Besides agreeing with all of those who posted a 10 for this campground I would like to add that they give you support and help whenever needed. If our Wi-Fi didn't work properly it was fixed within a day. The same goes for the cable. They are very service orientated in this campground and are concerned about their guests' satisfaction. I stop here at least once a year for several months. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful campground at the base of Brasstown Bald. Very clean and well kept. Nice pool, mini golf, and playground for the kids. They also offer pedal boats and canoes for rent to use on their small lake. Very gracious staff. We would definitely like to camp here again. Our rate was with Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 10 / 10 ]
Excellent campground. Sites and roads are very clean. Very friendly staff and fast check-in. We're here with a motor home group. The pavilion is very large and clean. Lots to do in the area. They do a great job here in keeping this place up. One of the best places we've stayed. We will definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A spectacular park sitting in a beautiful location at the base of Georgia's tallest mountain, Brasstown Bald. Its a bit off the road near Hiawassee, but upon arrival one will find a very well developed RV park (more like an RV resort). Beautiful landscape, lakes and great amenities in a breathtaking mountain setting. We visited this trip in our truck camper as we were in the north Georgia region, and wanted to check this park out as a place to visit for a longer stay with our fifth wheel. We will definitely return as it met and exceeded our expectations. We only saw one shower/restroom facility located in the office complex and not the main shower/restroom building located elsewhere in the park. The office shower facility was not very attractive and we shied away from using it. There is a bit of a problem with pesky geese/duck droppings in the vicinity of the ponds so we had to watch our step. But the overall quality of the facility and its awesome location made it a pleasant place to be and a place we want to visit more frequently. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Our site overlooked the lake with Bald Mountain in the background. An awesome view. Large sites with picnic tables. Strong Wi-Fi. Clean laundry room. Office staff friendly and helpful. Paddle boats and kyake's available for the lake. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here so far. Ours has been a three-night stay in early October, over a weekend. Everyone has been so friendly. The staff at check-in were great and everyone here in the park waves and says “hello”. We reserved a lakeside pull through site. Very nice view of the lake and mountains. The fire rings by the lake are beautiful when everyone has them lit. It is in a good location to experience some of north Georgia’s best activities. We used the WiFi a lot during the stay. The signal was strong and we experienced no problems. There seemed to be a good mixture of sunny and shady spots throughout the park. Ours was not shaded but had the lakeside location. If anything, I would say that the sites are a bit crowded in a few areas. However, we had neighbors to both the left and right and the proximity did not bother us at all. The restrooms were clean but we did not use the shower facilities. In fact, there were many amenities which we did not use. From what we observed; however, all of the facilities were well maintained and clean. They do offer a number of family friendly amenities which means there are a good number of children about. One should expect the normal sounds and activities which come with a family park. While we do not have children ourselves, we did not find the noise inappropriate. Nothing out of the norm, just “happy” noises. Children riding bikes around the park, fishing in the lake, playing on the grounds, etc. The park prominently displays the rules and they seem to be followed for the most part. This park suited our style of camping well. It has been great to come back after a day of hiking and exploring to cookout beside the rig. We eat at the picnic table then take our chairs to the lakeside and enjoy a fire (and the fires of our neighbors). Because of its location near many areas of interest for us, I would safely say we will visit here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed on a creek side site with other friends near by. Easy access and good signs marking the campground location. Friendly staff and nice facilities. We used the pool, ball field, fishing pond and putt putt golf and the kids loved them all. This facility is close to Helen (tubing) and many other recreational opportunities. I would give it a perfect rating if the laundry room had normal hours or was arranged for campers to use it when convenient. It's only open when office is open (days) and closes an hour before the office does. Most of our large gathering went to town to find a laundry mat. We will return and recommend to others. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park was highly recommended to us, since we wanted to come to the Hiawassee area. The reception was very friendly. We found it mostly seasonal, permanently parked RVs around the perimeter of this large park. It is attractive to families and rallies. There are plenty of activities for all ages. The showers and trash containers are inconvenient for short time parking. The laundry was centrally located and very clean. The creeks running through the park lend ambiance, but Bald Mountain is not our favorite kind of campground. We wouldn't plan to come here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has quickly become our favorite getaway. We always choose a lakeside pull-through. The managers and owners are on site and very helpful. We had a small water issue this last trip and were able to borrow a wet vac to help mop up the water. The park is clean,quiet, and peaceful. It's close enough to some great sites in the North Georgia Mountains, but remote enough to be quiet. The mountain veiw is fantastic. There is a pool, but we didn't use it. We are planning on a week long trip in the fall. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here for the month of April,which reflexes the nightly rate. It is a beautiful RV park in the area off the main road. It is real quiet, even when a rally of 50 came in.The grounds are always kept up nice and the restrooms and laundry are always clean. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. We would recommend Bald Mt Camping Resort to everyone who would like to stay in the northern Georgia mountains area. The town of Hiawassee has a real nice grocery store, and all the local stores and restaurants are just great. We definitely would return for another visit. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
