Camp Cherry Log was a very enjoyable side trip on our route to our family vacation in Florida this year... The area was scenic and beautiful and the park attendants were sooooo friendly. We didn't spend much time at the park itself because this was only a 1-day stopover and we spent a great deal of time in town, taking a scenic railway tour among other touristy things to do. Very pleasant experience nonetheless and we would recommend to anyone without hesitation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is in a beautiful and remote area which appealed to us. It is an old campground though with very narrow sites unsuitable for rigs with slide outs. Our 27 foot fifth wheel with one slide out would not fit and we ended up leaving. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We discovered this Campground at the Tampa RV show and were excited to find it. It, apparently, is a semi-private CG located within a 5500 acre gated development. The sites are beautiful and very secluded. However, getting a reservation was a two day event, three weeks prior to our visit. Once we finally arrived at the gate, they had our anme, but the gate guard couodn't give us correct directions to the camping area. Pulling a 36' Fifth Wheel makes it quite difficult to make U-turns on narrow mountain roads. Once we finally (!) arrived at our camp site, the water and power hookups were still under lock and key, so we waited an hour before the 'ranger' came to unlock, only to find 30 amp service, and we need 50. Although we were told they had 'full hook-up', we had no TV, not even with our antenna. Wifi is very iffy on the mountains and it too, was not available. However, the area is just beautiful. The sites could use a little care, but they were adequate. We enjoyed our stay, but wish we would have received the proper information prior to our visit. By the way, the roads leading to the campsite, although paved, are very narrow and curvy, and can look quite scary at times, especially to my wife who's my navigator. It was hard for her to navigate with her eyes closed. LOL. I would not return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Camped here in October with my RV club. We came here for the Apple Festival. The park was very nice and the people running it were very friendly. Will come back here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The Diamond Lure RV & Campground in Ellijay, Georgia was a wonderful experience! We visited in July 2009, and the grounds were well-maintained and manicured, the lake was magnificent, and the restroom/shower/laundry facilities were very clean and accessible. The folks running the campground were very welcoming and friendly, answered all of our questions (no matter how trivial they may have been), and made us feel right at home from the start. We will definitely stay there again even if just to talk with the friendly people who run the place! Diamond Lure is a very nice choice for camping in any type of tent or camper, by yourself or with the whole family, pets or no pets. We can't wait to visit there again and relax without having to worry about a thing! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We had camped here in 2006, and again in 2009, The change and upgrades in the campground where amazing. It is definitely a fishing destination, but the bath houses were extremely clean. The staff was very friendly and informative. The countryside and sites such as Amicalola Fall were breathtaking. We thought the rate very reasonable as well. All in all very peaceful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Diamond Lure was a huge disappointment. This was our first outing in the new RV, and we were so excited. But Diamond Lure Campground turned out to be a trailer park with nothing to do on site. We were in the area called "Social Circle" where we were the only weekend campers. The rest of the people in the area were permanent residents and we felt like we were invading their territory. The site was very cramped (even for a pop-up) with one side sloped down and the other side heavily wooded. We placed the pop-up far over to the wooded side hoping to have space on the sloped side to set up the awning and chairs. Even with the camper pushed back into the woods, the chairs were very tight and we could hardly move around. There was no space for the kids to play as we were right up against the road. Our site did not have a fire pit, but some others did. The bath house left a lot to be desired with saturated indoor/outdoor carpet on the floors and holes in the walls around the plumbing. Some might say it was clean, but for a woman with children, it was not acceptable. There was a pretty lake, but I only saw a few sites around it that seemed to be reserved for the larger full-sized RVs. All in all, if you only need a small space, don't mind a semi-clean bathroom, and don't mind leaving your camp site for entertainment, Diamond Lure is ok. We, however, will not be returning. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park, near town, staff very helpful, laundry, hot tub on top of a building with great view of mountains. Stayed for 3 days same time last year. Will return next year if in area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park and facilities were nice and clean. Manager was very friendly and helpful. We stayed here for 2 months - nice shady setting with a fire pit and picnic table. Even though close to highway - it was quiet. All people in the park were friendly and it was a very nice atmosphere! I would recommend a short or long term stay here! We paid a monthly rate so the nightly rate I posted may not be accurate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice but rustic campground. We were there for the apple festival and all spaces were taken. They said the two weekend of the festival were the only time they were this crowded. The camp manager and the owner were there both days we were there trying to make sure everything went well for everyone. When making reservations, it is best to talk to (manager) than the owner. I will stay there again. The interior roads and pads are gravel. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We only live about 30 miles from this campground, but it is just far enough away that we can feel we have left the "rat race" behind. On the web site for Plum Nelley our 2nd motorhome is in the picture. This time we camped in our motorhome and my sister, brother-in-law and friends stayed in a cabin. We had a great time, as usual. Memorial Day is a party every year. Last year we had our motorhome, 2 pop-ups, a travel trailer and one of the cabins for the Labor Day weekend. The whole family was there, including 2 teenagers. The hostess, Tina, is wonderful, as are Bill & Deannie. We are thinking about going back for Labor Day again this year. We love to shop in the antique shops in Ellijay and go to the apple festival every year. We highly recommend this campground. It is not fancy but it's clean and the people are always nice. And they like dogs!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.

We loved this park. You are nestled on top of a bluff and can see mountains all around you. We stayed here for a month so we could do a lot of sightseeing and geocaching, so price reflects monthly rate. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The wifi was iffy at times, but the host would reboot the system anytime I ask her to. There are so many things to do and see in this area. They don't have cable TV all over the camp yet, but they are working on that. They allowed us to hook up to theirs, so that was an extra we didn't expect. If we are ever in this area again we would stay here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice campground host. Laundry facilities were very useful. The campground is on a bluff above the main highway. A dirt trail leads down to a pond and back up the other side. There seemed to be a large number of longer-term residents at one end of the park. Good value. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Plum Nelly is a good site for an over night and thats about it. Website sure differs from what we saw. Pond was at the bottom of what I would call an old overgrown rock quarry and I am not sure this is really a pond. Maybe a mud hole is a better description. All the sites were somewhat level with good hook ups and close to the main road for easy access. Road noise was not a problem. The one and only rest room we found was a converted metal shed with a wall seperating the washer and dryer from the toilet and shower. It was clean, but very little heat during the 37 degree nights. All in all a good place to make an over night stop. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
