This campground was stop number 2 on our maiden voyage as a motor home family. We had been concerned about some of the postings from others regarding the condition of the roads, but found that to be a non-issue. The roads bore some evidence of past issues, but we wouldn't have noticed anything had it not been mentioned in other reviews. The grand children could ride their bikes here. The pool was their favorite though. Otherwise, we were greeted as well as we have ever been. The staff are obviously experienced campers, and took great care of us. We arrived right at dark, but we were checked in and set up in seconds. As I understand it, every site has water, electric, and sewer. What a treat. Our site was level, gravel, and a little narrow for our tastes. Our site was convenient to the office, pool, and sparkling bath house. The only thing that wasn't a few steps away was the laundry. A little further away was a huge shelter that is used for various functions including live music periodically. The shelter is on the banks of a lovely lake. While others had mentioned the highway noise from I-75, it is about a mile away, and you really don't notice it at all unless that's your 'thing'. The property is surrounded by nature preserve, and feels very isolated from the hustle and bustle. It is several miles off the interstate, including a short trip down a typical KY back road. It is about 7 miles into Georgetown with a full complement of services available there. The Pool/Bath house is where this place really shines by being well designed with a nice slide at the 'deep' end. The bath house consists of 10 individually lockable bathrooms, each with it's own sink, toilet, and shower. They were spotless, secure, and well lit. The best I've ever seen in a campground, period. Complaints? Few. The Wi-Fi was marginal at best. I'm sure they have made a significant investment, but they were very busy when we were there, and the bandwidth reflected that. It is cramped and, as a new park, shade is pretty much non-existent. The pool currently closes at 8, which is pretty early according to my kids. Adults would appreciate some no-kids time there up til 10-11. We'll be using this campground for our frequent trips to KY. Thanks for a great job!
All sites here appeared to be back in. Ours was spacious, with a concrete pad for the rig, and a crushed gravel area for living. It came complete with a picnic table, hook for a lantern, and fire ring. We were lakefront, though it was a bit of a walk through the woods to the edge. There was a nice little beach area across the road. The sites are wooded with a lot of space between you and your neighbor. The lake is used by all sorts of motorized water vessels, and it was little loud at times. The bath house was very clean, and nice, if a little dark at night. The gate staff was nice. There is NO store or ice available on site. The access to the park was a little strange, taking you through a residential subdivision to get there. Signage was minimal, but the GPS found it just fine. They close the gates at 8 pm.
This was a short overnight stop, and they are clearly geared up for that. Since the office was closed, we were greeted with envelopes demanding payment before we park anywhere (or even know there is a site available). I didn't have change, so I left $40, and decided I'd settle it up in the AM (the sign said it would be $38, ouch). We settled in quickly and went to bed. I was up early and walked about the grounds with our dog. They do have a couple of nice areas to walk the pup. They have an older but nice pool area, and newer office building that included an internet room, laundry, and bath house. I came to office to settle our bill. It seems our rate wasn't correct. The base rate should have been $36, but they then charge an additional $3 each for kids, totally $42. No discounts for AAA, Good Sam, or otherwise. Yes, the park was well kept, but we'll mark this one of the list for taking advantage.
After a short mountain drive in the dark (scary for us newbies), we found our way to the gate just in time to catch the camp host before they locked down for the night (10 pm). A quick check-in and some excellent guidance from the host, we were set up in one of their large rig drive through sites. This was quick overnight for us, and the site was perfect. The pull through sites aren't level in the traditional sense, but they are 'crowned', and we found it a breeze to just stop when we were level. There was a nice concrete pad adjacent complete with a fire ring and a lantern hook. We had a delightful wind down listening to the night sounds of the woods. And woods they are. This is a densely wooded state park. Our closest neighbor was about 2 sites away, but they just as well have been a mile. There was lots of cover between us. After a good nights sleep, we woke up to deer in our yard, which made us wonder what else may have visited in the night. The closest bath house was closed for rehab, so we packed up and drove to the next bath house. This is when the character of the place shows. The drive gets very narrow, and steep at times. The sites in the next section are back-in, and probably not suitable for larger rigs (we're 25 feet and could have fit). The bath house was basic and adequate, tho they could use a shelf in the shower area. Once we cleaned up, we continued around the loop to exit and found that there was scant room to get our (little) rig by an inappropriately parked car. Things are tight around here! Of course this second loop was where the lakefront lots were (Lake Allatoona), and the view was spectacular. We didn't linger, but plan to come back and stay for a few days here soon. This park is very convenient to I-75, and well worth jumping off for.