VERY large park that is open only from April 1--November 1. We were told that the WI-FI had been improved; it was very fast. Phone service worked great and cable was provided. Some sites were shaded and some had no shade, especially some of the pull-through sites for bigger RVs. Lots of amenities, especially for families with children: fishing pond, nice playground, miniature golf, swimming pool, basketball court, volleyball net, and grassy baseball field to name a few. We stayed close to Halloween and the park staff had a costume contest for the kids. On the flip-side, if you prefer a less active environment and/or if you have a dog that goes nuts when kids on bikes zip by during a walk, this may not be the place for you. Some children were supervised, some not. Our space was space 40, a back-in, and it was not very deep so we had to angle our truck sideways in front of our trailer. Sites were such that trailers are lined up fairly close together with no landscaping in between; sorta like a huge gravel parking lot. Sites were not paved but interior roads were. The park is surrounded by hills, which is pretty, and has a stream running through on one side. I think the views from the fish pond side were better than where we were parked. There is a street that runs through the park that gives access to private homes. Restrooms were clean, and so was the laundry room. The laundry room had several units of washers/dryers all in working order at the time we used them. It was a short drive into nearby communities. Friendly staff. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed at Bald Mountain Camping Resort four times in the last few years and thus far it is our favorite campground. The facilities are very clean, the grounds are kept clean, and the staff is very helpful. We have always been allowed to choose the exact site we want and the map posted on their website is fairly accurate. My only complaint is that the wifi is very week and sometimes non-existent. If you need wifi, this might not be the place for you or you might need a site very close to the office. We will be returning in Oct. 2012. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park, we enjoyed our stay very much. Signage to the camp ground was a little misleading, but the effort was worth it. Very friendly people and lots of points of interest near by. Our pet loved it there as well as he is very social. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We thoroughly enjoyed this campground! Playground, swimming pool, fishing, putt putt, paddle boats, game room...there was always something for the children to do. We camped in a pull-thru site around the lake which had no shade. The site was close enough to the lake, store, and putt putt that we could allow our kids a little freedom to do these things on their own since we could see them from our site. Only complaint is the ducks and geese around the lake, or what the ducks and geese left behind, you always had to be careful where you stepped. Not sure of the nightly rate. We paid a monthly rate of $430 plus electricity. Great campground!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great RV resort. We were here before the pool opened, but the playground and lake kept the kids busy. The only reason I didn't give this resort a 10 is the showers could have been a bit cleaner. Now in fairness, the park was not crowded at all and it was still very early in their season. We will be back for sure during the summer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a large campground. They can handle a lot of people in this campground because the sites are super close together. The best sites are next to the lake. We were in a site beyond the ball field up in the woods near a bath house. The trail to the bathhouse went through our campsite. So, while we were sitting at the camp fire people would walk right through. Other than the close quarters, it was a nice campground. The sites had sewer hookups, fire ring, and cable. We will visit again if we can get one of the better sites on the lake. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Had a great stay at Bald Mountain. We came in after hours and they had a packet of exactly where our campsite was and how to get to it. I was told when I made the reservation that it was shady which it was. I was on a waiting list. Campground called and was able to accommodate me. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were very very happy here. It was like we were in a private valley with the mountains surrounding us. Yet only about 7 miles from Hiawassee. Very friendly staff. We had a pull through, with a 34 ft motor home, a 20 ft trailer and there was still enough room to park behind the trailer which we did not have to unhook. We had our dogs with us and the dog run was very well maintained, a pleasant surprise. We were not fisherman but there were many people fishing in their private lake/pond. All in all it was a quiet peacefully park. We will stay here again next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park, beautiful location and friendly staff. Enjoyed our stay here very much. We will most probably be back. No charge for the pool - shuffleboard and mini-golf only required a deposit for equipment. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
For families this is probably a good place to be. For seniors that want peace and quite, this is the worst place to be. Too may kids everywhere, bike almost run you over, too much noise. We paid for multiple nights, but left after the first night. There is a road that runs through the middle of this campground with traffic going thru all the time. Just not a place we would ever revisit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an absolutely perfect resort. The amenties are outstanding, the entire place is maintained very nicely. We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend, and found nothing to complain about. The park was completly full and we were able to sleep without bother in our tent, all the sites are clean with gravel and close hook ups. Weather staying in a tent or camper, everyone was treated the same, restrooms were checked/cleaned twice daily. Plenty to do with children my kids loved it. We found no issue with the road (mentioned in some reviews) which goes through the park, not alot of traffic and everyone is very alert of the resort activities and people crossing the road. We camped here in a Tent.
