This park was very decent - clean, level sites, fairly easy to get into. Our site #3 had a steep grade to the muddy lake and the boat traffic was busy. Thought it was strange to sign a waiver regarding -NO- alcohol beverages. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is OK... nothing spectacular. A lot of after hours traffic. Folks driving around at night and walking at night. I wasn't crazy about that. Also a little on the loud side. The water was really muddy and gross. Had the kids been with us, they would not have gotten in! We might stay here again, without the kids though. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This COE campground just re-opened after being closed for a couple of years. It is right on Lake Sidney Lanier. A lot of the sites are on the water, but access is limited due to an abrupt drop off. The sites are large and pretty level, with a large, level area for the picnic table and fire pit. There is a boat ramp and a swimming area as well. There is also a washer and dryer in the bath house. We were in site 27, and it would combine well with site 28 if there were several people traveling together. The camp host was great- he suggested sites, then let us go pick our own. Everything was clean and neat, well laid out and exceeded my expectations. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park just opened this summer and we were excited to check it out. All sites are paved, no gravel, and many are pull-through. The sites are not lake front, but some are lake view. It is heavily wooded. Some of the sites I would consider "buddy sites" because they are pull-throughs with one site slightly higher on the pavement than the other, and right next to each other without much privacy. A huge plus for us was the fact that each site has a gray water "bucket' that is dug into the ground with charcoal in it (presumably to absorb smell) and you are allowed to open your gray valve and just let it drain into it. You still have to go to dump station for black water, but most campers can easily go 2 weeks or more with an on-board tank on your RV anyway. That saved me a lot of time dragging a portable tank back and forth, which I have been accustomed to with most GA state parks since most don't have gray water at each site. The park is very nice, with clean comfort stations that have drink vending machines. There is a small gift shop with overpriced items and camp supplies. 3 walking trails, the longest is 2 miles, and a short ADA paved trail that is only 300 yards long but ends with several sitting areas with swings. The beach and playground area is huge with plenty of parking and more swings. No pets on the beach, which is understandable. The beach is in a private cove area so there was little to no wake from the heavily used Lake lanier. We saw several kayakers and stand up paddleboards. Kayak rentals are coming soon according to the manager. 2 boat ramps inside the park with plenty of room to park your boat and turn around. Overall a very nice park We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is clean and under utilized. I wish the COE parks were open year around. The fall is the best time of year. We had a great shaded spot and absolutely no traffic! The hose making rounds was the only vehicle we saw. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is wonderful. The pads are paved and fairly level. The lake views are nice and many of them have trails to the water which make it nice to pull the boat up on shore. The sites are shady and have plenty of room for canopies and chairs. The overall campground was very clean and well kept. We have stayed here several times and never had a bad experience. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My family absolutely loves this campground! We camp here about 3 weekends out of each month during the summer. The restrooms are much cleaner than I had expected, the sites are always prepped very well and the pads are pretty much level. We love the fact that the grills are emptied and the pad is blown clean after each guest. Dump station is easily accessible and well kept too. Our only complaint is that the park has such a short season! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We really enjoyed the couple who ran Duckett Mill-Grace and Clarence. They were so hospitable. Even came with their son to help us get our new TV up and running with the antenna. We were in Site 81 which was huge and right next to a jetty where we watched beautiful sunrises. It's in perfect proximity to many great places (Helen, Dahlonega, several state parks) and Gainesville is only 7 miles away, too. The only drawback was no sewer connection, but for the money, it's the best deal around. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great COE park that had plenty of shade. We had a nice back-in site that was on the lake, fishing out the back door. Very helpful staff and nice quiet spot. Only down side was the lack of sewer, but certainly not a reason to miss this great deal. Close to shopping, Would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice COE park. Restroom problems have been corrected. Many waterfront sites with water access. Our neighbors on both sides had boats pulled up on their shoreline. Areas between sites have been left rustic. Lots of privacy, trees and shade. Great cell phone reception, but only picked up four TV stations. Very friendly camp hosts and workers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is showing some wear. Missing shower heads, no bench and no hooks. Forced to put clothes on the floor. The COE usually runs a tighter ship than this. Staff was very helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very nice and well taken care of COE campground. The hosts are very helpful. Beautiful lake front sites. Bath house was close and clean. My satellite dish looked out real good, but I did not do well with antenna. