Most of the noise came from the boaters on the lake. The lake level is down, but that didn't stop us from fishing. The bathhouse was clean and had a wonderful shower system with stainless walls and adjustable pressurized showerheads. The bathhouse can get a little steamy in the late evening, but understandable at the end of a hot day. We enjoyed our visit and will definitely camp here again in the near future. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
LOVE this Army Corps Engineer CG located off Exit 16, GA-400N, Cumming GA area. Golden Age Senior rate if $16/night. We stayed 2-nights this trip. All sites are either adjacent to water or have view of water. Very easy access, paved roads, paved pad for MH, and compacted gravel for patio area. We've been here 3-times in past 13-months. Three different sites...all of which have been wonderful. Only sad part of this is early closing of park this year on Sep. 8th. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very quiet and beautiful park with many large, level, and shaded sites with almost all having a view of the lake. This is by far the cleanest COE park we've visited. The hosts were friendly and accommodating. The only reason this park doesn't get a 10 rating is because of the lack of sewer connections, although it does have a dump station. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place would get a 10 IF the lake was up. I can imagine how much nicer it would have been if the lake didn't shrink, allowing lots of red clay/mud to enter into the fantastic view and mess up me and my kayak. We stay at lots of COE campgrounds, and this is one of the nicest as far as design and utilities. The sites are very large and mostly heavily treed, and Uncle Sam is actually mowing the grass here! Senior rate of $16 is higher than most COE parks, but is still worth the $32 regular rate. The only negative other than the lake level is no sewer, which is pretty standard where the grounds can get flooded. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has been a family favorite of ours for more than twenty years. In 1990 we paid $18/day and pitched tents on really nice tent pads with access to water and electricity. Now, in 2012 it is $32/day, 50amp service and a pull through site with a 5th wheel. If this CG had sewer hook ups I would rate it a ten. Sites are level, several have steep driveways that cause all but the shortest rigs to drag. Spacing between sites is very comfortable. Trees and brush are so thick that privacy is really nice. Shade is heavy for most sites, a clear shot to pick up satellite signals are hard to come by in two of the three loops. The one loop with the boat ramp has most of the pull throughs and these have little to no shade. No matter how you come at it, this is one of the COE's crown jewels. It is a shame they close for the winter, the demand for this campground is so great it would stay full even in the dead of winter. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice Federal Park that we continue to visit after many years. The sites are generous, the grounds are well kept and all the people who work here are friendly and helpful. This facility is very strict about quiet hour, and no alcohol consumption. The gate is locked from 10pm until 7am. There is a new playground for the kids. The only negative is that the low water in Lake Lanier makes the sandy beach useless. The campground usually clears out on Sunday and is fairly unpopulated until Friday. It is open only for the Summer months. A reservation is recommended for the weekends. Each site has water and electricity. There is a pull through dump and several clean shower houses. The washers and dryers are very reasonably priced. We camped here for 2 weeks. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This COE is our family favorite. Virtually not a "bad" site in the campground. All sites have been upgraded to 50 amp service. When the lake is not down due to drought, the swimming beach with its St. Augustine grass lawn area and thick, soft sand beach are really nice. Shade trees are abundant but there is one section (big rig pull through sites) that are open and 'satellite ready'. I would have rated this campground at least a 9 if it were not for the new rates of $32/night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is a beautiful place to camp for the weekend with lots of shade trees and easy site access. There is no sewer, but I knew that going in. The lake was very low due to drought, but it is still a wonderful place to go. Top of my return list. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
After deciding last minute on Wednesday to go camping this weekend, I found that this place was the only place with 1 site left to reserve within 200 miles. So, I booked it. I took my daughter (8) on Friday night after work and my wife was to join me on Saturday afternoon after soccer games with the other kids. The campground is amazing! Very nice and clean. The sites were filled with families enjoying their weekends! Kids making new friends and playing together and grown ups swapping stories about life. HOWEVER, as it seems to be the case more often than not lately around the Corps of Engineer campgrounds, the "Campground Hosts" are a couple of battle axes that have the personalities of a freshly kicked badger. They were the talk of the campers in our loop...one guy had a large group of family with him and the host REFUSED to rent him a site to expand to because he "already had a site in his name". This site and about 4 others on our loop alone remained EMPTY all weekend. At $32/night, they are already expensive, but to have someone wanting to rent a site for the weekend and be refused??? Only to keep it empty all weekend? After the camper expressed his feelings on the situation, it became the hosts priority to harass this guy all weekend...constantly driving by his site, looking for anything to hound him about...1 tire of the six on his vehicle/boat trailer was off the paved drive and on the dirt...key word dirt. The host called a park ranger 2 days later to make sure he was ticketed. (The Park Ranger only wrote a warning, though). Constant harassment about where he could park his boat, his family's vehicles (site limit is 3, so we allowed one to stay on our site). Mind you, he TRIED to get another site to better accommodate his group and was REFUSED. We'll stay there again, and make sure the "Gate Nazi" has a job for the season, but the Corps really needs to screen these people. THE HOST chose this career path, if he doesn't like it, go do something else!!! We camped here in a Tent.