We are new to camping and haven't been to a lot of campgrounds yet, but my husband said, "This is the prettiest campground we've been to." This campground is in a gorgeous setting! There are streams running all through the campground and a beautiful lake. Yes, there are some "full timers" as others have said, but their sites are well kept and the people are friendly. Lots of fun things to do - we enjoyed shuffle board, miniature golf, swimming, and a concert at the bandstand and the girls couldn't wait to get to the good "old fashioned" playground that had teeter-totters and a merry-go-round (you never see those anymore)! Many sites back up to a large stream. Ours backed up to a small one and it kept the girls busy. My only complaints would be that they need more lounge chairs at the pool and the sites are close together. As others have stated there is a road that comes through the middle of the campground - we did not let our daughters ride on it without us. Most people driving on it go slow and are cautious but there are a few who don't. My recommendation is to stay on the same side of the road as the office. Then you can access everything by bicycle without going on the main road with exception to the playground and then you will need to cross the road. This is what we did - we were in sight 172. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
When I placed my reservation, there were no pull-through's available. Upon arrival, the owner had me park my car trailer in an open area close to our site. We loved the little stream next to our site, which was shaded, clean and level. Staff very friendly and the grounds were very well maintained. Did not use bath facilities, so cannot comment on them. We spent a week here. This is one campground I would return to and would highly recommend to others. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First stay here, and it was pretty nice. Negatives were the WiFi that is intermittent, and the site we had, had a tree with several dead limbs. We had a pretty good storm the 2nd night and a 10' limb came down and put several holes in the awning and dented the tailgate of my truck. No true fault of the campground, more bad luck on my part. There is a lot of traffic through here with the county road and general traffic. As stated before there are a lot of permanent sites, and some look very dated and some are trashy looking. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We booked for 4 nights but only stayed 2.The park does offer internet but it was very slow. The cable tv was great and so was the pool, but the putt putt was only available if you can get the equipment from the office that closes kind of early.There is a main road running thru the campground so you need to watch the kids crossing.The site we had was 220 which was nice, on the creek, but there are alot of permenant travel trailers,one of which was right next to us so the view was kind of bad and the bugs were terrible.The sites on the lake looked nice but there were not many trees.We won't be back again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The Park has a great feel! It is neat and clean and well maintained. The owners are working onsite and/or nearby most of the time. They are friendly, professional and accommodating. Pride of ownership is evident. There is plenty of room for walking and biking. It is a great central location for access to incredible outdoor recreation in the surrounding mountains. There are lots of family-friendly activities right on the property i.e., pool, mini golf, playground, basketball, paddle boats etc. It seems a great place for a perfect camping experience! We stayed for a month and were treated to azaleas, rhododendrons and tulips trees in bloom! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Bald Mountain was a great campground with awsome things to do with our kids. The sites were all fairly level and clean. Some smaller than others but very comfortable. We had guests join us for one night and they were very accepting of them for $5.00 each per night so a total of an extra $10.00 for the one night. The cable was wonderful for the kids and yes it rained so that kept them busy. The kids also played in the creek at the back of the site and had a wonderful time. We will be back time and time again I am sure. One of the best sites I have been to in the past 5 years. Fishing in the ponds is free for campers. The putt putt is free and also great for all ages. Sites are pea gravel. Many permanent residents but very nice and polite. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a beautiful park. One of my favorite. The sites are nice and the ones on the stream are wonderful. Activities are planned during the summer week ends and the fall. I have stayed here many times and will continue to do so. You can not go wrong at this park. Suitable for larger rigs as well as tent campers. Very family friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park was big rig friendly with several sections to choose from. A couple of the sections were like gravel parking lots, with no room between sites. The main road intersected campground and the road was busy on the Sat we were there. We forgot to present our Good Sam card upon arrival and went back the next day and were told we should have presented it upon check in. The site we were in was very good with a view of the small lake, but was not clean. Check in and check out are the same time on literature, so be aware if checking in at the time since the previous camper might still be there. Overall, this was an OK park for us, but there are nicer in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice campground, good people, camped by creek which was real nice, did not like all the road traffic and barking dogs from permanent residents, had to leave 4 days early because of the birth of a grandchild No Refunds are given so I suggest that if you think you might have an emergency that you pay daily. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We loved this park, though it is 3-4 miles off the main road and up a mountainside. Most of the campground is level, as are the sites. Very family/pet friendly. We were by the stream, which was running and lovely to listen to. Wi-Fi did not reach to our RV, but available in the clubhouse. Nicely maintained, though the only dumpsters were not conveniently located. However, a nice experience and we would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground was nice, however I was disappointed to see a local street going through the middle of the campground. This, in my opinion made it dangerous for those walking and riding bikes. There was a large volume of traffic during the early evening hours. There was only 1 trash bin which was very inconvenient for the size of the park. The landscaping could have been a little better, such as simply cutting the grass around the camping sites. I will not return due to the street and lack of any type of security. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Overall, its a pretty good campground. We are spoiled to staying at Georgia State Parks, so a private campground was a bit of a change for us. The sites were only about 6 feet from each other, and there are numerous permanent residents in the campground. They have even put metal covers over them, built decks and landscaped around them. It seemed a bit like a trailer park. However, the scenery is beautiful! It is very kid friendly, having a pool, a lake to fish in, and a putt putt course. There is also a busy road running through the middle of the campground...which is hazardous to kids and adults. Happy Camping! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The new owners have done a great job redoing the campground. The sites are level and big. We love to come to this park every year. We stayed the month of September 2006 and are planning to go back September 2007. We also make a quick trip in April for a few days. It's a well deserved 10! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I got towed into this park after dark as I had a brake problem on my rv. The owner came out to greet meet me and told me he knew an rv repair man who showed up at nine the next morning. The campground is clean, all litter picked up on a daily basis, quiet and on a stocked lake with a river running through it. The office staff greets you with a smile and there is a small store with necessities and a book and video exchange in the large game room. You can rent a paddle boat or kayak for the lake or play mini golf. There is a volleyball net, and a swimming pool, although it's not yet opened. The wifi signal is great as is the cable signal. You can camp on a running stream or on the lake its your choice. The only thing this park is missing are scheduled activities but they may be coming soon under the new owners. You must have your pets on a leash here but there are several dogs from the local neighborhood running loose in the park but they don't seem to cause a problem. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is great, very relaxing and quiet, yet you can find alot to do. Holidays are fun, with dancing and a band at the bandstand. If I need wireless intenet, its there. If I want to fish, it's there. If my husband want to watch cable, it's there. If I need the help of the staff or manager, they are all there for us. The bathhouses are the cleanest I've ever seen. It is a perfect area for a great time. We all love it here, and will come back every summer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 3 / 10 ]
Lots of permanent residents, more like a trailer park, not a resort. Needs work. Owners are not pleasant and please don't bother them when it is close to 6 pm, lock-down time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at this campground for several years every May for a motorcycle rally. The new owners are working miracles at this park. There are a lot of seasonal residents, but they are not intermingled with the regular campers. The new owners have strict requirements for the seasonal residents to keep neat and presentable sites. There are many big rig sites available. The bath houses are older, but kept clean and stocked. The owners have plans for total bath renovations. The park is a wonderful relaxing place. This is an excellent park for a staging area to enjoy Helen, Georgia, waterfalls, many state parks and the mountains in general. They are pet friendly and motorcycle friendly. The paved roads in the park are especially nice for keeping the dust down! Wonderful play areas for children. In the summer, they have many planned activities for the campers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
They call it an RV resort but it's more like a trailer park. Lots of permanent residents in run down units with metal canopies over them. Some shaded sites but too many in full sun. Sites are also close together and in straight rows without much regard for asthetics. The new owners were very nice however and said they have plans to improve the park. I found the presence of so many permanent sites depressing and not in keeping with a campsite like experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is an older park and needs some repairs. There are two newer bath houses and the new owner is making repairs.The coin laundry is not sufficient for the number of campers. If the new owner continues the improvements it would be an 8 or 9 rating. We camped here in a camper.
Overall, this is a pretty park; however, they will nickel and dime you to death. The additional people/children charge is not unheard of but you have to pay $5 per night per dog (my husband asked me if that meant they were going to clean up after our dog), plus $5/day for a "burn permit." You cannot bring firewood with you, you must purchase it from them. You pay another $10 per stay for a conservation fee. They advertise WiFi; however, it only worked about 30% of the time at our site. We had no cell phone service with AT&T and neither did our friends using Sprint. The sites are very close together and the statement about leaving things natural is not a lie. Our site had a number of trees so close to the pad that we had make a choice as to whether we wanted our awning to open or access to our outdoor kitchen (we could not open both). The campground has a few waterfalls you can hike to. We chose to hike to the 200' waterfall. Warning - Do not attempt this after it has rained. The trail is dirt which as you know turns to mud after a rain. The slope is pretty steep as you get into it and very slippery when muddy. We were told there was a "swimming hole" at the falls and you spend all this time hiking up to the falls only to have to climb down an embankment if you want to visit the "swimming hole." We saw a few snakes so we decided against a dip. I found the place a little pricey for the amenities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
After the previous park we inhabited in the area, we were overjoyed to be here. This is a lovely and spacious park, run by a non-profit, with a huge organic farm. The Appalachian Trail is in close proximity, and nearly every site has a stream in the back, as well as decks and picnic tables for your eating pleasure. They are pet and family friendly although when we were there it was August and it was on the quiet side. There is a huge lodge where you can get breakfast if you wish, but only at certain times. Yes, they charge for firewood and a permit, but it is a place where they try to keep things as pristine as possible. We had great walks to a 200 foot waterfall and Loved this place. It was serene and relaxing and just wonderful. We look very forward to returning one day soon. We camped here in a Motorhome.
