Despite reading several negative reviews, our experience was outstanding. This was probably because we stayed during the "off" season. The sites are very close together, however, all were vacant around us. In fact, only a handful of the sites in the park were occupied. It was quiet and the park was well maintained. The view of the bridge is breathtaking: especially at night. The campground is only a couple of minutes from downtown Mackinac City. Again, if you looking for a peaceful stay, go after Labor Day.
We were extremely disappointed. In addition to the $29 campsite fee, an additional $8 parking fee for the RV and and additional $6 parking fee for our tow vehicle was tacked on. This totaled $43 per night. The park was old and our site had no water hookups. Road noise can be heard throughout the park all night. The park has an additional camping area near the water. Again, a huge let-down. The "sites" were actually made from a converted parking lot. Painted lines separated one campsite from the next.
The park is beautiful with scenic places to walk near the water. Moss hangs from large hardwoods. We were not impressed with the campsites- they were close together with little privacy. Wireless can be picked up from the parking lot of the lodge. This is a golf course / resort park.
This is a nice park and about 30 minutes from even more beautiful Magnolia Springs State Park. Very secluded and quiet. Great sites and a neat grist mill. The nearby city, Twin City, is sort of a dump. There is, however, a small grocery store there. No cell service within 20 miles of this area.
A nice little park located only minutes from I-20. What we like best about the park is the campground. Although it only has 25 sites, they are large and secluded. A restored fire tower sits in the middle of the campground. There is a mom and pop restuarant in Crawfordville that has very good and inexpensive breakfast. Only complaints- a train comes by about every 4 hours while blowing its horn. We have visited over 30 Georgia Parks and this is one of our top picks.
This is one great park! The staff was friendly, the park was clean, and there is a lot to do while there. We saw 5 alligators sunning around the springs. Dozens of large turtles swim around in the clear water. The campsites were spacious and manicured. This was the location of one of the largest Confederate prisons during the Civil War. The history and posted information is very interesting. This park may be out of the way, but it is well worth the drive.