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nothing much has changed since the last review in 2007. Still a nice campground. Many sites close to the water, many with good deep shade. Probably one of the nicer COE parks on Lake Lanier. Campground hosts very nice and helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground was full, but the sites didn't feel crowded, though some of the sites are close together. We were in #88 with my sister is #89. #90 is directly in front so they were mere feet from the back of a motorhome, but at least it was the back. The showers on Saturday night were our only problem. A youth group was there so there was quite a wait about 10 pm. By the time the showers were open, the water was COLD! Next time, we'll have propane for our water heater so we can use the outdoor shower. Overall, we would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a fantastic park with large, private sites right on the lake.Level concrete pads with huge patios.Big bang for the buck.We spend many weekends there & will continue to do so. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would give this park a higher rating, but there is no sewer hookup. It has sights with great views of Lake Lanier. The sight we picked had limited water access, but the park has a beach and a boat ramp. This park, like the other COE parks on the lake are spacious and excellent parks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in site 42, with a group of others that had sites 41 and 40. We were right on the lake, and close to the beach, playground and bath houses. This was our first trip here, and we will return. Some sites are not as close to the waters as others, so plan accordingly. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

We love this campground. There is a security gate front entrance, plus another security code gate to the camping area for travel trailers and motorhomes. The sites were very clean. Trash cans are provided close to each site and they are checked emptied daily. The bath facilities are kept clean. The security truck rides by frequently. Not all sites have a fire pit, but we had one this time. The water level was up, so we were able go fishing at our site. We enjoyed it and appreciate the work that goes into maintaining and securing the grounds. We had a very relaxing visit. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Senior discount rate. Spacious campground with plenty of private sites. Overlooking Lake Lanier with beautiful sunsets. Clean bathhouse, good showers. Deer roaming freely throughout park. Firewood available at checkin. Staff was helpful and friendly. Very popular park at a holidays and during summer. Level sites, some pull throughs available. Day use beach area crowded on weekends. Stayed in site 26 on point with great views. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful park with most of the sites right on the water. Sites are usually grouped together into small bunches with a large amount of space between each bunch. My cellular Internet access was super fast with Verizon (22 MB down, 15 MB up) since tower was across lake. Nice shading to help combat heat. Many sites are big rig friendly but choose carefully since there are many sites that are not big rig friendly. Sites are fairly level. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Well laid out park to create great space between neighbors. Quiet, concrete pads, easy access to shoreline from just about every site. Clean with trash pick up 3 times a week from each site's trash can provided on each site. Great beach. Gated and security patrolled regularly. Views of lake are great at every site in the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice campground with a policeman posted at the gate and patrolling the campground. Check in was easy. All sites are on the lake. We were in site #20 and the sunrise was over the lake and very pretty. The site had pick-nick table, fire ring, water, no sewer. Roads and sites are paved. There is a beach and boat ramps in the day use area. This campground is close to the city, and conveniences. We will visit again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A pretty nice place to camp. The staff was super friendly. Our site was directly on the water as are most others. I would return again if in the area. The price is right too. I dropped the rating one point because of no sewer and no internet access, but I knew that going in. Great cell phone so if you have a cell internet you will be in fine shape. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Still only $20 per night. Escort to site. Sites are tight and pads are narrow. Many lakefront sites, one has a dock. Campground is close to restaurants and shopping No cable but excellent digital TV reception. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Excellent Campground, nice size sites... Staff seemed to be bored since they nitpicked me for having my bike parked 50 feet out of the RV area... We use our tandem to ride distance and as transportation, the staff member told me we couldn't ride outside of RV area. Also no sewer connection, which is minor. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice quiet county park, We camped here two weekends back to back and will return. Rating is due to no sewer connections. Cell Phone and Air Card worked with good signal. Check-in must be by 7pm. Some sites are 30 amp and some 50 but they ask what you need. Many sites are pull-thru. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a Great County owned park. We stayed here in April and October 2006. Staff are friendly. Sites are well maintained. Beach is clean. A NEW playground was built in summer 2006 -- the kids love it! Bath rooms were recently renovated. When in North Georgia, this is our favorite CG. Note: Big rigs are OK; but a tight squeeze in most sites. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
16 of the total number of sites listed are tent sites. This park was clean and the staff very helpful. There is a beach area with a volleyball court. Also, there is a "multi-purpose" building for use by clubs or organizations (may be a fee for this, I think it depends on size of club and number of sites reserved). The building is large and has a kitchen area. The sites are shaded, large, paved parking pads with a nice picnic area outside your door. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