I agree, this campground is awesome in every respect. Restrooms and showers are very clean. My wife even like the bathrooms and showers and she is picky. With the senior pass, the rate was discounted 50%. We had a back in site right on the water and had an easy time navigating around the campground with our 45' motorhome. Our Verizon MiFi worked pretty well. We will definitely come again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped here as a shake out of our newly purchased motorhome. Was pleasantly surprised by the large sites, well kept grounds, and pleasant staff. All sites are on the lake and paved and level. There is a beach and hiking trails as well as boat access and fishing piers. Would have given a higher rating but as with the COE campgrounds around Lake Lanier, no sewer or cable hookup. It is a beautiful place to camp for the weekend with lots of shade trees and easy site access. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have camped in many COE Parks around the country and this is one of the nicest we have ever stayed in. The campsites are large, level, convenient to the 3 bathhouses. The bathrooms were clean with a washer and dryer at each one. Most sites have a view of the lake. We stayed in #58. I did not want to leave, the trees were just changing and the sunrise over the lake was just pretty. Wish I was back in #58. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful campground. Large, well spaced out paved sites. Our site was level, although some within the campground were not. Price reflects Golden Age 50% off (price is $27 - $13.50 for Golden Age pass holder.) Quiet. This is our second stay at this campground. We would definitely stay here again when we are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We go to this campground several times a year and love it. It is a great place for kids to ride bikes, play on the playgrounds, and swim in the lake. Most sites are large, wooded, and have view of the lake. The bath houses are typical for state parks. Clean but not air conditioned and a bit buggy. It is just a few miles to a ton of shopping and dining. I only gave a 8 because of lack of sewer hookup, WiFi, and cable TV. We will continue to go here for years to come. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great campground. It has large sites, some that are right on Lake Lanier. Very close to many shopping centers and restaurants. We take our boat and have a great time. Nice for weekend getaways. The only downfall is no sewer connection or cable. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We loved this campground. We spent a week in site #43 which is a pull through with the patio on the lake. Park roads and sites are paved. Sites have 30 amp and water but no sewer. There are 3 loops, each one has a comfort station with restrooms, showers and a washer/dryer ( .75 cents each). The only garbage collection station is at the park entrance, sort of a pain but it prevents the garbage truck from coming through the campground. Atlanta is about 35 miles south. Plan on sitting in traffic if you go during the week. The town of Cumming with any and all needed shopping, etc., is one exit south. This is a great park and we will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here and it was very windy, cold, and it snowed. We had fun. Very nice and clean camp site with lots of space. Down side, no heat in bath house, lack of hot water, and a trash can at the end of site would be very nice for long stays. Those are the 3 reasons I rate this an 8. Please visit, it is a very nice camp park. You will go back, I'm sure of it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 4 / 10 ]
All in all, this was a nice park. Our chief complaints were that the wash house near our site had neither heat nor hot water (the daytime temps were in the 50s, cold enough to make a person forget what they went into the wash house for in the first place). In addition, a camper in a much site at the other end of the lake had his music turned up so loud that it sounded like it was next door...and it was like that for most of the day. On the plus side, there were no city lights, no traffic noises, and each site seemed to have a good view of the lake. We had a pull-thru site, but would opt for the back-ins next time as they are shaded by trees and more directly on the lake. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an excellent park. Large sites, well kept, clean and relaxing. Sewers would warrant a 10. Southern drought equals a low lake, but well worth the trip. Personnel were very personable and quite helpful. Park is not far (less than 5 miles) from major shopping and restaurants. Too bad federal funding forces early closure, I could have stayed here longer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We frequent this park and things have not changed. Beautiful sites on or near Lake Lanier. Some but not all the sites have 50 amp, but none have sewer or cable. Campground hosts were pleasant. The restrooms are outdated, but clean. Many attractions and restaurants are within a 10 to 15 minute drive. Not much to do in campground except the lake. There is a small beach, bike riding is easy since campground is relatively flat. Childrens playground is small. Most sites are big rig friendly especially the ones near the boat ramp. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our favorite park. We live nearby and come here as often as we can since it is big rig friendly at most sites. As far as we are concerned, this is the best campground we have ever gone to and we have been camping for 12 years in various equipment. I would give it a 10 if it had sewer hookups and if we haven't had repeated problems with letting guests in who come to visit. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wonderful park with breathtaking views of the lake. All facilities were very clean. Concrete pads at all sites. Rangers strictly enforce all rules which makes for a pleasant stay. Two campsites near us had dogs that were left all day in the heat while their owners were on the lake and the rangers dealt with that quickly to protect the dogs. Just wish it had sewer connections! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We stopped off here one evening on our way to north Georgia. We had made reservations on a back-in site. We got there just after dark. The park attendant recommended another site that was a big pull-thru since we said we were going to be leaving the next morning. We didn't even have to unhook or use leveling blocks as the concrete pad was very long and very level. Setting up the satellite dish was very easy. Our site was in the open. However, there are plenty of sites in the shade. Most sites face the water and just about every site has some view of the water. This is a very nice campground and we will definitely go back here. The only reason it didn't get a 10 was because it didn't have sewage. For me, a 9 means excellent! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We loved this Army Corps of Engineers campground. Our first trip in our new TT for more
than 2 nights and we were here 2 nights on our journey. Nice beach area for swimming-assuming it is warm. We saw the large, beautiful lake and all the leaves were changing on the trees. Many bring their boats and jet skis as there is a dock right in the park. Large sites, all have BBQ, fire ring and picnic table. All are paved & level sites. Most beautiful views ever. We would love to go back here again. We were here October 2004 in a hybrid TT. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 10 / 10 ]
This is a US Army Corps of Engineers Park and is our favorite place to stay. It is best to book early, they fill up quick. They do have some first come first serve sites, but the fill up also. The restrooms are cleaned constantly along with the grounds being maintained daily. Many of the sites are very shady and private. We have enjoyed every stay at this campground. The attendants are on top of any issue you bring to their attention. There is a dump station available but no sewer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is my family's favorable campground closer to our home, especially if we are able to secure reservation to one of the lakefront sites. If you do, you will have an abundant (three D) view of Lake Lanier. The lake level is so full this period that you can either fish from your site or swim right at your site. The restroom was rebuilt recently and is always clean. The couple on duty during our two separate stays are very friendly and helpful. The entire site is very clean and well taken care off. The only set back is the fact that you cannot access the campground within the hours of 10:30 pm and 7:30 am. The COE should consider installing a key pad so campers can enter and exit the campground after hours. We will surely continue to camp here for our short-term campings. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice small campground. We camped on the point in site# 17. This area was very nice and shaded and even a breeze, but could not access the lake due to the seawall and fence. Many of the sites are backwards aka picnic table and sidewalk are behind camper-a little awkward, but manageable. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A smaller COE campground but still very nice with nicely spaces sites. A few sites are on the end of a peninsula and have amazing views. CG is very convenient to north Atlanta. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had our reservations made and confirmed January 1st, 2012 for our arrival in May 2012 for 11 days. The cost reflects Senior rates. Our friends also made their reservations at the same time, we were talking on the phone and online at the same time picking out our spots together. That is a great benefit to all people! Then COE people contacted us and had to change our site due to have the park renovated and our original site was not going to be RV sites any longer including our friend's site. So we had to coordinate again with the reservation people on the telephone and finally it worked out, we thought! When we arrived to Cumming a day early (we stayed at another place for one night), we decided to go check out our spot at the campground and it was just before closing around 9:30PM. The camp host, Winn, was so kind to help us and allow us to see our sites before closing time. When we looked at our new site, it was obviously way too small for our travel trailer and our truck. We immediately went back to the camp host and said there was no way we or our friend could ever fit in those two new spots! We are too big. All in all, everything worked out okay one night before our arrival because of Winn's personal attention to make things right. We even were able to take care of our friends and get them a spot for their much larger 5th wheel. While we were visiting the park for 11 days, that is when it was rescheduled (the second or third time) to redo the park with huge machinery to break up concrete and asphalt. Other machinery to make new roads to the new campsites. More machinery to lay the stinky and sticky asphalt down. The people working did a great job especially the asphalt guys, they took extra care when doing the asphalt around our rig and didn't, Did Not get any oil or asphalt onto our rig whatsoever! They had no control of the smell for a few days and that was unpleasant. I don't believe this park will be appropriately opened for travel trailers or 5th wheels since I believe they made it more accommodating for tent style camping. There was one launch open that I saw for boating on the lake. Now that they have redone the park at this specific loop, the Sawnee Campground, it will be beautiful for someone, but not us. We have a Travel Trailer and our friends have a 5th wheel. I would suggest to find another COE park on the other side of Lake Sydney Lanier to have a pleasant time. The most positive time was the Camp hosts. They made our visit a lot better! Camp hosts are very important and necessary. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Breathtaking views all around us! Beautiful lake for swimming and boating. Campground has a boat ramp and beach area. Clear and clean water to keep cool in. Marina close by (15 min drive) where we rented a boat at a reasonable price. Sites were large but not necessarily private. Big rigs will not make friends on the roads leading to the campground because the road is narrow and curvy. Plenty of room to navigate inside the park. No sewer or cable (these would have made my rating a 10). Clean restrooms. Did I mention the view? I'll be back again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park with fantastic views of the lake. Site was a pull-through. Lots of shade and a fun park for the kids with the lake right outside your door. Picnic spots for our site was under a tree and right by the lake was great. Staff was very nice and helpful. Bathrooms could use an update, but they are clean. We stayed a week and will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very small campground on Lake Lanier. The views of the lake are incredible! The campground was quiet and a great place to walk, bike, and relax. We maintained cell service the entire time. The host was very nice and was seen quite often riding his bike through the campground checking on things. We will definitely be returning to Sawnee! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pretty little park on Lake Sidney Lanier. Sites were very level concrete and quite clean. The only reason I gave this corps park a low rating, which is unusual for me, is because the electricity was on the weak side. The voltage was around 107V with just the A/C and 12V system running. I could not run my fridge on shore power without the voltage dipping dangerously low. I would be even more concerned about this on a holiday weekend as the park was only about a quarter full when we were there. Sites 16 through 24 have very nice water views on both sides and easy water access. As usual for a corps park, the hosts were exceptionally nice. NOTE TO THOSE PASSING THROUGH TOWN: If you are heading south early the next morning, the gates do not open until 7 am, which puts you right in heavy Atlanta inbound traffic on GA-400 South. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a COE campground bought by the county. It is a solid park, and we would return. But it is an overall average visit for someone with a trailer. This was obviously all tents at one point that was converted so some site layouts are tight or not optimal. Pro's: Most spots are very shady, excellent lake views and access, site entrances may be close to one another, but sites themselves have lots of distance between sites, bathrooms clean, good rates. Con's: Watch your slides, you have a 50/50 chance of them not having enough space, many gathering area's are many steps down from where camper is parked, sites need maintenance - railroad ties are disintegrating, bath houses are often a long walk and have only 2 shower stalls (but clean). Like I said, no frills here, but solid park. We would return again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We stayed here one weekend to "try somewhere new"... loved it! the sites are a little close together for my liking, but other than that, I really enjoyed Shady Grove. We stayed in the newer section and were blown away by how beautiful it was. And although my husband wasn't crazy about the steps down to the main pad, I liked it! I really enjoyed the fact that they used large crush gravel rather than little pea gravel on the pads... less gets tracked in for me to clean! The staff was incredibly helpful as well. We came during the week to scope the park out, see what we liked and make notes as we do with all parks we are interested in. The attendant gave us a map, but then rode out to help guide us based on what we said we looked for in a site. His insight was great! We will definitely be going back! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Overall the campground is very nice and very spacious. Sites are very spread out with nice views of the lake. It's a little light on amenities but it's a county park that used to be a COE so there's not much to compete against if you need to camp in the Atlanta area. The gate locks from 10-7am and they don't give you the code so that is a bit of a hassle. The bathhouses seem to only be cleaned weekly, but all and all it's a good clean campground,for a very competitive price. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park on Lake Lanier. We live nearby, but this was our first time visiting. Plenty of room for big rigs, water pressure was good as was the electrical service. We stayed in a pull through that was terraced with the lower level being the outside area. Plenty of room for campfires, eating and general set up without being cluttered right next to the camper. The site we stayed on has a great view of the lake. We would camp here again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here at the end of June in our mayden voyage with our pop up. We loved it. Nice playground for the kids and clean showers and bathrooms. Lot's of nice campsites near the lake. Also have coin opperated Washer and dryer. Very impressed with our local campground. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