In theory, this should've been a very pleasant experience. I believe if we had visited in the off-season we would've had a great time. However, we went with friends on Memorial Day weekend and were very disappointed. The campsites are ridiculously close together and over crowded. We witnessed many sites with three tents pitched in very close proximity. The bath house was a mess almost the entire time we were ,and it was woefully inadequate for the volume of campers using it. It was fairly obvious on our third day here that people were not happy with the situation and were packing up to leave early. I determined this by the number of folks that were leaving late in the day, rather than experiencing another night of cramped, noisy, camping with sanitary facilities that may have been failing at any moment. I really wanted to like this adventure, but I just can't get past the generally poor execution of the camping facilities. Half as many sites with at least two more bath houses would be the minimum needed to make this camp site workable. I know my review is scathing, but it's the truth, and I didn't even include the issues with the dumpster overflowing. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is not a destination for peace and relaxation. It caters to rowdy, beer drinking adults and their unruly kids … in some cases brought in by busloads … much to the dismay of those paying well over $30 a night plus $5 per pet for hookups on substandard lots. There is no cable TV; you can’t even get antenna channels due to the remoteness of this facility. For six nights we were shoehorned into a tiny space that disallowed motor home slides to be fully opened. The creek is littered with dead branches and trash. Adults and kids use it for bathing and washing dishes. People insisted on using fire pits between spaces that spewed ashes and hot cinders on neighboring rigs and cars. Limited WiFi is available in the office. They boast waterfalls on the property, but getting to anything that remotely resembles a waterfall is nearly impossible. You must walk along very steep, muddy and dangerous foot paths. This campground is a disaster and should be avoided unless your idea of camping is a culture equal to a noisy, low class trailer park. There are other area facilities that offer much more. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park, clean. The only down sides are the lots are too close to each other and it is very hard to get a large travel trailer in most sites although you can do it. The lodge is nice and offer food service which is good if you don't want to cook. They charge you $5.00 a night for pets which I think is a little steep and there are cats and dogs roaming around all sites unleashed. All in all I would probably stay there again but it will be down on my list of places in that area just for the fact of tight spots. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pros: Beautiful surroundings, concrete pad and deck. Cons: Picnic table needed to be rebuilt; site was tight to fit in - the vehicles and campers across the street are close and it makes it hard to maneuver (we were in site 19 and have a 30' TT); showers were cold and dirty; the owner could stand to improve her people skills. Overall this was not a good fit for our family and we will not return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a fantastic place to camp. We spent one week there. The property is huge and beautiful. Streams run throughout with most of the campsites along one of the streams. There are a ton of activities for young kids. My 14 and 18 year old sons even had a good time hiking and exploring. The weather was great, and sleeping at night with the windows open and the sound of the stream was perfect. There is a lodge where you can relax and play a game of chess. A small selection of camping and food items you might need are also available there for purchase. There is wireless internet available at no charge, and they even had a phone where you can make free long distance calls to anywhere in the US as long as you kept your call to 10 minutes. There is no TV reception unless you have satellite, so bring DVDs for the kids if that's what you want to do. They charge you $5 per night if you have a pet which I thought wasn't great, but this is a non-profit camping facility so they have to raise money somehow. If I were camping in a tent or pop-up where I would have to use the bath house, toilet and shower availability would be somewhat limited if the place really filled up...but they were clean. There is a lot to do in the local area. This site is only three miles from the highest point in Georgia, and the Appalachian Trail runs right by the camp. The Alpine tourist town of Helen, GA, is just 14 miles south. The German food is great there and the miniature golf place on the hill was fun and inexpensive. We will be making reservations to return there next year at the same time. I highly recommend this place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground it great! We camped on site H and were right on the stream so you can hear the water rushing by. The staff was very friendly and helpful.There is a nice playground for the kids and the farm tour at 4:30 when they can milk a cow and collect eggs and our tour guide Casey was wonderful he took us thru the garden and let us sample the organic vegetables. There are lots of hiking trails. There is a 200 ft waterfall and a 400 ft waterfall. It was a steep climb up to the 200 ft which had a swimming hole at the bottom but I was afraid of the height so I did not try it out.The only thing that does not give this resort a 10 is that there is no swimming pool. If you can't make the steep climb up to the swimming hole you need to wade in the streams to cool off which is still alright. I will definitely return here but in the fall when swimming is not a priority. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Besides the swirvy drive up and down two separate mountains to get to this campsite, we really enjoyed ourselves at this campground. The positives first: This campground retreat has a lot of activities, especially for kids. My kids were occupied all day long every day were spent here. They had in-gound trampolines, a decent kids park, a petting farm with cows, chickens, goats and horses. The goats just had babies a week prior so the kids really had fun holding them. There were a ton of different trails and hikes to beautiful waterfalls and streams on the property. There was an organic garden, however because we were there during a winter month, the garden was not grown in yet. The kids got to milk a cow that apparently they use for breakfast at the lodge. When we checked in we didn't get the site that we originally picked out during our online reservation due to electrical problems, but we got a site right in front of the fishing lake where the kids had a ton of fun catching trout. The trout were very easy to catch and it was catch-n-keep, so whatever we caught made for a nice lunch. This was Valentines weekend and there were a ton of kids that were either there for a retreat or camping with families. That is always a positive for us, because our kids enjoy meeting other camping kids. The only real negatives is that they sort of find a reason to charge you for everything. The $30 or so per night was for a full hook-up on a paved site, across from a stream and lake, however there was a charge for $5 per kid, per night above the 2 kid limit. We had 2 extra guests with us, so it was an