Campground is in middle of golf course on high clearing. Very few trees. No water access. Only two trails in woods along golf fairways and lake 20 feet down from path drop off. Stayed only 2 nights then moved on. Lake outside of park is nice for boating. Few things to do here, suggest carter caves or Cave run areas.
We camped here with our dogs the week before Halloween. Great caves and sights, friendly people in area, campground had only 30 camping units this week. Old mini golf was fun/easy. Lake was not much, did not take canoe out at all. Out of state fishing license was $35.00 / did not go. Hiking trails are good and scenic. Deer are easy to spot and enjoy. Park well taken care of except lake area, unused and run down for several years. For boating go to Cave run. Sites are very close and most in open. A couple which back up to woods and pool road are best. Overall one of the best campgrounds we have used. As with most state parks money is tight to keep them updated and in top shape. Take extra water line and electric cord / hook ups are as much as 50 feet away.
We camped here on the lake front. Is a nice small interesting lake, great for our canoe. Planes and other sites in campground were nice, could stand some upkeep. Plenty to do here and in nearby areas, check out Jimmy Carters home town with train, nice trip. Georgia parks are better than some other nearby. Right off I-75 good stop over. Some sites are close by, others are in open, and a few are lakefront, find what suits you.
We read all reviews and checked all we could find on this park, sounded good. Paid for 8 days in advance site unseen. WE got here and immediately tried to find a better site, no luck. Said it was on lake, it's not even near, only if you look though some of the trees, can you see water. The only trail goes nowhere, cannot get to lake! Only way to get to the lake was at the commercial boat dock (very unfriendly). Our site is in the reserve area. The pad is right at the road in untrimmed weeds with no view of anything. The table was 40 feet away on big rock with a 20 foot drop-off at the edge into trees. Nothing to do here, would have been better in my driveway. We gave up our money spent after 2 days and moved out. Checked out Holly Cove a few miles away: much better.
Two campgrounds are available here, we stay near the marina. Has mostly shaded areas with some larger sites near water or within view. There are good hiking trails and bike paths. It's a short trip to town and shopping; 50 miles to Charleston for day trip. There are fishing areas nearby, walking or a short ride to the dock. This is a good park to stay at to check out the area and Charleston nearby. It's in the top 10 parks we have stayed at.
The park itself is very nice , great trails and falls, plenty of photo opts. The campground itself is poor. Sites too close; some are just open areas where several units are together. There is a horse stable within a short distance. The campground needs to be reworked and updated to be within the standard Kentucky wants.
