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

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.

Average destination campground. They had most of the seasonals separated in a different section of the campground. Sites were of average width in the pull through section where we stayed. Be careful of the sites when it rains because the grassy area between the sites is surrounded by landscape timbers which causes the areas to become small ponds for a couple of days. Campground was close to the sights in Chattanooga, about 15 minutes from Downtown and the Lookout Mountain area.

The site that I stayed in was a large pull through that had 50 amp service. I think they only have 12 or 13 in the whole park so make sure you have your reservations. They had a new attendant when I made my reservation that actually assigned 2 of us to the same spot. Luckily we noticed it and had it changed. It is advertised as big rig friendly, but the roads were tight with my 38foot and their were a lot of low lying tree limbs. The site were level in the middle with small gravel. Picnic tables and fire rings were provided. Make sure you use your water pressure regulator. With the regulator, I had the best water pressure I have ever had. Overall this was a nice campground. Strange that it is on Lake Wiley but does not have water access. No beach or boat ramp.

This is an average campground that is close to Opryland, Grand Ole Opry, and Opry Mills Shopping Center. The restrooms were outdated but fairly clean as was the amenities for the campground such as power and water. The sites are gravel with a small concrete patio and a concrete table and benches. It had rained a lot so there was a fair amount of standing water. There was a shuttle that took you to the attractions and the people at the front desk were courteous and helpful. It was near a major road, but we did not hear any noise from the road. There is a Camping World and another camper dealer next to the property. They separated the long term residents from the shorter stay campers. It seemed to be the best and most affordable of the 3 campgrounds in the area. They take Good Sam.

One of the nicest parks we have stayed in. Plenty of room between the sites and easy to get into the back in sites with a big rig. We stayed in the 100 loop and it was fairly quiet. Nice bike rides to the beach and around the campground. The only negative is that there is no playground ( who needs it with a beach), and during our stay our dog was covered in ticks. Overall the campground is clean and well maintaied and the bathrooms and common areas were immaculate.

Easy park to find, and big rig friendly. Some sites were designed for motorhomes to pull into, so make sure you check when you get there, you might find out your hookups were on the wrong side. Minimal playground that needed some updating. Very well maintained with an open air bar, and live music on Fri and Sat nights throughout most of the year.

Sites are paved and fairly level. On the more expensive side, there was a fair amount of room between campers and the sites were long enough so you did not have to unhook. They had 2 sewer outlets which I wish more parks would go to. Had access to casino and hotel amenities, but that was about all there was to do. All casino restaurants were closed the last week of July and expected to reopen the first week of August when the new casino opens. Pool was nice but small. The park attendants and casino security were helpful with directions to and from park. Well stocked store. We would return.

We stayed in the new section of this park which had 100 foot sites and 2 sewer hookups. We were the first to stay in our particular sites, so the gravel was not packed down and their was loose dirt all around. We picked the sites, so no complaint here. Extremely nice and helpful owners. Bathrooms and laundry were spotless. A couple of local restaurants with good food within walking distance. This was a very pet friendly park, but not particularly kid friendly. Close to the interstate with easy in and out driveways. Very big rig friendly. I would highly recommend this park if you have to spend the night in western Iowa.

The site we were in was very spacious. Getting in and out of the park was fairly easy except they had me turn around in a washed out gravel area. Park had plenty of amenities for all ages. Hook ups were at the back of our site with the sewer about 10 feet behind the rig. We were in the Base Camp which was primarily Big Rigs. This area did not have a restroom facility or showers. Very good location to Crazy Horse and Mount Rushmore memorials. They had a big horse field in the middle of the campground that they allowed our dogs to run in as long as there were no horses around. Decent playground for the kids. Pancake breakfast served daily that was very affordable.

This was a well kept park with nice amenities such as a swimming pool, kids spray park, and hot tub. The park was fairly easy to get in and out of. The sites were typical KOA. They left the sprinklers running all day, sometimes without moving them so the sites became puddled and muddy. They allowed a tent camper to have a pit bull that the owner could hardly control. After several complaints about the dog to ownership, we noticed the dog and dog owners were gone the next day. Water supply shut off 2 days in a row without notification from office. Office staff seemed nice and recommended a great restaurant in Gallatin Gateway.

Nice park close to the west entrance of Glacier National Park. Sites were of adequate size and easy to get in and out of. Laundry facilities were nice and affordable. Bath rooms were clean. Staff very friendly and helpful with restaurants, directions, and activities. Staff lived on premises. Dry and dusty while we were there due to drought and unseasonable temperatures. Playground needs some work to be kid friendly. Very pet friendly park. Wildlife museum next door. Game table, TV, and computer in lounge next to laundry. We will return the next time we visit Glacier.