extra $10 per night. We also have to pay $5 per dog, per night. And it was $5 per fish that you caught. If the daily spending isn't a bother, than it's definitely worth it. They use the money to continue to maintain the property and keep this place in top condition. We would definitely come back here again. My son is already planning his birthday here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here Thanksgiving 2006. It is a not-for-profit campground. Not sure what that means... looks like a couple of hippies that run it and they get "volunteers" to help with the small menagerie of animals and the restaurant. We would probably stay her again because it is remote and up on the mountain. We day tripped to Clayton and Highlands while staying there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Good campground and the staff is friendly. Loop A is the best for separation of campsites, however no fires are allowed in this loop. Restrooms are clean and maintained. Did not understand the boat ramp, they need a floating platform to tie up to when launching. Excellent walking around the roads, keep I'm mind these roads have hills. Hiawassee is a fun place to visit and you will not find a lot of brand restaurants, mostly local flavor. We stayed four days and will mark this campground for a return visit. The campground is run by the county and is better maintained than most Georgia State Parks. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
I was very pleased with our return visit to the Georgia Mountain Fair Campgrounds. We had previously stayed in Area 1 on the south side of highway 76, however this time we stayed in area 2 which was more accommodating to travel trailers. We stayed on a nice campsite on the hillside overlooking the lake. Most campsites have a great view or limited view of the lake. We were in the A section of area 2, which is hilly, but more space between campsites. Sections B,C,D,E and F are more level, but are closer together. The WiFi and cable both were great! Even with the Georgia Mountain Fair going on the campground still seemed calm and safe. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice campground with sites on the lake and higher up on a small mountain over looking the lake. The sites on the mountain are wooded and farther apart. The sites on the lake are closer, but not too close. We had a good time, but this campground can become noisy if some campers are there for concerts and drinking/partying. The location is good and you can get to grocery stores and restaurants easily. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Return visit for the BMW Motorcycle Georgia Mountain Rally the first weekend in May. We reserved a lake front site that has the mountains in the background - beautiful! Sites on the lake are smaller and narrow. Good variety of sites to meet all needs. Close to town for restaurants and shopping. Full hookups including cable TV and strong wi-fi signal. Clean, well run, and in a great location for motorcycling, hiking, or exploring. Within an hour of Helen, GA, and Highlands, NC, and much to do to keep you busy. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Love this park! Great large wooded view sites. Neat, clean and well kept. Hilly and good for walking, biking. Nice pavilion for gatherings. Lake is beautiful and many sites have views. Then go down the Mtn. and visit Helen. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great campground, close to the town of Hiawassee, the fairgrounds, lake, and some very nice sites. This was our first time to camp at this campground and were not familiar with the sites. We would not recommend site A-24 unless you were camping with another family or friend being in A-22. Sites faced each other and we had no privacy and the campers in the other site had dogs who barked a good bit. We saw no other sites in the campground that are placed facing each other as these two are, but we would not go back to that site. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped here for the Georgia Mountain Motorcycle Rally in early May. We stayed in the full service area located near the fairgrounds. The park is in a wonderful location near the center of town and surrounded by many places to visit. This campground has excellent facilities. The restrooms were well maintained even through there was over 700 motorcyclists here for the rally. I walked the campground and there is a wide variety of sites from well shaded to sunny. There are lake front and lake view sites. There is a nice playground for children. We will return with our toy hauler for a week stay next year. We camped here in a Tent.
This campground is located close to everything in the area. We found it to be easy in and out with no really tight turns. We enjoyed our space (E6) as it had lots of tall trees and was shaded throughout the day. The asphalt pad was approximately 80 feet long and level with no slope to either side or front to back. While our site was not conducive to satellite reception due to the trees, other sites we noticed were available with few or no trees, some of them near the water. Our site had very clear cable TV hookup with 60 (+/-)channels. The WI-FI signal was strong although some camped at the water's edge under the hill could not pick it up. The two shower locations were very clean as were the restrooms. The campground was filled to capacity, yet was very quiet after 10pm. We would stay there again and have secured reservations two weeks away for a concert in their on-site music hall. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Wow, there are staggering lake views from waterfront sites and even from inside sites as campground is hilly with open lake views. Sites are spacious, asphalt paved, and arranged for privacy. The park is divided into area north, and south of the highway. If you require full service, be sure to specify campsite on same side (north) as the Fairgrounds. The south side very suitable for tent, pop-up camping, but pretty tight for trailers and motor homes. There are lots of 'events' at the Fairgrounds which causes sites to be booked well in advance during these periods. I Suggest that you call to be sure sites are available. I stayed one week while attending conference in the area and would go back many times. I had a very good experience. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Had a bad experience with this park that cost me time and money. Reserved a site for a 31’ TT, confirmed it by telephone two week before arriving, and was bumped to a different site that was only 35’ long and no sewer. It was a glorified tent site on the side of a hill. Electric and water hookups were at least 50’ part from each other with the water outlet in the grass between sites. Park was sold out and they could not give me another site. I wasted eight hours of driving, $78 in diesel, and 250 miles of wear and tear (half on curvy mountain roads). I was given a full refund but there was no apology or explanation from the staff as to why this happened. We were supposed to be camping with 10 other families at the park. Waste. Of. Time. Lesson I learned? Always get a paper confirmation and record who you spoke with originally! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground is located in the beautiful Hiawassee Valley. Even though is has the lake going for it, I could not recommend this campground. We stayed in the campground area across the street from the fairgrounds, and were very disappointed in everything. The sites were very unlevel and close together. There were many permanent residents that made us feel like we were in a trailer park. It was pretty rowdy at times and everyone had big dogs. The lake patrol were bullies to fishers most of the time. We may have just had a bad experience there, but will not be returning. Happy Camping! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a great park with a couple of exceptions. All of the good sites on the water did not have 50 amp service, only the interior sites had 50 amp. My site was fine with the hookups, but it seemed as though most of the hookups were at the front of long sites, or at the very back. Bring your extension hose and cord. Did not try the wi-fi. Our site was not clean when we arrived, the camper before us was not very courteous. The campground is big rig friendly, but some of the big rig sites are not as friendly. Make sure you ask when making reservations. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Don't know why they advertise this place as being a wifi park. When I visited, the wifi signal only worked at about 3 campsites and the speed was extremely slow and certainly not broadband. Staff was also rude and seemed to care less if I was happy or not. Pretty park but staff spoils the experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful park in a great location on the shores of Lake Chatuge. Most of the water front camp sites seem to be reserved by people for the entire summer, but the other sites are also very nice, though the views aren't as spectacular. We were not able to get a satellite signal, even though we weren't in the trees. The staff are not rude, but they are not friendly, which is unusual in this small Southern town. Many campers bring jet skis or small boats, and there is a good boat ramp at the campground. Overall, the campground is clean and attractive, and we plan to come back at least every two years. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A truly wonderful park. It is directly on the shores of Lake Chatuge. The sites are all over the place and you can have quite a lot of privacy. There is a boat ramp available. There is also a large playground. It is in the center of town, but feels as if you are far far away from everything. I urge everyone who likes Lakes to try it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really liked this campground. Seems to be well run. Nice people who are respectful of their neighbors. Seems to have quite a few 5th wheel trailers set in place as though they are there permanently. The grounds and gravel roads are very well maintained. The sites have good 50 amp service, great water pressure, sewer. Most all sites seemed level and are spaced well enough to give privacy. Weekly rate is buy 6 nights, get another night free. We would definitely stay here again as it is close to all the interesting and fun things to do in north Georgia including NC. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Had a wonderful stay at this CG. Owners andCG were very, very nice. Lots of motor coaches and 5th wheels, and a small community of full timers. We had a river front site that had quite a bit of food items left behind, on the site, in the fire pit and on the shore of the river. Let them know so they didn't think it was us and they said they would get it cleaned up, but we had done most of it before they got there. Bathrooms, pool and laundry were very nice, modern and clean. Wi-Fi worked perfectly we were on site C12. Only thing that I did not like was they originally told us there was a service truck that came by everyday to dump tanks as we didn't have a sewer site, but when we checked in they told us it was M-W-F, which was fine as we checked in Sunday. Monday morning, came and they came to service the tanks, but said they were only doing grey and didn't do black until Fridays (we were leaving Thurs). Our tanks are rather small so it caused us a little managing of the water but we made it work. All in all, it was a great place and we will go back again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our group of ten units spent a great week here. Great campground, very well kept. Gravel roads drain well in the rain. Covered areas for group meetings. Good location for seeing the surrounding area/attractions. 2 (HE) washers and dryers, could use more machines. Only negative is there is no sign on the main road. Make sure you follow the directions on the web site. Looking forward to returning to this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice campground. Lots of seasonal units with no owners present for our stay. Sites are large and level. Great hookups with plenty of cable TV stations. Looks like satellite dishes would work in most sites. Sites and roads are fine gravel. Road leading to entrance had some low branches which hit the top of our unit, but once in the campground roads were wide and it was easy to handle our 40 ft coach with a trailer. Most sites are back in, but they did have 3 pull through spots that were VERY long, at least 100 feet in length. We didn't use the bathroom or shower facilities although I did walk in and it appeared to be clean. Trash can only be deposited in a dumpster at the office, which is a long walk from some camp sites. Also, the dumpster was overflowing with garbage when we were here. Verizon air card worked with somewhat weak signal strength. Verizon cell service was ok. No AT&T cell or data signal. Park had nice landscaping and was well kept. I had limited interaction with the staff, but the lady that checked us in was nice. Arriving after dark is no problem, campground is well lit and it was easy to find our spot. Some kind of flying bugs which were everywhere made sitting outside in the evening miserable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first camping trip, and it was great. The only reason I didn't rate it as a "10" was the wi-fi. It is advertised that there are shortages, and they weren't kidding. I'd say it works 30% of the time and available only in the A section, and some C sections. The owners are VERY nice. This is a great family campground. My 5 year old loved the pool. Lot's of seasonals that were not present during the week. The childs play area needs some attention as the play set is starting to fall apart. Roads are gravel and kept nice. The sites are very level with all connections within 10 feet. The speed limit is 5 mph and strictly enforced. This makes you feel very safe with children and keeps the dust down. The campground is only 5 years old, and shade is somewhat limited. Within a few years it will be perfect. The sites on the river are very level with great access to the river if you want to fish. The sites are HUGE compared to some other campgrounds in the area we looked at. We already have planned additional trips here this year. HIGHLY recommend!! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park was very large with many sites. The sites were level. The roads were level too, but were gravel. They did have a pool on the hill, which is away from most sites but it was not a terrible walk to get there. It is very secluded. Our site was on the river, which was very deep and slow moving with steep banks. It appeared good for fishing, but not for kids to play in. We would have prefered a site away from the river due to this. The staff was very friendly and had many activities planned for the kids. The only playground is located at the back of the campground. We enjoyed our stay here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We spent several weeks at this campground. Found it to be very clean and quiet. Owners and staff very friendly and helpful. Even though they claim to have a laundy room, they don't yet. Pool, of course, wasn't open yet. Cable excellent, didn't use WiFi. Need sign on main road so you know where to turn and when you go down the road it forks and you need to know which way to go. Will definitely recommend this campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