[ 7 / 10 ]
Typical COE style campground now ran by Forsyth County. In quiet residential neighborhood. Nice sites in loop 4-18 for RVs. Beautiful tent only sites in the 90's. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Note: $19/night rate is based on my monthly charge of $570. Set up here on a month-to-month basis. Extremely personable and accessible staff. Park is family owned/run and staff live in house on property. Park is very well maintained on a daily basis by a grounds-keeper. The twin lakes make for a lovely backdrop or back yard depending on your site location. Many campers are full timers who are generally clustered together on the hill at the back of the property or behind the first row of full hook up sites. Proximity is nice, roughly halfway between the town of Cumming and Alpharetta on Rt. 9. Close to GA-400 which is a 70 MPH, 40 minute straight shot to Atlanta. 10 minute drive to Market Place Blvd shops which include Wal-Mart, Target, Home Depot, Lowe's, and Best Buy. Several grocery options within a 10 minute drive. Ice and propane fill available on-site. Paid $32 to fill a 30-lb tank. The negative: No on-site laundry. I arrived here in the middle of the holiday season so ended up moving between 3 different sites before being able to set up long term. The first site was extremely convenient, right next to the office, full hook up, close proximity to Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, since all sites are gravel, this particular one had become uneven over the years of campers moving in and out. Needed a good 6 inches of lift on the right side to even it out. After 2 weeks here, I moved to a lakeside site. Beautiful location, even gravel, but all lakefront sites are water/electric only. There is a dump station in that lot, but no hook up at the site. Very nice for short term stays, however. They advertise free Wi-Fi, but it is fairly restricted to the area around the office at the entrance. I was able to use it sparingly from my lakefront site if I was in the end of my trailer nearest the office. Even my final spot just up the hill from the office had unreliable connection at times. I would most definitely return here if I end up back in the Atlanta area. I absolutely enjoyed the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Camped here because it was the closest big rig friendly park to the Confederate Nationals at River Bend. Nice park, interesting lay out, definitely big rig friendly and they take you to the site first to make sure. Our site was gravel, in a large gravel parking area, but was very easy to back into. Electric, water and sewer are ground level so your slide will go over it if need be. Satellite worked fine, not blocked by trees. There are sites in a wooded area that can be tricky for big rigs. The creativity of the layout of this park is not completely appreciated until it rains. Spent 6 days here and it rained 4. The gravel parking area drained well. Lake sites are beautiful, big rig friendly, gravel in a gravel lot. If you are at a site with no sewer, they will loan you one of those blue tote tanks. There are no amenities, except propane, but everything is close. Employees are helpful and non-intrusive. Not good for kids, nothing to do. Even without amenities, this was a very nice park and I would come here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a beautiful park. We are parked right next to the office so our view isn't the best in the park, but you don't have to wander far out your front door to see the lakes and enjoy the grounds. They have a well manicured dam that splits the lake and you can walk out and sit on the far side. They have picnic tables at every site, and have added bench swings and shade trees at strategic points along the lake so that you can fully enjoy the beauty. The owners have even added doggie doo stations around the park for pet owner convenience. While they do not have any amenities like laundry, public restrooms or a pool, they do have propane on site. I really like that you can pick up the latest Red Plum advertiser in the office for local coupons, and they also have catalogs and business cards for local businesses like Schwan's. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very clean and quiet campground. No laundry or public restrooms but that really didn't matter to us. There were quite a few campers there but not many people. We watched the fireworks over the lake in different directions. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice staff with basic (but tight) accommodations in North Atlanta region. The park is tidy and even the long-termers keep things fairly neat around their rigs. My only beef is that for $30 a night, you'd expect at least a restroom facility and laundromat. Otherwise, it's fine if you need to be near the city. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is conveniently located off of Exit 13 on GA400. This is our second time to stay here and we highly recommend it for an overnight stop. The office staff are friendly and helpful. We arrived on a Sunday when the office is closed and had our site paperwork waiting for us as promised. There seem to be a large number of permanent residents but all seemed very friendly. The grounds are clean and the sites are adequately large enough for big rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rated a 7 since our space was on the lake. Great view. No sewer, but that's what the ad said. The space as well as most of the park was hard packed gravel. Not sexy, but no dust. Electric and water was no problem. Wi-Fi was very strong. Verizon had a tower that you could see from the CG. Now this is why I rated a 9 CG a 7. Garbarge was at the far end of the park up a hill. The roads in the park had speed bumps that were way too high. Even at dead slow, our RV bounced and swayed way too much. There was no excuse for them to be like this. We would come back, but probably not on the lake since you have to unhook every couple of days to empty tanks. Notwithstanding the few negatives we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 10 days to visit the grand kids. The view was very nice and quiet. The setting is very beautiful and if you are into lakes, a perfect site. The locals are very friendly. They would have earned a higher rating if they had Wi-Fi and cable - a must nowadays. They also could use a walking or hiking path to exercise. The spot we had (6) was very hard to level and zero shade. I would strongly suggest you get a "premium site" as they are level according to the locals, have shade and easier to pull in. They have only one trash location near office - quite a walk in the rain. Stay away from the lakeside sites without sewer as people told us the bugs are "very active". We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice park conveniently located for us to visit family. The park was packed and we were given a site on what amounted to a gravel parking lot ringed by full hook-up sites. It rained a lot during our 5 night stay and although there were puddles they were easy to work around, and there was sufficient gravel so things did not get muddy. The hook-ups were a little confusing as there were 2 different electrical boxes. My first choice was upright but had no juice. The other was laid down at about a 45 degree angle and had both 30 and 50 amp outlets. Best I can figure the odd angle was intentional as all of the boxes were the same ??? The office folks were friendly and helpful. I'm sure we'll be back since this is the most convenient park for us to visit family. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We're glad to have discovered that place. Well away from any noisy roads but close to shopping. Lots of long-term campers what leaves little shaded sites to overnighters. We were lucky to get one with a huge tree providing some shade. Still the AC had a hard time to keep up with the summer heat. The site was a spacious gravel, fairly level one. Good access to the hookups. Very quiet day and night. We didn't use any facilities during our three night stay. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a great park. Everything is kept neat and clean. The sites are level gravel. We had a site that backed up to one of the two beautiful lakes. There was no traffic noise, and this was perfect for a nice quite place to spend a few days. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is very nice. The sites are level gravel and the staff is very helpful. The grounds are well maintained and the 2 lakes are very beautiful. The sites on the lakes have w/e only, and the full h/u sites are located above the water. There is no Wi-Fi or laundry, but the satellite signal was good. We stayed in a 42' mh and will return on our next trip. The area has shopping and restaurants if you need them. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Upon arriving at the RV park, we were shocked at the beauty of this park. Two beautiful lakes surrounded by large trees, with a walking path between the two lakes. It is an unbelievable site sitting right in a suburban area of Atlanta. The bonus was the fishing and the frogs. We were only there for two nights, so we asked for a lake front site (no sewer on the lake) -- unfortunately, it had no shade. On our next visit, we will ask for a site in the trees. This campground is close to everything in the Atlanta area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful RV park on a small lake with lots of maintained grass areas. There are bench swings and fun fishing. If you want a lake front site you won't have sewer and they do not have showers or bathrooms. No laundry either but it is so very peaceful with friendly owners. They do have a dump site and an area to wash your RV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First - the park is better than a seven. But I can not give it more due to the following: 1. Very unlevel lot. 2. Wi-Fi too weak to be dependably usable. 3. Prime spots had no sewer connection. 4. No washer/dryer. 5. No restroom/showers. 6. No cable and very weak TV air signal. Back to the good - the park is beautiful and well maintained. Staff is friendly (I agree with the other reviewers, its all how you approach someone). Very quite. I would actually stay again due to the closeness to our son. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved our stay in site with lake views. Quiet, yet really quick access to the freeway and every possible service. Common areas were beautifully maintained, friendly staff. The catch and release lakes were a great hit with the grandchildren. We stayed 6 weeks as we had business to attend to in Atlanta. There are no common showers or restrooms - hence we could not review them. We camped here in a Motorhome.