One of the best parks we have ever stayed in. Sites were of good width for a park this size. Sites were easy to get in and out of with a big rig. Bathrooms and Laundry were immaculate. Had a decent playground for kids and a well stocked store. We enjoyed the Mountain Bike trails that were right next to the park. Staff was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and directions to attractions outside of the RV park. The park was 4 blocks from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. The only complaint was that they watered the grass nightly, but considering the drought they are in, green grass was nice to see.

Nice place for a 1 or 2 night stay. Not kid friendly. Office staff was nice and helpful with directions to restaurants and to the park. The only complaint we had was the distance from the interstate for our short stay. Sites were level and easy to get into. Not much to do in Independence.

Good place to spend the night. Not much else. Right next to an auto auction that was busy during our stay. Would recommend this park for overnight only. Office staff extremely nice.

This is a great state park with big rig access. The reason for the lower rating is the fact that the sites need gravel (ours was mostly dirt) and some maintenance, weeds, rusty and broken grills, etc. The roads are tight in all areas. If you have a big rig, stay in area 5, as it is the only area with multiple 50 amp sites. The camp hosts were pleasant and the check in is simple. As with all GA state parks, there is no sewer or cable hook ups. The dump station is adequate at best. This park needs some TLC due to cutbacks in budget. There is no WiFi and the bathrooms are outdated but clean. Callaway Gardens is close by, but there really isn't anything in Pine Mountain. There is a spring-fed pool that is quite popular in the summer. We frequent this park and will go back.

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.

Excellent campground in the North Georgia Mountains with views of the mountains all around. If you have a big rig, try to stay in the meadows otherwise, the sites are not large and can be difficult for 35 ft and over. The horseback trail rides are scenic and peaceful as is the tours of the areas. Other than camping, hiking,horseback riding, and fishing the lake there is not a lot to do other than relax. The campground in near Brasstown Bald which is the highest peak in Georgia and very scenic on a clear day. Did not check out the wi-fi, but they have it in some places in the campground. Brand new bathhouse is clean and modern. The water pressure is adequate at best.

Campground sites can be tight in certain areas if you have a big rig.The 50 amp sites are easier to get into, not as tight. The campground management does a good job assigning sites based on rig size. Cable TV and free wi-fi reception were good at my site. Bathrooms could use some modernizing, but were cleaned daily. Great bike riding on the entire island. Some of the sites were close together, but not a problem for us. Workampers lead you to your site even when the office is closed. Overall, a great experience for us. They have weekly get together for both the seasonal and weekend guests including Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

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.

The only reason I rated it a 9 is the check in process. It took me longer that signing my mortgage. Also, the site we were in was excellent, just a little difficult to get into. As usual, customer service was impressive. This was our 4th trip in 6 years and we will keep coming back. Stay in the 300 loop if you have pet, the other pet loop is not as nice.

FDR State Park just recently upgraded area 5 with 50 amp power. About every other sight was converted. We went for a long weekend to go to Callaway Gardens and really liked the campground. If you have a big rig, make sure you check to see if area 5 is open, otherwise the rest of the park is pretty tight.

Even without 50 amp and sewer, this campground is on the most beautiful lake in Georgia. We were there for a week and barely had to run the air. Great park, but get your reservations early, they book quickly because it is a small park.

One of our favorite campgrounds. We go at least 4 times a year. The sights we stay on have a deck overlooking the lake. The only negatives are no sewer hookup and no lake access. The playground area is minimal, but we go to boat on the lake.

Great park. Easy to get in and out of. The sights are large with pull-thrus and back-ins. No playground for the kids, but who needs a playground with a beach and pool. The only negative is the walk to the beach is a couple of blocks away.

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.

The campground itself was excellent. We had heard about the golf carts, but the side we were on, the parade did not come through nightly. The fireworks were minimal and not a problem. The problem we had was with the management. They had an electrical problem in the park in which the power supply had a short that caused major damage to a motorhome and the campground wanted to blame everyone but themselves and would not take ownership to the problem. The party that had the problem had major damage to their coach and stayed the whole week, but pirateland refused to compensate them or offer other lodgings. They even lied to employee about the extent of the damage. We thought it to be the best facility in Myrtle Beach, but will never return due to the lack of customer service.

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.