OK, I am giving this campsite a 10 right off the bat because they have one of the most fantastic Thanksgiving dinners anywhere. The owners supply the turkeys, hams, and pork and all the campers bring a covered dish or desert. This was our first time and there were almost 150 people at the dinner with enough food to feed twice that many. The owners are fantastic and really put in a lot of work to make this Thanksgiving dinner a real treat for all of us. Having said that, this campground is pretty good even without a Thanksgiving dinner. My only caveats are the bathrooms and the Wi-Fi. The bathrooms and showers are clean but they have something to be desired. They could use some improvement. The Wi-Fi is free and the owners will tell you that they are not responsible for it when it acts up. In our case we got good reception but it constantly cut out. Other then that you can read the other people's reviews and see that this is a great campground. We would go there again and I would encourage anyone to make advance reservations fro next Thanksgiving. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground was absolutely beautiful! The grounds are very clean and manicured. The pads and roads are gravel, but they are packed down tight. We had a campsite right on the river. Just behind the camper was a swiftly moving picturesque river, and a magnificent mountain view from the front of the camper! Most of the sites have full hookups, but a few do not have sewer. However, that was remedied by the campground management coming to the non-sewer sites with a honey wagon on Monday and Wednesday and pumping both your black and grey water tanks. The campground and attendants were very nice and hospitable. The grounds were absolutely meticulous. Cable worked great. Many channels available and the picture was perfect. Cell phone signal (I have AT&T wireless) was great. There is free wi-fi available. Our campsite was a little too far from the store/office so the wi-fi signal was unstable from our camper. I walked to a picnic table a few campsites closer to the office and had no trouble with it. In addition to the beauty around you, it is a short drive into Hiawassee, Brasstown Bald, Helen, Lake Chatuge, and High Shoals Falls. There is lots to do in and around the campground. Fishing was not very good while we were there because of the low water levels due to the drought. We will definitely be going back to this campground! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We love this park. These folks aim to please, and it's obvious. Great facilities, roomy sites, beautiful river views. Can't beat the north Georgia mountains. We go whenever we can. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Don't even think about staying anywhere else if you are in this area. This place was spotless! This campground is only three years old and everything is kept immaculate. The owners are friendly and are always driving around the park tending to the grounds. They help if you need it and otherwise they let you be. This is right on the Hiawassee River, so my daughter spent all day tubing down the stretch of river behind the campground. Make sure you bring a float if you are coming during the warm weather. She spent the late afternoon fishing at the upper point of the campground, which was also beautiful. The store here is not as stocked as others I have been to, but the do have hand-dipped Mayfield ice cream cones, so that makes up for anything they lack! There are grocery stores very close by, so it really isn't an issue. The sites are gravel - extremely clean and level, with soft grass in between them. They have planted trees, which will eventually shade the sites, but they are still new. The only thing they do not have here is a laundry room area. I would have given this place a higher score if I could have. It was great. We made reservations for Thanksgiving while we were there, since they have a big dinner here with Turkey, Ham and Pulled Pork. You bring the sides. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice campground, could easily be a 8 or 9 except for one thing. We have two small dogs and we were constantly pulling ticks off of them. Even for just a short walk. Thursday night we couldn't sleep because of the ticks in bed with us. It made our stay almost unbearable. Probably not the fault of the campground, but we won't be going back there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lovely campground. Clean, well kept. Have stayed more that once. The staff goes far and above what is expected. Hopefully the grass cutting incident mentioned in another email was an isolated case. The mountains and the stream are beautiful and located near the city of Hiawassee. Will surely camp there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped in a motorhome during July 2006. Upon arrival someone was in the campsite reserved for us, and the office had no idea why they were still in the site (past checkout time) and when they would be moving. Since other sites were available, we went to another site with no problem. On our third day there the ground crew began weed-eating around our campsite. We saw our patio rug being repeatedly hit and asked him to please be more careful around our coach. He continued and came very close to all of our hook-ups. We had grass all over our coach, patio rug and chairs. It took an hour to clean everything up as the grass was wet from previous day's rain. We called the office and the owner came down to our site. Her son (also an owner) was on the mower, and he joined her discussing the issue. We were pleasant but also stated that this should not be happening while we were parked and that they should not have been that close to our hookups and rug (grass was cut directly under our sewer hose, electric, and water hose). The son had an attitude that was rude, inappropriate, and utterly consumer-unfriendly. He did not care that they may have been causing a problem but stated only that he has to mow when he has to mow regardless of anything else. We will never stay at this campground again. They have only been open one year and with the attitude displayed, it appears they have not learned to take care of their customers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly staff. Several sites located next to river. Close to nearby town of Hiawassee for shopping, dining, golf, etc. Not all sites are shaded as this is a new park. Plan to go there again soon. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a new campground with a terrific, incredibly friendly staff and nice facilities. The utilities were great: 50 amp service, plenty of water pressure, and great cable TV reception. They are planning a pool for summer 2006. The sites are nice sized and the river offers access to Lake Chatuge. There is also a playground for the little ones and a couple of covered picnic pavilions. We highly recommend this campground and plan to visit many times a year now that we have discovered it! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