The campground was just a gravel lot, with mostly transient workers as neighbors. The lots by the lake were nice, but most had no sewer. This is a place to just sleep, if you're visiting the Atlanta area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I think this is one of the nicest parks anywhere. It's always neat and clean, I stayed here last year too, and the people are very nice. If I lived in Atlanta I would leave my trailer here and use it as my weekend getaway. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed at this beautiful park for a month. It is so peaceful and serene. The whole park is so well kept and clean. If you like bird watching, there are so many here to watch. The landscaping in the spring, with all the azaleas is beautiful. The owners are all so friendly and helpful. It is so quiet at night you can hear "a pin drop". We will definitely stay here again, but next time for a longer stay.

I do not know what happened with the other reviews. This is a fine campground. The gentleman in charge is nice and helpful. The son in the other reviews is the gentleman I speak of. I find that how I treat people is how they treat me. There is a nice lake and fishing. It is very quiet. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Past good reviews must have been by folks passing through for a few days. We were required to stay here due to a job commitment. There is a small lake and there are tree lined streets. The tree lined streets are used by perminant residents. Cable TV is not available. The Wi Fi signal coming from the office is so weak it is not usable. Since our wagon train style lay-out was topped with loose gravel and numerous house cats were allowed to run wild leaving their deposits near the RVs, we named our area "The Wagon Train Litter Box." The short street that leads to the park is littered with several inhabited dilapted mobile homes. If the family is originally from the south, Southern hospitality is not apparent and their personality borders on rude. We will Not be coming back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for a couple of months due to work. The campground is nice and well located and a lot of long term campers. Lakes are nice and park is well kept. The only complaint i have is the hospitality of the owners son. He is not very nice, very rude to everybody that comes in contact with him. Avoid him if at all possible. The owners of the park are very nice though and congenial. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I really loved this campground. The lakes were beautiful and I was backed right up lakeside. It's a beautiful place and the manager was very nice and obviously interested in making sure you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately the wifi was down, a lightning hit, but it may be repaired by now. Excellent cellphone service. This is a beautiful campground I can't imagine anyone not liking it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We parked right next to the lake by the dam. It was a gorgeous site and quiet. Unfortunately, no sewer by the lake but short-term it is not a problem. It appears that there are many long-time residents here but there are several sites open for overnight stays. Free wi-fi from the rig but no cable tv and setting up TV was difficult, local channels are weak. We loved the park and would come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is another park we stay at often, as my brother lives only 10 minutes away. It's older, and has many permanent residents, but everyone is quite friendly. It is close to route 400, that goes into Atlanta, so the traffic is sometimes hectic in the afternoon, but if you plan your trips, this should not be a problem. We enjoy our stays there, and recommend this park to anyone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here during the fall. We actually used to live less than 10 miles from here & never even knew it was here. It's close to major Hwy, but still off beaten path. It's a quiet and clean park. It looks like there are quite a few full-timers sites. Some of the lake sites have no sewer hookups. We stay in a premium site for a reasonable monthly rate and have a beautiful lake view. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is an excellent campground. Clean and the employees are friendly and helpful. I would rate it a 10 if only it had facilities and recreation. No pool, no laundry, no Wi-Fi, no clubhouse, no groceries. Beautiful view of lakes but no swimming and have not seen or talked to anyone that has pulled a fish out of the lakes. Shopping is convenient. No one socializes here, as most are visiting overnight, or if long-term, are working long hours due to commute times. Highly recommed this park if staying a week or less, or if working. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
